Pre-school Days

After much anticipation, counting down and answering the question, "when do I go to my fun new school?" Josh started pre-school today! He has been so excited, and I have to say that I have been too!

Outside his school, with his Incredible Hulk backpack. (He picked it out, and I was shocked when he passed right by the Barbie back packs-- although Hello Kitty did get a pause. Eventually the "big strong guy" won out.)

This is Josh's favorite part of the classroom. It's a bunk you can climb up to with blankets and a tent. Perfect for some snuggly reading!




Here is Josh with his teacher Mrs. Beach. Despite the look on his face, he really likes her. This is a CLASSIC Josh look though. He gives us this one whenever we are making him do something he doesn't want to....like take another picture.



Another reason Josh loves his school is the huge stuffed animals in the lobby. Even if he didn't like his class, I think he would still love his school just because they have these animals!



He had a great time, and got to tell mommy all about it while sharing some "welcome home" cookies! (I know, I was very June Cleaver today.) But the verdict is in: Pre-school is great! And what did mommy do while Joshy was away? Grocery shopping without a 3 year old!! What a treat!

Wow. Joshy is already in school. He's such a cutie. I can't wait to see him. Can we please go to the football game together on the 20th? I'm kind of really excited about it.

How fun to have a few hours by yourself! Kindergarten is only 2 1/2 hours long. I couldn't believe it. I don't know if that is enough time for me to get much of anything done.

K he is seriously cute. I have been debating the whole preschool thing for a little while and I think I might hold off until next year. I'm glad that he likes it though, so cute. Hey I just went private and I need your email address so I can add you to my list, email me at brittanynaef@gmail.com.
