Today, my big girl started pre-k! Granted, its only 2 mornings a week....but its still a big deal to us! Its the first time we've been away from each other in a very long time! Also, I've always taught where Ani went to school, so its a big adjustment.

We had to wake up and take Josh to school. I had packed a bag for her just in case we weren't able to make it back home to change and thank goodness I did. We made a quick stop at Burger King for a biscuit:

Once she was all ready we headed into her class!

This picture makes me almost cry. I just can't believe how big she has gotten. Holding her hand and walking her into the building with her little backpack on was just too bittersweet. I am such a sap and you wouldn't think her going to school for 2 mornings a week would be a big deal...but she's my only baby! She did great, she was a little hesitant at first, but once the teachers got involved she happily went with them. She is SO excited about Thursday...she gets to go on her very first field trip! The teachers are taking the kids to a Whole Foods market and she gets to ride on a bus...well actually, its a van but she calls it a bus and thinks it is the coolest thing in the world!

Also....I have to post these pictures I snapped last night. Josh was laying on the floor watching TV while I was cooking dinner last night and he dozed off for a bit. Anistyn made him nice and comfy though.

Isn't she sweet. I think its so funny seeing him in his army pants and boots...then with a little afghan...and Tookie of course!

I love how Tookie was sharing the pillow with Josh...

I love little moments like these!


  1. Too cute!! I love the nap photos!! Anistyn already has that mother instinct in her!

  2. You are such a great blogger! Always taking the right pictures to share! VERY cute!

  3. Starting school already - such a big girl. I am glad you found one you like. She looks so excited, looking back at you, but still walking forward. Man....
    I love the pics. Andy falls asleep in the strangest places, all the time. Those boys can sleep anywhere, can't they? I am glad that Ani shared her Tookie with him. He needed that to sleep comfortably.
