My Chloe Anne turned 4 on August the 30th. And since we decided to go ahead and keep her back in school because of her late birthday, that meant that she started 3 year old preschool on her 4th Birthday which for our little social butterfly meant that she got her cake and ate it too!
So we filled her room with balloons for her to wake to and stuck a candle in some heart shaped cinnamon rolls and then got ready for the first day of preschool...
The backpack that Chloe used last year was just the perfect size and Aunt Jan had personalized it so we weren't ready to retire it. I jazzed it up a bit by adding a pair of wings and my dollar store addition made the records in Chloe's book. It also turns out that taking cupcakes the first day of preschool isn't a bad way to introduce yourself and just as suspected Chloe loves preschool, her teachers and loves "keeping the boys in line" (as her teachers say) even more.
Chloe's birthday falling right at the beginning of the school year makes having a birthday party with school friends difficult. So while I had the help of Nonna and Aunt Denise for a weekend visit, we had a birthday party with just church friends and gave the water slide a run for it's money to finish the summer off. We have hopes for a tea party play date with the girls from her class once we get the chance to get to know everyone.
Thank you to everyone that helped make Chloe's birthday special. I don't think a smile has left her face since!
