Antalya's 1st Day of School

We are still battling jet lag. Some of us worse than others. A certain 5 month old in our house has hardly slept a wink the last two nights. I'm blaming it on a mixture of jet-lag, teething, and a cold.

Somehow we still managed to make it out the door this morning for Antalya's much anticipated first day of preschool.

She loved it!

She will go five days a week. She is the only one in her class of 30 that has special needs, and has a great teacher assigned just to her to provide one-on-one support the entire time. And one of the best parts? It's only three blocks from our flat - just the right distance for her to walk without insisting on being carried.

Yeah for school! Sorry about the baby, that makes life a little hard.
Good luck! I hope this next week gets a little better!

Yay! I'm not alone! Tonight while I'm pacing the floors, waiting, I'll be thinking of you. I'm so happy for Antalya and for you. It must feel so great to have her in such a great situation.
