Emerson Goes to Preschool

Emerson has officially been in preschool for two weeks and she is loving it. She goes two days a week for 4 hours. Right now it seems like its the perfect amount of time but we may eventually switch to 3/4 days.

I thought I would be sad on her first day but I was honestly excited for both of us. I knew she needed more social interaction and structured play and I was looking forward to some time to get things done.

The night before I was so excited to make her lunch. I got her this adorable little bento box from Amazon. It's the perfect size for her and has been leak proof so far.

She was so excited to wear her back pack and head into the her classroom.

She went right in without hesitation and started playing with the other kids. I felt really good about my decision to start her a little earlier than we had planned. When I went to pick her up she was so excited to tell me about her day. Her teacher said she did great except for one thing: she wouldn't leave her shoes on. The girls hates wearing shoes just like her momma!

Since then she become accustomed to taking a picture in the parking lot before going in and keeping her shoes on. 

They've made some adorable crafts and she always seems so happy when I pick her up. I also like that they are a Christian, family oriented school while also being accredited by one of the top accrediting agencies.

On the Friday before Mother's Day they did Muffins for Mom. It was super cute and Ems was beyond excited.

And on her birthday she was able to bring treats to share with the class. They sang Happy Birthday to her and she got her own birthday crown.

So far I'd say that Emerson's enrollment in part time preschool has been a success. I've really enjoyed the one on one time with Adelyn and Emerson loves to go to school. We both miss each other during that time too, so it's always a fun little reunion when I go to pick her up. It's hard to believe she's old enough to be in preschool but it's nice to see her growing and blossoming into such a sweet, smart little girl.

Too funny about her not keeping her shoes on!!! I love that lunchbox too-I have been looking for something like that to send to the sitters with Lilly and her lunch...right now we send her with like 7 ziplock sandwich bags, this would work MUCH better!

She is so fashionable! I love all her little outfits! And we used the same lunchbox for Liam this past school year! I never once had a leakage problem, but I will say I also never put it in the dishwasher. I think it says you *can* wash it in the dishwasher but I didn't want to risk messing with the seal so I hand washed it every time and we've never had any problems. I'm excited to keep using it through the summer to pack snacks in when we go places!

I couldn't stand shoes (or socks) growing up either.
Too bad it came back to haunt me later in life! ;)
