Scarlett was excited to go to preschool but not so much that she ever brought it up without us asking her about it. When the time came she was all smiles and just went right in. I'm sure it helped that we've been there several times before and all but one of the other five kids are in her sunbeam class.
When we walked Penelope to school on the first day all the kids insisted on wearing their backpacks. After we walked Penelope we walked right back home and hoped in the car to take Scarlett to preschool. That will be our normal twice a week routine until Penelope gets more comfertable and we start driving her in the mornings.
