My Brynie is officially a big girl. Today was her first day of preschool. She's attending nursery school at a nearby church, which we heard about from Cathy and Eric. Actually, Eric attended this same preschool when he was a kid, and their nieces attend there now, so it comes highly recommended. :) It's not too intense--2 hours a day, 2 days a week. Bryn will probably go there for three years, since the program is acually for 3 and 4 year olds, but we snuck her in as a 2 year old. Chris (who is almost 2 months younger than Bryn) also started this year, so they're definitely the babies of the class. We're not super-competitive parents that want Bryn to learn multiplication early or anything; largely we just want her in the class so she can work on her social skills. Most of the time, she isn't very interested in playing with other kids, and she's absolutely terrible at sharing.... usually when another kid wants to play with her, she throws herself on top of her toys and screams "mines!" So clearly she needs a little work in that area.
I took a half day from work today so that I could take her to her first day of school--I definitely wasn't going to miss that! She had a really good time and didn't want to leave at the end. Here are some pictures of my big girl on her first day of school....

hard at work on a puzzle with one of her teachers:
"Brynie build tower!" The teachers were also impressed that she sorted by color all on her own:On a side note, now that it's officially September, I'm going to attempt to turn over a new leaf and get back to blogging with more regularly. Perhaps even more importantly, I also hoping to eventually get caught up on reading all of your blogs (which I haven't done for at least a week and a half) in an effort to find out what's going on with all of you!
