Exciting first day of school - 1/26/10

Today Jack started his new preschool and we couldn't be happier at how great it went. He was really happy and seemed to have a great time. He was understandably nervous at first but within about 10 minutes was answering questions and fitting right in. It's a small group of kids - 3 boys and 3 girls and seems like it's going to be the right fit for Jack until kindergarten starts in the Fall. He will be going Tue/Wed/Thur from 12:25 - 3:25.

They said the months of the year, days of the week and counted the days in the month

He got to turn the "weather wheel" to cloudy/rainy and dress the "weather bear"

Check out that happy face!

He was chosen to hold the flag for the Pledge of Allegiance
When I picked him up his teacher said he had a great day and seemed as if he had always been there. I love that! When he said grace tonight at dinner he thanked God for helping his parents find his new school - it was super sweet.

They studied penguins today - it was even dress like a penguin day (notice all the black and white). We found out a bit too late so he wore navy and it was just fine. They did a penguin craft and learned a bunch of cool penguin trivia. He loved sharing all that he learned at the dinner table tonight.

Leaving the boys previous preschool was a difficult decision, especially since it's a great place with great teachers and administrators, but it was the right decision for us. Our hearts told us it was the right decision when we made it and now we have even more proof. It feels good to know that we have made a move for Jack even if it makes life a bit harder for mommy. I know we will all adjust to the new schedule and will be happier in the long run. Benjamin is ready to start his new adventures now that he will be home with mommy and sister full-time! Will update on that next week.
