School Open House

Tonight Amelia and Graham attended the open house at their school. Attending school is going to be a HUGE change for Amelia and I'm worried about how she'll do when she's separated from me. And honestly, the thought of leaving my crying princess in a classroom without me is creating a very sick feeling in my stomach. We'll attend school twice a week. On Tuesdays, Graham and I will attend his 2 year old class and Amelia will be in sibling care. Then, on Thursdays, Amelia and I will attend the 1 year old class, and Graham will be in sibling care.

I'm hoping that the excitement Amelia demonstrated tonight is a taste of what's to come. She marched into each classroom we visited with confidence and got right down to business playing with toys. I was slightly amused by the fact that Amelia and Graham never even acknowledged each other. They chose to play on separate sides of the room...I guess they're both looking for a bit of independence!

Amelia was very impressed with the toddler sized chairs!

Last year, this exact lawnmower was Graham's favorite toy. Interestingly enough, it's the first thing that Amelia went after!

Amelia LOVES babies! This baby swing is in the sibling care room and Amelia put a baby doll into the swing and made sure the dolly had a very nice ride.

Yay! I'm so glad Amelia seemed warm to the idea of playing there! That's great that your ECFE has an open house! I have a feeling the separating part of our class may not go so well at the start of this year. Amelia may surprise you and not even notice you're gone surrounded by all of that fun stuff!
