Silverpups Preschool

Today was the long-awaited day of Preschool Orientation! Lukas has been asking me for months and days "Is today preschool"? Finally, I got to say YES! He woke up this morning and I asked him to get dressed (thinking it would take me asking several times for him to actually get dressed) and a few minutes later he came into my room dressed and ready to go. He said, "See how I did it the first time you asked? It's 'cause today is preschool." I couldn't get ready fast enough for him, he wanted to go RIGHT NOW. Richel & Tommy picked us up so we could all go together (Richel is Tommy's mommy). I knew right away that I was going to be one of those moms...the kind that takes pictures of every cute little thing and bawl when I take them on the first day of school. I was embarrassed to take my camera out, but I knew I would regret it if I didn't and LOOK HOW CUTE! Lukas just loved everything about his "brand new school". He goes to Riverton High School, so you think he'd be scared or intimidated of such a big school, but no, he was very excited. And he should be, it's a darling preschool and his teacher is awesome. It's actually the high school students that teach the preschool directed by Mrs. Hicks. Their classroom is so fun and I know he will learn so much this year. He wasn't scared at all and he didn't cry or anything. He just got right into things and started playing as soon as we walked in. They sang him Happy Birthday during rug time and he did so many cool things. He was very excited to put things in his cubby. There are several other neighborhood kids that go there, so it must've helped to see familiar faces. I can't wait to see what he learns and watch him grow this year! My little guy is growing up.

Oh how cute! I will be a MESS when it's time to send Aubrey off to Kindergarten. Lukas is such a smart little boy and it sounds like he'll learn a lot and have tons of fun.

I was also so excited for Kaleb's next step...Kindergarten is so fun. I only wish I could be a fly on the wall and see how he acts in there. I can't believe how fast it goes. I love hearing about his day, and all of the fun things they learn. It almost makes me miss teaching....almost.

He looks so grown up! How proud you must be.

I love each new step they make. I love watching my kids interact with other kids their age. But going to school is just a little different. It may be a small class, but it's a big world they're entering into. It takes a brave mother to let go and let him stretch his wings.
He's WAY cute by the way. And why is it that all the moms get embarassed about pulling out the camera? You know you weren't the only one!!!
