First Day of School

Today was Ellie’s first day of school. Of course, it’s been raining all morning, adn it’s just a generally crummy day, so she didn’t want to wake up this morning at all. But eventually we wrangled her into some clothes, and she had Lucky Charms and part of a bagel for breakfast. We started walking to school in the rain, but with her in her heavy rain boots and carrying her umbrella, I had to pick her up and carry her most of the way there.
We got to school with a bunch of other kids walking into class around the same time. Her buddy Stella was already there and playing with Play-Doh. She changed into her shoes and took off her jacket, and another boy started crying since his dad was leaving. She was a little befuddled and stared at him for a while, but luckily, one of the teachers took him out of the room to calm him down, or we might have had a chain-reaction meltdown. Ellie quickly found a toy to grab and play with for a while, and was watching Stella with the Play-Doh when we left.
I got lots of pictures, of school, and our trip to Grandma Ratkowski at Space Camp, but didn’t have the time to post them before I had to get to work, so expect those sometime this week.
Update: Ellie’s back home from her first day. When Lisa picked her up she had a big smile on her face. Ellie did some coloring, and was pleasantly surprised when they gave her a snack at 11am. She just said “No, I not want any lunch.” But then when they told her it was a snack, she thought that was great. Oh, and one of the other girls had an accident, but she didn’t. Hooray for that! Our little girl is so grown up now, it’s amazing.
