First Day of School 2011!

Today was Aida's first day of school for the 11-12 school year. It's hard to believe that she is 4 years old and such a big girl already. After many days of "prepping" Aida for the first day of school this morning it was finally here. She woke up on her own, ate her yogurt and chocolate milk for breakfast and then got dressed, brushed her teeth and put in her bow for the first day. I have been traveling so much lately that being able to spend this moment with Aida and my family was a treasure. I had a few moments to just be a "mommy." To enjoy the special times with Aida that we could never recreate. I felt very fortunate today to have a few quite , and special moments with my kids.

The whole family went with Aida on her first day -- Aida, Daddy, Christopher and Mommy. It was so special to have everyone with her. When we arrived in the classroom the very first thing Aida did was run to her teacher Ms. Hilda and give her the biggest hug I have ever seen. Then I heard one little boy in the class say "Ms. Hilda -- look at her bow, she is so beautiful!" We think you are beautiful too Aida -- but mommy wasn't quite ready for this to be the first thing the little boys said about you in class today. Daddy is determined to keep an eye on those boys! are some pictures of her first day.
She loves to work independently and she loves to do her work with her classmates.

Aida and me! Aida and Ms. Hilda

Her welcome back hug! Look at how cute all of these cute kids in her class are! It was such a great day.

After school, Grandma came with us to pick up Aida and we headed to her favorite place - McDonald's. Baby Christopher slept through it all...the perfect ending to a great first day.

We love you Aida!
