Juno started preschool yesterday!!
I'm not quite sure. She can't talk, after all, so the only thing she says when we ask about preschool is "Um, play!"
Her preschool is through the school district so it's in an elementary school (not our neighborhood school, grrrr). As soon as I opened the door to the school building, she said "Bye, Mom," and let go of my hand and started to walk away. I said "Oh wait, let me take you to your classroom!" When we got to her classroom, she again said "Bye, Mom," and walked right in without a backward glance. And she was all smiles when I picked her up!
And I was a little mopey while she was gone (Helena is home with me in the mornings, but she went to a friend's house yesterday) but it wasn't too bad. I do find myself thinking longingly of the days that I had three crazy kids at home and we spent our days at the library, the park, playing in the yard with friends, going for walks, at the zoo, and doing sidewalk chalk on the driveway. I really loved having a houseful of little kids home with me full time. BUT life goes on and we are in a new phase!
