First day of school

Today was Hailey and Logan's first day at St. Andrews Children's Learning Center. They'll be going Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30am to 2:30pm. Hailey was really excited to use her rolling Princess backpack. Those huge bags behind them are their nap mats with home-made carrying bags (because no one sells them!) Every day I have to carry their mats, sheets, pillows, blankets, lunches, backbacks, sippy cups and diapers to and from school. It's a little ridiculous, not to mention exhausting!

Logan had a familiar face in his class...our neighbor Peter. They're good buddies. They started playing with each other as soon as they got there.

Hailey was a bit more apprehensive and just watched for a bit. I snuck out before she realized what was going on. Thank goodness, no crying when I left!

These were their very first packed lunches. Hailey had some Hello Kitty sandwiches and Logan had some bear peanut butter and jelly sandwich bites. Sides included blueberries, cheese, crackers, cereal and freeze-dried veggies. Too bad they didn't really eat any of it. (Not that I'm surprised.)

When I picked them up, the first thing Hailey said was, "Tired". Apparently she didn't nap. The first thing Logan said was "Nai nai" (milk in chinese). You can see their reactions in the videos on Logan only napped for 45 minutes (they both usually nap from 1-4pm) so they both took a long nap when they got home.

Overall, Hailey said she had fun, so that's good. We'll see how they do on Tuesday when they knows what's coming!
