We have been talking to the Girl about going to preschool for several months now, and she has always seemed very excited about the idea, which made us happy. Over the last week or so, though, her mood has changed from "giddy about school" to "downright surly", I'm sure just because it's all new and she has never been in daycare or any other social situation similar to this before. She does go to Sunday School at our church, but most weeks there are only 3 or 4 other kids in class. This morning she did not seem to want to go to the orientation, but once we got there she seemed to have fun. In fact, she was having so much fun she didn't want to put the Play-Dough away when it was time to leave. I wonder if it also might have had something to do with the fact that the 4-year-old gentleman was also playing with Play-Dough...I think I may have to have words with that boy next week when preschool starts for real.
