First Day of School (round two)

Also known as meltdown round two.

Things went a little better at home this morning with Charlotte because she was excited about loading up in the stroller and walking to school with everyone.

Apparently somewhere along the line she interpreted this to mean that *she* got to go to school.

We had a lovely walk over to school with everyone-including Malia since she is off school today.
(yesterday was the day for just seventh grade, today is the day for just eighth grade so she is home)
Malia thoroughly enjoyed feeling like top dog as she shouted her hello's to all the teachers out working parking lot duty, and to the "little kids" that she knows that are still in elementary school.  Oh boy.

Then after the picture in front of the school sign,

Taylor, Alaina, Jacob and Dallin ran off.

Charlotte was left standing there with me.

Not even Malia going home with us helped.

Charlotte was sure she was going to school.

Geesh, I'm so glad she wants to be home with me.

 Time to get our little preschool going so she sees just how much fun being home with Mom can be.  So many fun things planned, I can't wait to get started!

It's a good thing I'm not the only mom who documents her little one crying :P She is so cute when she's sad and pouting.
