First Day of 2 year old Preschool





Charlie was so excited about starting school that he didn't fall asleep until after 10pm last night. We packed his backpack and his lunchbox, set out his "first day of school" clothes and "school" shoes, and put together his little bag of gifts for his classroom (Lysol wipes and yummy "safety-pops"). He was chanting "school, school, school" on our short little drive to school and walked in all smiles while holding his daddy's hand! When daddy turned to leave though, poor Charlie wouldn't let go. After his sweet teacher pried him loose, we said our quick goodbyes and stood silently in the hallway (out of his sight) until we couldn't hear him crying anymore. No tears from mommy or daddy (we were trying to be tough), but daddy felt really bad!

Poor little Kate got toted along on this little outing, but was a good sport. I'm sure Charlie is having a splendid time, playing with his friends Caroline and Ethan and others he is meeting for the first time today. Only 40 minutes until I get to go pick him up...I can't wait! Hopefully Thursday will be an easier goodbye, as only mommy and Kate will be dropping him off at school...we'll see!

He is so cute! Riley loves school so much that she jumps on me every morning and says, "Take me to school!" It will be a great day when he runs into the room and says, "Bye Mommy!"

Caroline told me she played with Charlie today. She was excited about having him in the class. At dinner she said "Mommy Bretton wasn't there today, maybe tomorrow:)" How sweet that they have become little friends.
