Shane started preschool today and was very excited to get the backpack out and head to school like the girls. I can't believe that next year he will be in Kindergarten. He literally has grown up right before my eyes. I signed Shane up for afternoon preschool which is a first at our house. I was thinking when we got our little guy it would be nice for them to have time to bond in the morning in case he napped in the afternoon. I wasn't sure I was going to like it since we have only done mornings before. I think I am really going to like it. I actually feel like I have more time with him in the mornings. It seemed like when he did morning preschool we would get home and have lunch, rest a bit, play a game or read books and it was time to run out and get the girls. We are usually up and ready when we bring the girls so it feels like we have a nice big morning to spend together. The girl's first day back to school we stopped for some breakfast at Starbucks. He has tried to convince me to do that every day since but has quickly realized that was a special outing and won't be an every morning occurrence.
Doesn't that smile with that dimple just scream trouble!
Since Shane had afternoon preschool him and Eric went for lunch on his first day instead of breakfast. Shane requested Panera Bread for mac-n-cheese. He was super excited to have lunch with his dad and then have him bring him to his first day.
Once again I didn't want to miss out so I met them at school for some pictures of Shane's 1st day. Shane asked his teacher Miss Molly to pose by the kitchen with some fruit. Shane is so excited to have Miss Molly as a teacher. She is wonderful, loving, nurturing, creative and most of all passionate about what she does. She is also the director of the preschool and has developed an amazing program that has been recognized by the state and received the "Excellence in Early Childhood Award" this year. We couldn't be more excited to have her investing in Shane's life this year.
Shane is also very excited to have Miss Tracy as his teacher again this year. She was his teacher last year as well and we absolutely loved her. She has such a gentle spirit and a genuine love for the kids. Shane was so excited when he found out Miss Tracy was his teacher again. He said, "Isn't she just so nice!"
Shane is super excited about having his new friend Max in his class. Max's mom and I work together and they just met but have become fast friends.
They wanted to do a funny face picture so we obliged these two little clowns. I am pretty sure I don't have any back to school pictures of the girls like this. Boys with be boys!!! I am pretty sure with these two Miss Molly and Miss Tracy just may have their hands full.
Shane had a great 1st day! He read the book the Kissing Hand so now wants to kiss my hand all the time just in case I miss him. So cute!! He made sure to tell me right away that he did not have to sit in the thinking chair today!
I gave Shane this book in the morning before he went to preschool. It is a sweet book that encourages little ones to pray knowing God will always hear and is forever near. It was a great way to start our day!
