Madison went to VBS!

This week is VBS at Farragut. Taylor and Caleb love to go to this one b/c they get to see all their friends at that Church. We don't see them as much as we used too. This church allows 3 yr olds to come. Madison wanted to go to VBS yesterday but I hadn't signed her up since I figured she wouldn't go. Well she was upset when the others went and she didn't. She kept saying "I go VBS too". So this morning after taking the older 2 and dropping them off I went back home and got Madison ready and took her up there (The church is less than 5 minutes from our house so this was doable).

She was excited about going but the whole way there kept saying "Mommy go to VBS with me, you stay with me mommy". I kept telling her that I couldn't stay with her b/c I was too big for VBS. I reminded her that she was going to see her friend Abby and have lots of fun! Well when we got there she walked in like such a big girl. We went and found her class (they were having snack since we were a little late) and she went right with Mrs Michelle to find Abby and sit by her! I was so proud (and a little sad). She doesn't even like me to leave her at home or at her grandparent's house :) She didn't look back so I slipped out the door. I didn't hear any crying start so I took that as a good sign and off I went to run errands by myself :) Her teachers know her and me and won't hesitate to call if she cries very much (or for very long) but hopefully she will see how much fun she can have with other kids in a "structured environment" (like preschool is going to be next month).

Here she is enjoying a popsicle while waiting for me to pick her up!

Showing me her "craft". When she was walking to the car she kept saying "I made this"

How fun for Madison! I wish the boys could have gone with them this week, but our swim lessons got in the way!

Yay for Madison. This might be a good way to break her into preschool in August.
