First Day of School

It finally arrived! The long-awaited first day of preschool. Isabelle was up at dawn to make sure she had plenty of time to put on her carefully laid out first-day-of-school outfit. We talked last night about how we would do her hair, about the new friends she would make and especially about the teacher she adores, Mrs. Facchini. She could hardly wait for this day to come!

We picked up Isabelle's friend Jae Jae on the way to school. Note to self: don't leave home without the Hannah Montana, Jonas Brothers or Enchanted CD's. The girls were needing their tunes.
As the children came in Mrs. Facchini took their pictures. Can you see how happy Isabelle is? Not a worry or care in the world!
Time to get down to the serious business of preschool.
After a full day including swimming lessons and an extra ballet class I thought Isabelle would be exhausted but when she got into bed tonight she was still jittery with excitement and anxious to get up and do it all over again. Let's hope we can keep up this love of school for the next 14 years!
