First day of school!

Jaden had a BLAST at his first day of Preschool! He was very excited to go, so much so that he woke up ready to hit the road at 5:45am this morning! Try again buster! He wasn't afraid one bit. He didn't even look back once! He just walked in, didn't even say 'good bye'! Off we went to do a little 'down to one kid' shopping! I thought it was going to be a breeze but Mackenna wanted to open every box of cereal and box of baggies we put in the cart. She even bit right through the outside wrapping of a big dark chocolate bar. (she has exquisite taste- 80%Cocao!) When we went to pick Jaden up we got to wait for just a bit with all the other parents and younger siblings and then his class started filing down the hall. He saw us and made a mad dash to us. He was absolutely giddy, jumping up and down and making his wierd little noises. He couldn't contain himself. he sort of paddled both of us with his hands in our faces. We will have to work on other ways of expressing sheer joy! OUCH! From what I can gather, they played...a lot, inside and outside. had a snack, he went potty in the big potty but someone flushed for him while he covered his ears. They sat in a square, 'not a circle, mama' and sat 'criss cross applesauce' and had some sort of story. I'm sure they did more than that but that was all he could get out! He wants to go back so that's good!!
Ready to go
Finding his 'cubby'
He got to hand in his first homework ever! It's a placemat that they will laminate and use for snack time. He got to pick pictures to put on it.
The last pic is of him, a classmate and Mrs. Groen, his teacher!

  1. That is awesome! I know how proud AND relieved you feel. We have a lot of the same worries over our kiddos. AND, hahahahaha! Have to laugh about the thinking it would be easier to shop with just one kid. hahahahaha! So were you sad? I cried before the bus came and Jakob just smiled at me. I hope he's having fun!
