We've had a happy 24 hours of firsts. Our youngest began preschool yesterday. She started last year at age 2. Somehow she seemed so BIG yesterday and I just wept before we even left the house. When we arrived at her school, which she LOVES, she broke down and began sobbing and did not want to go. It was all I could do to not pick her up, hold her in my arms, whisk her away, and tell her she never had to leave my side again. She tears up the house and has big tantrums for a little girl, but oh, how I love and adore every single minute we spend together! Thankfully she enjoyed school and it was over before I knew it and she was in my arms again!
Today our little one had her first ballet class. She has watched her older siblings in all kinds of activities. She has worn a little leotard for the better part of the last year. She couldn't wait to twirl and dance like the big girls. And twirl and dance she did! She LOVED it!! I loved watching our little ballerina in class with her 2 double named best friends! AS, AC, and AH are all in class together! How cute is that?!
This afternoon our Bug began her ballet class. She took last year, but it was so fun to see her excited to be back. She said she wants to dance every year until she grows up. Whatever you want, sweet first grade baby! I love seeing her so confident. She holds her neck and back so beautifully.
Our big girls have waited patiently and missed out on a lot of activities. It was finally THEIR turn. They are going to have their FIRST ballet class tomorrow. I can't wait to post pics! However, tonight they tried their FIRST acting and voice class. They truly enjoyed it and were little naturals. Unfortunately, I think our schedule is not going to allow them to take right now, but we hope to in the future!
What a day of firsts! Tomorrow our Boy will begin golf lessons again! I wish I could be the FIRST to bed!
