First Day of Preschool

Today was Lucas's first day of preschool! The school is located very close to our house so Abel and I both walked him there this morning. The second we walked out of our house, Lucas was so excited to get going that we could barely get him to stand still long enough to snap a few pictures! This is the best of the bunch.

Most of Lucas's best friends in town (including several from his daycare) are in school with him now. Plus, lots of other great kids that I know he'll get along with really well. Once we got to his classroom, he was off to play without a glance back. But, he was equally excited to see me at pick-up, which was a really great feeling.

Even though I've been dropping Lucas off at daycare 3 days a week since he was about 4 months old, this just seems different, and to be honest, I was a little emotional about it all. I know it will be a great experience for him, though, and a year where he'll grow and learn a great deal.

  1. Adorable! I love "first day" pictures. He looks so grown up, doesn't he? And how wonderfully convenient that the school is located at the end of your block.

  2. Congratulations! I can't believe how grown up Lucas is! How was his first day? I hope you survived!

  3. I know what you mean. Oliver started school pretty early as part of his early intervention - and even though he'd been in daycare from 3 months, seeing my two year old wearing a backpack was like a rite of passage. I still get a little misty when I see that two years later...

    So jealous about the school being so close!


Comments make my day. Thanks!
