Willa started preschool last week (Wednesday, Sept. 4). She was thrilled! We've been in Albuquerque over 2 months and we've been laying low trying to keep Oliver healthy as long as we can. Willa was so excited to start school to make a few friends. She came home after her first day and said the best thing about school was "meeting my first new best friend." She doesn't know her name or anything about her, but they played tea party with REAL water together and that sealed the deal...BFF...BEST FRIENDS FOREVER!
Willa goes twice a week for four hours. And she gets to eat lunch there. Very exciting for a four year old.
I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and do a little beginning of the year interview. Here's Willa:
And while I was at it, I "interviewed" Clark and Oliver.
Clark is 2 1/2. He talks more and more every week, but he is hard to understand. He imitates practically everything Willa says all day long. Luckily Willa doesn't mind.
Oliver is 6 weeks old. He smiles and coos when we talk to him. I remember Willa doing that. I don't remember Clark doing that. Clark's eye surgery was when he was 6 months old and he couldn't really see us until then. So we didn't get the smile shows and cooing.
I am also thrilled Willa is in school. Running errands or trying to get things done at home with only Clark and a tiny baby is so much easier. Plus, I love knowing Willa is somewhere she loves, is learning new things, is meeting new people and having new experiences. I'm excited for the school year. I love watching my kids learn and make discoveries.
