First Day of School...

Christian absolutely loves his preschool. He started in August when the rest of the kids started school, but you know me. He goes two days a week and has done some really fun stuff. Every morning when I drop him off, he wants "the girl" to take him in, not mommy. The school's front desk lady comes out and helps some of the kids inside when their parents drop them off at the drive thru. Yes, it is easier for me to just drop him off and not have to park, unload Emma and get Christian to class. But at the same time, it's just another one of those reminders that he doesn't need me for everything anymore. When I pick him from school he beams from ear to ear every time he sees me. He gets to take treats for the next two Mondays, so we are off to the grocery store while Emma naps...but here are some cute pics of the worlds' cutest preschooler!!


All the kids got to decorate their own bags for class. I can't even begin to tell you the anxiety I had letting Christian do it all by himself. No matching colors...no rhyme or reason as to what he put on there...My control freak issues were boiling...


But I let him do it the way he wanted, without input from OCD mommy...









and it turned out fabulous!!









It is a music preschool where the kids get to play drums, pianos and even learn notes and about composers. Christian's teacher has told me that he has some great rhythm; he can drum, dance and stay on beat. She was really impressed. Christian kicks my butt at Rock Band. He can actually play a little bit of a couple of songs. He must get that from his daddy cuz it sure isn't from me!






This is on the way to his first day of school without parents staying. I have to admit,I was a little sad. He is growing up too fast. But now when I take him to school, I am okay. I get some one on one time with Emma and I know Christian is having a good time and learning lots.





What a cutie!!

That's so cool, that preschool was seriously right down the road from where we lived last :)
