Lucy is going to Mayo

Lucy is 3 and will be 4 this summer.  She will be old enough to start Pre-K in August.  Her sister Emma Jane goes to a Science and Technology magnet school called Mayo (named after the Mayo doctors, founders of the Mayo clinic).  The school uses a lottery system to get in.  And up until this year there has been no sibling preference.  The drawing for the fall class was to be last Thursday night.  I got a call an hour before the drawing that said that they decided to do sibling preference at the last minute.  So Lucy gets to go to her sister's school.

She is so excited!  I am sure that she thinks she gets to spend the whole day with her sister.  But she will find out that is not the case.  Regardless, she will have a friend and defender on school property.  She will run and give her a hug when she sees her at recess.  She will wave at her from across the school when she is walking to the water fountain.  She will give her the "I love you" sign with her hand in the gym.  And she will hold her hand walking into school across the busy drop off lane before school.

We are so happy...
