1st day of preschool

Alanna had her 1st socialization for preschool today. This is a new program head start is offering. What it is, is a preschool teacher comes to our home once a week for 1 1/2 hours and works with Alanna on different subjects like colors, shapes, and ABCs. Then twice a month all the home base kids get together and meet to play and do classroom activities. They eat lunch and then play in the gym or outside and then come home. Today Alanna and I rode the bus and went to school. She did okay, except Alanna has never been in a classroom or daycare before and was distracted by all the cool toys and had a hard time listening when the teacher said it wasn't play time yet. Clean up time was a bit hard too, but other than that lunch and gym time was great, and so was the bus ride. The teacher kept saying Alanna was doing great so I just have to listen to her and relax a little I guess. Hopefully next time she will be able to listen a little bit better.


  1. Oh, she is so cute! Don't be too hard on her...she is a little young to sit and pay attention yet. I bet she did better than some of my 3rd graders today!

  2. She's getting so big! Preschool already! (Elliot turns three this month and is starting preschool in January - booooo :( )
