Kylie's First Day of Preschool

September 10, 2012

It happened. Our first born officially grew up and started Preschool. I couldn't be more proud of her :) She is attending the BYU Preschool this year, just like her Daddy (well, obviously he's not in the preschool, but they are just one building apart on campus).

The school is so great! It is full of fun activities and the nicest teachers. We are really excited for her this year!

On her first day we were all up at the crack of dawn, ready with the outfit that Kylie picked our herself and a nice hot breakfast. I was so proud that we were doing so well on time. I even had some time to curl Kylie's hair and of course take some pictures before her first day. We were all set to walk out the door until I looked at Emily and realized I totally forgot to get her dressed. Whoops, sorry child... So I scrambled to get some clothes on her and threw the girls in the car, sped up to campus, called Mike to meet us there to see Kylie off on the first day.

We got there and the gate was locked (meaning we were late!) So we had to run around the side of the building, down the hall, and come into the classroom from the backside...

Sorry, Kylie, welcome to the rest of your life. Your mother is never on time and as long as she's taking you places, you will probably always be late too...

This is my favorite picture of the whole day.
The great thing about having Kylie in the BYU Preschool is that they have an observation booth for parents and university students to observe the children. It's behind a two-way mirror so the kids don't know we're watching and it's great for those parents that might have slight separation anxiety when dropping off their oldest children for their first day of preschool (ahem...) We stayed or just a little while and watched from the booth... You always wonder how your kids act and interact when you're not around; it was fun to watch her. She makes me so proud.

She did it! She had so much fun and wouldn't stop talking about how great it was when we picked her up. And every day since, it has become my favorite part of the day to pick her up and hear all about the fun things she learned and played. She's such a big girl and it kills me but I am loving every second of watching her grow up and become a little lady.

Also, she wanted me to add, "GO COUGARS!"
