Preschool Begins

What a beautiful morning to send my first-born off to his second year of preschool! The air was cool, and even though I know that fall doesn't technically arrived until September 22nd, I believe that today was about as fall-like of a day as we could have. So gorgeous.

Below...Caleb standing for his official "first day of school" picture. He was holding his arms because he was cold. How unusual to wear jeans and be cold on the first day of September!

Finding his name on the "Look who is here" chart.

I forgot to send his supplies on the night of orientation, so he spent a few minutes putting his crayons and markers in the right spot.

This is what I saw as I walked out the door...

As you can see, he wasn't too concerned that I was leaving! ;o) He talked all about his new teachers (I'm so glad that he was happy with them because he was sad he wouldn't have Mrs. Carrie again...he got over that in about 2 seconds after walking into the classroom), he sung a new song that he learned (and I just love hearing him sing it..."God is so good"), and he showed me the page he colored and a letter sent home for "Mom and Dad" telling me that he learned that God has a purpose for his life...and God has a purpose for my life, too!

I truly love his preschool. Looking forward to hearing all about his lessons and fun times!

Looks like he had a great day!!!!
I was thinking about you and Nel this morning (I actually called her because I knew she would be excited/crying - I knew Caleb would be fine)
Sounds like he had a great day - I am glad :)

I went to this preschool when I was little. It will be a great thing for him! I remember most of the songs and I think it set the stage for the rest of my academic life!
