First day of PreK

Yesterday was Lilly's first day of PreK. She was so excited. She even told me "I don't need to bring blankie, mama. I'm a big kid now." (cue mama's tears) Her teachers are awesome and we are in love with the school in general.

She picked out this dress from H&M as the first-day-of-school dress in July. Girl was prepared. Can we talk about her backpack for a second too? I mean- come on. We are kinda in love.

She had a great first day. When I came to pick her up she hid because she didn't want to stop playing. She gave her teachers big hugs and woke up excited this morning, ready to go back. My mommy heart is so proud.

For a first day of school gift we gave her teachers some banana bread muffins in a mug. I stuck a toothpick in it with a green tape leaf and attached a note that said "We are excited to grow together with you this year." That's the best my night-before-over-tired brain could come up with.

We are both super excited about this year. 

And thank you Personal Creations for generously providing us with an awesome backpack for the new year.


  1. Pre-K already? How are our kiddos growing up so fast!

  2. How cute! It's amazing how fast they grow, hope the first day is a success!

  3. Love the idea for a gift, I'll have to use that for someone! I think it'd be fitting for anyone who likes coffee...or muffins! :)
