I can't believe another school year is officially in full swing! 2011-2012 brings a lot of changes for Olivia. She is no longer going to Mrs. West's home daycare (Mrs. West retired). She is officially a pre-schooler. She is attending Children's Discovery Center, a Christian Montessori school and happy to report she LOVES it! She is the bravest 3 year old I know. She had absolutely no fear or anxiety about starting at her new school. Here she is the morning of her first day. In fact, the only problem we had came at the end of the day. You know, most kids cry when they are dropped off and taken away from their parents. Well, not Olivia. She cried BECAUSE I came to pick her up. You can imagine how proud I felt as a parent, ripping my child away from her new school in tears.
And here are my girls together. Don't let Juju fool you. She was MORE than ready to go back to school. We have discovered this summer that she gets bored at home. You know how "most kids" would be extra tired the first couple of days back to school. Well you guessed it, not Juliana. She has been more alert and awake since she's been back to school than the whole summer she was off.
