Alex's First Day of Preschool

Mommy and Alex had our own preschool at home.

Gabby's first day on the bus.

Isn't this a cutie?
He did so great today! He knew we were dropping him off and picking him up later. He barely noticed that we left because he was so enthralled in all the new toys and things to do. I was so proud of him. He seemed like such a big boy. I could tell that he was excited to finally be doing what he has seen Gabby do. He even asked if he would be seeing her there because he remembers she used to go to this school. He was sad when I told him Gabby went to a different school, but he quickly got over it. I am praying for him and his teacher!

Gabby Goes to Kindergarten!!!

Gabby had a great day! And, I didn't even cry when I dropped her off. I thought I would, but I was too caught up in the details of the morning and the newness of it all. I also had a great feeling that she would be okay. She was sooo excited!!! She told me that she loved her day...they went to Art and the cafeteria for lunch. She told me they learned how to be quiet everywhere. Ha!!! Her favorite part was playing on the playground and seeing her old best friend from preschool there. She did great!

"Cooey Bird"

My grandaughter, Hartley, was playing nearby

This is our nickname for Mackenzie. Leave it to Gabby to come up with a nickname that sticks. First we called her Cooey, because she was a baby and she coos. Then when we noticed the feathery way her hair stands up on her head like a bird, the name morphed to "Cooey Bird." Then sometimes we say the rare "Cooey Bird", one of the rarest of her kind. Just silly stuff that parents say to their babies. But you can see from some of her pictures. She really has a fuzzy chic head.
