Stella's First Day at St. Timothy's

We had homework before the first day of school!  Stella's teachers sent us home from open house with a "Feel Better Bear" to decorate.  When Wednesday morning came, this is what the back of Stella's bear looked like...
Now that Stella had some pictures from home to help her if she got lonely, she was ready to go to school!
So was Cille, who was slightly envious of Stella's lunch box...
Stella chose her own outfit for the first day of school.  I gave her a choice of three shirts with her name on them and she chose her crown shirt from Mrs. Katie at Lilly Pie Creations.  I thought wearing shirts with her name on them might make the first week a little easier on her teachers...
Posing together...
With princess hands...
Getting out of the truck at school...
She looks too grown up and it makes me sad...

She pretty much waltzed into the before care room without so much as a backward glance and went right to playing.  I was glad that she was so excited about school, but a little upset that she didn't seem to need her mommy at all!
The family portraits from open house were on display in the hall.  We have some awesome friends on this board...
Damon hung around at school long enough to catch Molly Jane arriving for her first day of school as a four-year-old...
