PreK. First Day. Hey Hey!

At 8 o'clock sharp, Monday morning, August 29, 2010, Claudia ascended the ranks from nursery class to PreK-2 (three days a week from 9 am - 3 pm). I prepared for the worst, as Claudia has become attached to my hip over the past nine weeks of summer, and, simply put, my sweet girl is not good at goodbyes.
We got dressed. Claudia was thrilled to finally wear her apple tee. Things were looking pretty good. She said she was "excited" and kind of posed for a picture.
While walking to school, she definitely seemed a little nervous.
But as soon as she saw her teacher, Miss Reka, who also taught her last year, all those butterflies flew away. Nothing but smiles!
When I picked her up, she didn't want to leave. I had to remind her about my promise to get her a special "first day of school" treat. We went to the ice cream shop for one scoop of raspberry. She came home and spun around in a circle for about 5 minutes. Here she is mid-spin! Dizzy and discombobulated.
It was a great first day!
