Today was bittersweet....it was the last time ever that I woke my kids up and told them to get dressed for preschool! Never again will I say that. I am excited that they will be going to Kindergarten next year and they are too.
So to help celebrate this milestone, we made signs.
Both kids were super excited about their last day. Presley got to wear his jammies and watch a movie. Evie was going to have an ice cream party and Daddy was even coming for a water fight!
I seriously never thought this day would be here. When they were born, it seemed like school years were so far away, but here we are! We did it!
I will say I did tear up on our last drive to preschool. Never again will be doing that drive. Although next year will be easier as we'll be going to the same place.
Yes, I was the crazy parent snappign pics as the kids climbed out of the car one last time. Presley's teacher, Miss Meghan was the one to get them today. She probably thinks I'm nuts.
It's weird that something you think is so far away from happening actually eventually comes.
Well I did cry as I drove to work for mine and Gracie's last full day. It sucks to think how fast this is going. Yesterday I had my hands full of babies, diapers, bibs, etc. Now my nights are full of dance, scouts, clubs, t-ball, etc. I wouldn't trade a minute but what would I would give to go back and soak up that minute just a little bit longer.
Tonight at preschool, they had a family fun night so we went with Grandma and Grandpa.
We got some tattoos.
WE jumped in some bouncy houses.
We took one last picture with Miss Meghan.
We ran the Kindergarten dash.
We got our faces painted.
We ran some more.
All the kids going to Kindergarten got medals!
And then we found our friends Piper and Meryn and ran some more.
We played on the parks.
WE took one last picture with Miss Lynn.
We got to try out this new device on the ambulance.
WE played on another park.
We took our picture by the sign one last time.
Like I said, it's bittersweet. We are sad to close yet another chapter in our child's lives but excited for the new one that is opening up for them. Congrats Evie and Presley! You have reached your first milestone in your education journey. It's only the beginning and I can't wait to see the places they'll go. So proud of my new Kindergartners!
