Leah's First Day of Preschool

Yesterday was a big day for us! Leah had her first day of school! She really enjoyed her day!

Her program is just 2 hours, 2 days a week this year. So it's not that much time away from me, but it is the first time I have dropped her off and left her anywhere other than with her grandparents. I was pretty emotional all week leading up to her first day, but I knew I couldn't let Leah see my nerves! She was really excited!

 When did she get so big!??

I still can't believe my first born baby is in school. It is bittersweet to see her grow and go through all of these exciting milestones. After I dropped her off, there were no tears from either one of us (I got all mine out the night before, ha!). I wanted to stay close by just in case so me and Carter went and walked around Fred Meyer for an hour and a half where I bought Leah a bunch of presents while wondering what she was doing at school. :-) It will be a fun year for her, and the silver lining is the extra one on one time I will get with Carter!


  1. I bet she did great, and how cute is she?

  2. Aww look at her, what a big girl now going off to preschool!! I know it's hard isn't it, I have been there too watching my kids go off into the world :( I would have done just what you did too lol and bought lots of gifts. I know you would have missed her heaps, it's a coping mechanism :) She is so pretty and really looks excited to be going!! I hope she enjoys it every time xo
