Mother's Day Out

My babies started Mother's Day Out today.  Eli was so excited this morning and surprisingly willing to have his picture taken.  Jillian was in rare form and hardly ate anything at breakfast so she was definitely not in the mood for a photo shoot. :( 

My boy looking so grown up with his back pack!

About to walk in and still smiling!

Eli holding the door for sister.  She took a step or two and then freaked out and wanted me to hold her.

He looks like such a big boy! *sigh*  Eli helped me put his water and lunch where it needed to go and walked right into his class.  He hardly even said goodbye. *sniff* *sniff*

Jillian cried off and on during the day, as expected, but Eli did great and was all smiles when I picked him up! Jillian's teachers said she napped for a hour (which I consider a complete success since she was on a cot.) Eli is in the threes/fours class and they don't nap so he was exhausted on the way home.  I call that a successful first day!
