 'The Boy' started preschool.  It was exciting, overwhelming and emotional all at the same time.  And that was just me.  I felt like a kid in the candy store when we toured his new learning facility and giddily filled out paper after paper in the admissions packet.  I have never been so excited for my child to reach a milestone in my life.  I can't believe that I have such a big boy.

He was pretty excited, too...

I just looove this picture!

 He walked to the classroom so confidently.

 He walked right in and never turned around to look at me again.  (I love how the other kids are looking at me like, 'why is that lady taking pictures?")

Pretty sure the reason he never turned around was because he had an agenda.  Straight to the train table!

I cried the whole way home.  When we got home, I was all excited to have one on one time with 'Munchkin' and she fell asleep within a half an hour of being home.  I literally sat on the floor and stared into the quietness of my house wondering what I should do for about a half an hour.  Eventually, I took a shower without any interruptions.  It was brilliant.  I love preschool!

He had a great first week and he just adores his teacher, Miss Sonia.  I think he may have a tiny crush on her. He even brought home a letter 'N' cover in newspaper cutouts and a lamb covered in cotton balls that he glued all by himself.  I cried.  I know, I know.  I am just so proud.  I'll try harder to contain myself when he's in high school but I can't promise anything.
