We have been up there volunteering for about a week. Mike built a closet/room for the Einstein teachers to store things in. And Emma recently hemmed some curtains for the teachers. So once again it was a team effort to get the school ready for the first day.
Lucy was all ready to conquer Kindergarten.
And Emma was ready to be the leader that she already is.
Lucy gave her daddy a great big hug before her big day.
We practiced introducing ourselves last night to the teacher. I was the teacher and I said hello to Lucy. Then Lucy said, "Hello Mrs. Beckman, my name is Lucy, it is nice to meet you. I am ready for a great day." Emma Jane was pretending to be Lucy's mother and then started to cry and refused to leave the classroom and made a really ugly scene...it was really rather embarrassing and kind of funny in a 'hitting-a-little-too-close-to-home-kind-of-way". My children apparently know me very well.
So, after snapping this photo, I ran off without making a scene and hosted a breakfast for the new Mayo parents and didn't cry one tear...or make a scene...or refuse to leave.
