Chantel had her first day of preschool today. She was so excited and kept asking when it was time to go. She picked out a pretty outfit and had her new backpack ready. I had to stay for the first class to help ease her into it and it probably wasn't necessary. She played very well - on her own, and a little bit with others; and not really caring if I was nearby or not. She was very quiet and seemed a bit shy around the other kids. She loved all the different activity stations - her favorites were the lite bright cube, playing "doctor" on the stuffed puppies, the class fish, playing with the dolls, and the rice and water tables. And there are a LOT more stations left to explore.
