Jack's 1st Day of Preschool

My adorable baby started preschool today!! I'll admit, this event was not so heartbreaking as sending Payson off to Kindergarten all day. Preschool is, after all, only 2 1/2 hours twice a week which provide Mommy with FIVE whole hours of freedom a week! But it is always sad to think of my babies growing up. :(

This handsome guy has been SO excited to start "school" like his big sister. He could hardly wait to inherit her teacher and classroom and to do all of the fun things he had watched her do before. And then the morning came and suddenly he didn't want to go! What?! Crazy boy.

He finally decided that school would be fun when he realized that he got to wear his new school clothes and when Mom bribed him by putting a treat in his backpack for when he got home. :)

Here is my "little" guy walking up to his "classroom". I keep telling him that he doesn't have to pull the handle of his backpack out all the way to roll it so that it rolls rather than nearly drags on the ground, but he assures me that this is how you do it.

This last picture is evidence. Proof that my baby is, in fact, still wittle! He may be growing up, but he's still small enough that his backpack made it near impossible to climb the steps. :)

Of course he had a blast and can't wait to go back on Thursday. And Mom had a nice time too. I think I'm going to get used to this quiet time every once in a while. :)
