Today was the boys' first day of preschool for the year. R is in his last year of preschool, and K is in his first year of actual preschool. (Last year he was in a Children's Morning Out program.)
It was orientation day, meaning parents came with the kids and spent an hour hanging out in the classroom with them. Since both classes "orientated" at the same time, N came with us so he could go to K's classroom with him. R asked me to stay with him (!!!) It wasn't that long ago that R was all Daddy, all the time, so that felt GOOD!
R seemed to get along well with his classmates and he loves his teacher. It looks like it is going to be a good year, hooray!
Here they are, all ready to go. Last night R decided he wanted to wear his dinosaur shirt today. Then I was asking K today which shirt he wanted and he said he wanted HIS dinosaur shirt. Unfortunately, K doesn't have a dinosaur shirt! Then he decided to wear a race car shirt...which he also doesn't have. Then he asked for his Elmo shirt, but I just threw that one away because Elmo's eyes were all yellow and scary looking. So then I asked R if K could borrow his Sesame Place shirt to wear today, and R decided he wanted to wear the Sesame Place shirt but K could borrow his dinosaur shirt. So it all worked out in the end!
R in his classroom, playing with a toy. I used to play with this exact same toy when I was little. I haven't seen one in probably almost 30 years!
K in his classroom. N got jostled by someone just as he was taking the pic which is why it's all off-kilter, but K wasn't in a picture-taking mood so it's all we've got.
The boys enjoyed it and are looking forward to getting down to their regular schedules.
