Lily's First Day!

It's time for Lily's 1st day of preschool!

Lily's school is 3 days a week for 6 hours and taking a lunch in a lunchbox is a definite high point for her! In preparation for school this year, we headed to Toys R Us for a Frozen lunchbox. The advantage of starting school later, all the backpacks and lunch boxes were on clearance! Score!  We found the very last Elsa and Anna lunch box!  And after careful consideration of all the choices, she picked a princess backpack.

Finally the morning was here! When she woke up, Lily started singing the Daniel Tiger  morning ritual song to get ready for school. "Clothes on, eat breakfast, brush teeth, put on shoes and off to school..." Though she wasn't happy with me that I made her eat breakfast before getting her clothes on.
She chose Fruit Loops to eat.

She picked out a pink dress {surprise surprise} to wear for her special day!

When we got to school, she was happy to find her new cubby and then begin her day. She proudly showed off her lunch box and new backpack before telling me it was time for me to leave! I'm so glad she loves it!

One of the things I love about her teacher is that she takes pictures in the moments at school that moms don't typically get to see and she shares them!  At home, we've been working with Lily to hold her pencils, crayons, markers correctly instead of in a fist, so I was happy to see that she was doing that yesterday! Now to get her to slide her hand down a little bit. ;)  Work in progress...

She had a great first day!

And because I love comparison pictures...

Here's to a great year, sweet girl!!


  1. So much bigger! Glad she loves school.

  2. I can't believe she's old enough for this already! She truly looks excited to go to school!
