1st day of Pre-school!

This is the pre-school that Alex is attending this year.

He was so excited he jumped out and put his backpack on and ran ahead of me!

When we got there they had a little circle time and let the parents stay for 10 min.
Miss Joany would ask questions and Alex would answer them out loud. I am so proud of my little man!

This was him running around the car this morning avoiding the camera. It quickly became a game. I snapped probably 20 pictures.

This was right after breakfast. He was checking out his new backpack and all the cool pockets it had. He picked this backpack out all by himself. I think that is one of the reasons he likes it SO much!

Walking to the car.

Running out of the house ready to go

I can't believe my little man is already old enough to go to pre-school . I remember the day we got the phone call telling us he was born. It really does feel like yesterday. I remember so clearly driving the 3 hours to the hospital. Those 3 hours seemed like a life time. I remember holding him in my arms for the first time, what a precious moment that was. Now he is my big 3 year old going to school. He LOVES school. I think he would go every day if we would let him. I asked him how his day went and he said "we had snacks" I said well what did you do? "we had snacks" I asked him a few other questions but he only said they had snacks. LOL I then asked him things like did you play with play dough, read books, draw. . .etc. . .and he said yes. They end the day playing outside at the playground. I love that they do that because their last memory of the day will be playing so he will always be excited to go back.

what a cute kid... nice back pack my kids chose the super hero ones or princes ones not very nice ones.. When Keayen went to school the first day of Kindergarten he rode the bus.. after he go on the bus and it drove off I realized he was really leaving and started to cry... ha ha

I was excited for my kids to go to school this year but the first couple of days they were gone I felt a little emptiness.. but that went away and now it just is nice I get a little break and they do too.. :)

Joel started pre-school this week too. It's at a church and the curriculum is bible based. He came home saying we learned about this guy (aka Adam). But he loved it. :)
