First Day of Preschool

The twins started preschool after Labor Day.  They go three mornings a week, and are in the Fours class this year. 

I giddily celebrated their first day back at school with a seven mile run through parks and hills on a perfectly sunny but cool morning.  Then I headed to Starbucks for some quiet computer time, with a Frappuccino by my side.  I didn't run a single errand on that first day - I greedily enjoyed my down time.  I'd venture to say that it was well-earned this once! 

And as for the twins, well, so far they seem to be loving it - I think they were so happy to see their old friends again.

It is fun taking care of a child, never had 2 or 3 at once though. I took off from work when Debbie went back to work and took care of the baby. Caught hell at work but it was the law so too bad but it was worth it. It was nice to get a day off as it takes a lot of effort if you take care of kids the right way.

It is awesome you took a little time for your self. As mothers we often forget to renew our batteries. I bet they were very happy to see their friends. I know my grandson was thrilled.

It's nice to have a day, isn't it? And the kids do like school. Yours look cute in their rockstar outfits. :)

I know I am always the old doomsayer but aren't you taking a risk by running off by yourself like that. Twice in the last four years we've had women disappear doing that very thing. Isn't there anyone who could run with you? Safety in numbers type of thing.

My Axle tried the whole Preschool thing and he only lasted a day. While I love having him home, I have to admit that I was looking forward to some downtime myself!
