Hope started her first day of preschool today. Another day of endless crying for mommy. I know that most kids do have to go to school and I know Hope needs the social interaction and the in-depth learning she will get, but it is so hard. She is my baby and the last one to start school. I think knowing that today is the last first day of school for my kids was hard for me to grasp.
Hope loved her first day of school and I am so relieved. I will be driving her every day because the bus scares me...she is really little. When she was dropped off this morning, they were waiting for her. The assistant came and got her out of the Tahoe and then I sat and watched her walk into the school. I promptly drove to the parking lot and cried my eyes out.
I pray this school year will help her and that the illness, bugs, germs, etc. stay away from all of us. The potential for scary illnesses is one of the biggest worries I have about her going to school. My boys are in school and I know they bring stuff home, but it is different when she is in direct contact with other kids and their bugs.

Now for some cute pictures from her birthday:
|Hope's PawPaw (my father-in-law) rented a pony for Hope's birthday. This picture shows a scared little girl, but it didn't take long to warm her up.|
|Once she realized how much fun she was having, she wouldn't get off until the pony had to leave. Now, she asks for one all the time...I keep telling her to ask her PawPaw (although I do worry that she may get one for Christmas from him).|

Sadly, yesterday was her last day. She can only attend until she is three years old. She will turn three next Friday. I will be in California all week and I really wanted to be there on her last day. I needed to say 'goodbye' to everyone that has done so much for Hope and for my family. They taught her so much and provided so much help for our family to help Hope develop. They scheduled her IEP and attended with me and made sure Hope would get the services she needs in preschool. They have been my champions, friends, teachers, and caregivers for almost three years. It was bittersweet seeing everyone and knowing that Hope would not be seeing them every week.
Here are some pictures of the wonderful, amazing, talented, and caring people that have done so much:
