First Day of School 2008

Today was a great first day of preschool for Molly and Sadie. They woke up very excited and our morning went great, thanks to jmom's morning routine chart. I'm sure everyone that knows us is not going to believe this, but we were one of the first to arrive at school this morning! Certainly not the norm for the Mayfields (or Latefields, as my Mom likes to call us). There were a few brief tears from Molly and Sadie as we left, but the sweet preschool director called mid-morning to tell me they were doing great.

Ready to go in!

When I picked them up they ran into my arms and told me all about their day. Molly brought a picture home (that she doesn't look too excited in):

She told me all about making gingerbread men with peanut butter and sugar. They left the gingerbread men on plates in the room while they went to the playground. When they returned, the gingerbread men and the plates were gone (following the story they read). Sadie's reaction was "Molly, now how did the plates leave? They can't run away!" She didn't question that the peanut butter and sugar "men" ran away, but was puzzled by the plate. . .

I missed them, but I did enjoy my quiet morning catching up on some errands and working out!! Now to tackle the rest of my list. . .
