first day

today was lala's first day of little warriors preschool. she has been waiting for this day ever since nani started school back at the beginning of the month, and honestly, so have i! she was super excited for it to be her turn to go to school.

she picked out her clothes the night before and had her backpack ready to go. (don't you just love how her backpack is almost as big as she is! it's a good thing there wasn't anything in it or she might have just tipped right over!) we walked nani to the bus at 7:30 and then came back to wake kawena up from a dead sleep. lala had no problems at all being dropped off at class. she went right in and never looked back!

when we picked her up after school, her teacher told me that lala had done incredibly well today. what mother doesn't love to hear that! it was a success. lala was happy and excited about her first day of school and can't wait to go back tomorrow morning!

let me tell you, it is so nice to be down to just one child! i have just over 3 hours of just me and kawena! i ran so many errands and i was done before 9:30! wow! things sure get done a heck of a lot faster when i just have one child and that one child isn't walking!! i know i'm lovin' this!

i can't believe that our little lala is in preschool. she looked like such a big girl carrying her huge backpack into school this morning. it is so strange to think that she will be four in 3 weeks! crazy! and kawena will be 1! it is so true that time goes by faster the older we get! i can't even imagine how fast it will go when i am 80!

It's so nice to have a bit of freedom. And a bus? That's awesome.

I am sure she had a blast. She looks so cute. I am sure you enjoyed your one on one with Kawena.

what a doll lala is. isn't always happy and sad when they start school? i can't help but regret that they are growing up and yet i always appreciate a bit of freedom.
somehow, i'm doing it wrong and ian is in preschool while henry's home--then henry goes to afternoon kinder when ian gets home. oh well, being down to two kids from four still seems easier.
