PRE SCHOOL!!

I know it's just pre school, but it's still school! And it just doesn't feel like Payson's old enough to be going to any kind of school!! But I guess she is coming up on four years old and I'm having to come to terms with the fact that I can't make her stop growing.

Today was Payson's unofficial first day of pre school. They had a "short day" open house. So I got to tag along and let her meet her teacher and get acquainted with her classroom and cubby and all of that.

She had picked out her special first day of school outfit and we got all dressed up early for a photo shoot before we left.


I made her turn around so I could get a shot of her bum. I just love the little detailing on the back pockets of her pants.


Here's the big girl outside her classroom door. She loves her sun glasses. She wears them inside and out all the time.


She warmed up right away when she saw the toys out on the floor. She even made a quick friend.


And this is Payson's teacher, Mrs. Shannon. She was so sweet! I think Payson is going to love her teacher and class.


And we got one last shot on our way home, out in front of the school. The sun was right in Payson's eyes, so it's really an attractive picture of her, don't you think?

Jason left last night for Wyoming. We're hoping to see him on the weekends, but we just don't know what his schedule will be like in the beginning. He made sure to give Payson a Father's Blessing yesterday afternoon for school. We had been talking to her about it and then she saw Grandpa give her aunts blessings, so getting one of her own from her Daddy was pretty exciting.

We miss you, Daddy!! We hope things are going well in Wyoming and we know you'll do great! Can't wait to see you again soon!

So, are you not moving to Wyoming with your husband? I'm confused. I know that I have been moving and everything, but fill me in.

Hi this is Emily you posted on my blog about moving to Rock Springs Wyoming. Well I can tell you anything you want to know pretty much. House hunting here is slim pickings especially depending on your price range. The ward we go to is amazingly friendly and there are a lot of young couples and the mix of old to young is great. Where will you husband be working and have you found a house or do you need help the realtor we used here was amazing I really enjoyed her if you want her name. Also if you don't mind me asking if you haven't found a house yet what is your price range so maybe I can tell you what you might be looking at and what not.
