My big preschooler!!
But once again, I know that there is nothing to worry about. He's a smart kid, and this kind of structured-play learning environment will be wonderful for him, I know. Plus he loves meeting and playing with new kids, and it would be awesome for him to make friends that aren't just "mom and dad's friends' kids".
AND, his teacher seems pretty awesome. She sent this note last week about how excited she was to have him in her class:
Today's first session was merely a meet and greet, so all the parents got to meet all the other parents and all the kids in the class, and we checked out the class room and the creative room (which is by far my favorite room!) and the playground.
(Do you know how hard it is to get a picture of your child on a playground that doesn't have other kids in it? It's almost impossible!)
He will only be in school two days a week, which seems like plenty for now. Thursday is D's first day there without us. I hope he understands that we won't be joining him every day! Today he barely acknowledged us, so I think he'll be okay. And I think the fact that Rick will be dropping him off (not me) will help decrease the amount of tears. He might still get a little sad, but I predict that the sadness won't last long.
Good luck little D! I'm so proud of you!
