So Jacey started school again last Thursday. Poor Brooklyn woke up so sad that morning and wore the biggest frown as Jacey got ready. I asked her what was wrong and she said "Jacey is going to school and this day is going to be boring!" Thankfully Brooklyn starts preschool next week and will have something of her own to look forward to!
This year seemed a little surreal, as if it wasn't really time to start up again yet, but when I looked at the school calendar from last year it showed that we were actually starting school a week later this year than last. The first day of school Jacey was excited yet nervous to go, saying "What if the kids or the teacher don't like me?", etc. But when I dropped her off at school she was right back into her element, hugging all of her school friends and seeming quite the confident little cookie. She was also very excited because I got her a new shirt that she really wanted, along with a matching silver headband. Add to that the silver sandals we bought recently and this girl was all about the bling! She apparently also had quite the sassy attitude to match that day. She told me that when she walked by a group of boys in the hall that she knew their mouths dropped open when they saw her (her version of events!) She said that she stuck her tongue out at them, and then flashed them a big "L" (for loser--where does she learn this stuff?). In other events, she also said that she resumed her favorite recess pastime--chasing boys. Here's to another year of growing up!
