Jules First Day of Pre-School!

Our big girl started Pre-School today! She was very exicted when she woke up this morning and did great walking in. Then mommy started with the tears and that was Julsies un-doing. She had trouble saying good-bye and letting us leave. I felt terrible, I think she would have been just fine if I would have kept my emotions in check! Sheesh!

I did call over lunch to see how she was doing and her teacher said that not even five minutes after we left she was fine and has been fine and doing well all day! I can't wait to get my arms around her tonight and see how her first day was. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better start (for me) and we will all get through this adjustment and new chapter in her life just fine!!

Jules is excited....

....can you tell?!?!?!?!!!!

Last night we went to her open house at her new school. She met her teacher Ms. Mahoney and saw what her classroom will look like. She also was able to see where she will go before and after school. Pax Place is a really neat room with lots of fun things to play with and do. She met Ms. Sue who will be her teacher during those times. We met a couple of other parents and children who will be in her class. She is beyond excited and ready to start! Last night she found her first day outfit and already has it laid out.

I know it is just pre-school, but I found myself tearing up when we entered the classroom. I just can't believe how big Jules is and what a little girl she is becoming. I am so proud of her and think she is just the greatest thing I have ever done!

I think the school is going to be just great for her. We stayed for orientation and learned about what she will be learning and some of their practices. A Montessori school is a little different, but I think it will be a great fit for Julianna.

State Fair Time!

Tuesday we were able to enjoy a little time at the fair. Drew took Jules early in the day to see the animals (which I am allergic to) and I met them around lunchtime. We based the day on things that Jules wanted to see. It was so much fun watching her take everything in.

She had a blast and keeps asking to go back!

Notice Julianna's shirt? It had pics of baby chicks on there. She couldn't wait to show them her shirt. She was talking to them and telling them that they matched their shirt. One even looked up at her and walked over towards her. It was priceless!

Baby Ostriches! Too cute!

These pics are more for Grandma Lili to see. Jules had fun being a "farmer". This exhibit at the fair was the highlight of her day!

Ready to plant my crop!

Planting some "green peppers"
Getting her crop!

How cute is she?

Gassing up her tractor to drive around the "farm"

She sold all of her goods at the Farmer's Market and was paid for all of her goodies!

"Paying" for her treat!

All that hardwork paid off! She chose a bomb pop as reward for her efforts.

She HAD to ride the train - you know, for Grandpa Bush.... :o)

After all of that, we looked in the stroller, and this is what we saw......completely passed out! Notice her new shades? She wanted to have shades just like mommy's, so I couldn't resist. They were only $3.00 at the liquidators booth!! :o)
It was a great day!
