today was a big deal for hadley and me. today was her first day at the big kid preschool. starting today she only plays on the big kid playground. today I felt exactly the same way I felt six years ago when caroline made the same change at the same school. i felt excited. i felt scared. we both felt proud as we parked in a new parking lot, walked through a new set of doors, and were greeted by a new teacher. the same teacher that taught caroline years earlier. same feelings, different child.
i knew today meant a lot to hadley as she wore her blue school tshirt, which everyone does every monday. everyone but hadley up till today. she knows she's a big kid now.
just see how she beamed
