Eleanor's First Day of School

Eleanor has always been taken care of by my mom since I went back to work when she was 3 months old. This year, we decided she needed some little people interaction and mom needed a bit of a break so we found a wonderful little school called "Little Apostles Preschool" at St. Philip Parish in Flower Mound.

I was a bit sad that I was not able to drop her off on her first day but mom said the drop off went seamlessly and that E ran away without turning back...much like I did my first day mother like daughter. Anyway, the school even emailed us a picture of Eleanor playing today and sent home her first school art project - a little drawing she did and her hand traced on a yellow piece of construction paper saying, "I love school." I am now understanding why parents take such pride in the "artwork" their children bring home. It almost brought me to tears and I am seriously ready to mat and frame it. Ok not really but it did go straight to the fridge! Now to Pinterst for ideas on cute ways to post your childrens' artwork...I have a wall in the kitchen that is screaming chalkboard or corkboard...hmmm creative juices start flowing!

Anyway, I am so thankful for this school and will keep updates going! So proud of our sweet grown up girl...she is getting so big! A little shout out to smocked auctions for her adorable apple dress and I couldn't resist the matching patent leather them...surprising but I am becoming very fond of red on a one year old!
