No More Preschool Pen For Me

Today was my first day of preschool which means that I'll be doing school just like Allen, Josi, and Michael this year!  Don't get me wrong, being at home and hanging out with my brothers and sister was a lot of fun, but I'm excited about being with kids my own age and learning all of that cool preschool stuff!

Here I am yesterday when my mom took me to see my classroom and to meet my teachers.

I got to play with my teachers and check out some of the really fun toys they have.

I'm used to being hugged a lot at home so I'm glad my teachers like to hug too!

Another cool toy that my teacher helped me figure out how to make work.

I guess they're not going to allow me to pull hair here either. Bummer.

Here's where I get to hang my backpack!

And guess what?  My hook is right next to Milana's !  My mom took some pictures of us together but I think she's saving those for another post. 

Back to today...my first real day of preschool. 
 Ready or not, here I come!!!

Hmmm...not sure what Mommy put in this backpack but it feels like a ton of bricks!

I mean look at this thing!  It's as big as I am.  What's up with that???

I think I'll just take a load off until the 'bus' gets here.  And just in case they don't give us snacks at this school, I think I'll munch on this leaf for some extra sustenance.

The 'bus' is here!  I get to sit next to Milana but we have to pick her up next.
This isn't the same as my carseat but I'm game to try something new.

Umm...Mommy, you might want to stop taking pictures and help this nice lady with the strap thingies or we may never get to my new school.
Mommy, are you crying?  It's ok...really.  I'm going to see you very soon and I promise I'll have lots of fun and take good notes about what I've done all day. 

Ok, so bye-bye for now. I might catch a little snooze on the way to school if that's ok.

And don't worry, Mommy.  I'll be waiting eagerly to see you at the end of my school day.


  1. Awwwwwwww! Adorable pics and narrative!! :)

  2. I am so excited that Milana and Nadia get to be together on the bus and at school. They are going to have such a great year!

  3. That is so cool that Milana and Nadia get to be Best Buds!! Wonderful!! :)

  4. How sweet, what a darling personality she has.
    I just love the one of Nadia hugging her teacher and of course with the back pack on, it's almost as big as her!!

  5. Such adorable pictures! I'm sure she will enjoy school and how cool that she and Milana go to the same school!

    I guess there must be a reason to these huge backpacks? I see them on every blog and I just kept wondering why the children don't get child-size backpacks :-)

  6. Love this post! Hope Mommy survived the day as well as I'm sure her beautiful daughter did :)

  7. Nadia is getting so big, and love her facial expressions. Another milestone for her and for her mama.

    Xo XO

  8. She looks so grown up in these shots. Love how long her hair is getting! Glad it is going well for your little scholar.

  9. SOOOOO exciting! I cannot wait for this next chapter for Sofia!!!! xo

  10. Oh that was so sweet. I bet that was a hard decision for you but a great one. She will get a lot out of it and the kids at home will have a chance to get a lot out of working with you and you not feel like you are neglecting Nadia??? Okay, I'm only projecting how it would be working for me. Sad and happy to see Ricky and the sweet little STASinator head to school 4 mornings a week in a couple of weeks.


  11. I love Nadia looking out the window;it's really cute!!!

    Love, Olivia
