Today Zamara started preschool. We have a great preschool at our church called Abundant Life. We have had Zamara on the waiting list since she was 5 months old. Today was the big day! We were both excited and worried about how she would do in the new environment. She did great, though! She walked in with her Hello Kitty lunchbox looking like a big girl. We got there right at outside playtime, so her teacher took her little hand and walked her outside with the other kids. We watched her for a few minutes through the window as all her little classmates came up to touch her and play. I cried as I watched her. It was just too cute.
Since we both work at the church we peeked in on her all day--her poor teachers were probably sick of us. We were particularly worried about nap time. She is not the best napper, but she did great! She woke up only once and Jolene got her back to sleep fairly quickly.
When we came to pick her up at 4pm, I think she really wanted to stay and play with her new friends. She was happy to see Mommy and Daddy, but she was having fun. I don't think we could have asked for a better first day of school.
