She was so excited to have it be her turn for first day of school pictures this morning. She has never been easier to photograph! She kept flashing one great smile after another.

I was a bit annoyed when we got to drop off and her teachers were not scheduled to arrive at school until a half hour later. I understand they don't need a full staff that early in the morning, but I fully expected that the first day would be all hands on deck! I stayed with Meg for about 45 minutes to get her settled but I wanted to get out of the way before the rest of the kids came in for drop off. Knowing there would be lots of tears, I thought her transition would go better if I was out the door before she saw other kids crying and clinging to their parents. I gave her a two minute warning that I would be leaving, and then gave her a big hug and kiss and sent her off to play. No tears in sight! Miss Maryanne, Colin's old favorite teacher, was there this morning and took Meghan off to play pushing a big cart full of baby dolls. Here is hoping she has a great day! I fully expect the second and third day to not go quite as well as today did, but we are off to a good start.
