Today was Haven's first day of Pre-K. She is going to Bethany elementary. (hopefully, Gibson will get in the same school, if not this year, than next year)
She goes in the MORNING, so, we were up BEFORE daddy and left at the same time.
There she is in blue. She waved at me. Later she told Grani she saw me taking her picture from the car.
Only Andrew will understand how shocked I was that she didn't cry today. Since the Spring, around April she began crying whenever we dropped her off places. Even places she was used to going to. Mother's Day Out and Sunday School involved her crying at drop off and even crying during the class.
I've been talking about school with her all summer and evertime, she would say she wanted me there with her and that she was going to cry. I would even try saying, "We can get you a special new outfit or something special for you to take with you." and her response was, "That won't help, I'll still cry."
Seeing familiar faces in her class must have really helped her. She also took Gibson to school for a week before she started. She and I had special mommy daughter time while Gibson was gone.
I guess all those things helped.
I wish you could have seen her sweet and brave smile and wave when Gibson, Elam and I left her room this morning. NO TEARS.
She had such a great day!
