Well Madison went to school toady and you would have thought she had been attending all her life :) She was so excited. Normally she is a bear before 9 am but this morning she woke up with a smile....she knew she was going to school. She ate her breakfast, we got her dressed and fixed her hair without any tears (which is an accomplishment since all those curls tangle so bad)!
Standing outside the school (she looks so tiny)!
Walking into school like such a big girl :)
When we got to school she wanted her backpack on her back and her lunch box in her hand (no help from mommy). She walked right into the building smiling the whole way in. I was thinking this is great, I hope she keeps this up. We got to her room where there were a few children crying and clinging and I thought "ok here it goes, surely she will start clinging to me now!" Well she didn't :(
She put her backpack and lunch box up with some help from Caleb since it is his old room and he knew the drill and marched into her room! I was shocked and hurt :( Okay a little sad but not hurt, I am so glad she wasn't crying b/c it would have been much harder to leave her if she was. I didn't even get a kiss and hug bye. I had to call her back to do those things. She came back and gave me a hug and kiss and told me she would see me later :( I didn't cry, I didn't even get teary eyed b/c I was so proud of her.
When I picked her up at 1:30, she was happy to see me and tell me about her day. I think she would have liked to stay and play some more though :) She can't wait until Thursday when she can go back to "her school"!
There are a 2 more posts if you scroll down a little...I typed them a few days ago but only today was able to add the pics of Caleb's 1st day and Taylor in her flower girl dress :) My computer is "working" at least for the moment :)
