Sophie Wei's First Day of School

Today was Sophie Wei's first day of school. She is attending the same preschool that Simone goes to. It was also the first day that she has been away from Rick and I. We had a late start due to snow that arrived yesterday. That was a blessing for us because we had tons of extra time to get ready.

When it was time for me to go Sophie Wei followed me to the door area. I picked her up and she pressed her check against mine. I told her that I needed to go but held her for a couple of minutes. I then tried to redirect her by the gift wrapping area with some tape and it worked. She was then fine with me leaving, no tears. Today she was ready so I hope tomorrow goes just as well. When Rick picked the girls up at the end of the day he said that Sophie Wei said Hi but continued to eat her snack as if she was not ready to go??

Today was a good first day for us all and it helps to know that our girls are with professionals who make their day so much fun! It makes going to work so much easier.

I almost forgot to take a photo this morning. Here are the second and third photos that I took of her.....As she made her silly faces Simone was giggling next to her.
Sophie you crack us up!

Hi girly,

Thank you for your email while we were in FL. What an adventure! Beth will have countless stories to tell. I will try and get us going on pics soon, but in the meantime wanted to stop by and let you know I missed you while we were gone. Hope all is well and you had a wonderful break. The picks are awesome and so great to see Sophie walking confidently!

Blessings,
R
