Yesterday was Aoife's first day of Preschool. She has been looking forward to this day for ages and was all smiles the whole morning. I can't believe that she's big enough to go to school. Where has the time gone? It seems crazy that she is as old as Aidan and Emmy were was they started school. Here's a link to a post about helping in Aidan's classroom - I hadn't started the blog when he started school. Here's a link to the first day of school 2 years ago when Emmy started preschool and Aidan started Kindergarten - for the first time.
For her first day, Aoife wore a new dress that she picked out at the store and the backpack that Daddy bought for her. She was excited to pose for a picture all by herself on the front porch and practically ran into school once we got there! When Emmy and I picked her up at 11:30, the teacher said that Aoife had done really well! She was independent - VERY independent and talked almost nonstop. The teachers were also very impressed that she was potty trained and didn't have any accidents! Yeah Aoife!!
