Preschool Days!

We are all so excited around here these days because Grady started Preschool! I really should have started him sooner but between everything we had going on around here last year (pregnancy, bed rest, having a brand new baby) we are just now getting around to it. I'm glad that we waited a little longer than normal. He was soo excited to start and now is almost 100% potty trained so he was able to start in an age appropriate class.

Grady was super excited to show off his new lunchbox!

"Not one more picture Momma."

We found a wonderful place close by that he can go 2 days a week. So far he seems to LOVE it! He asks everyday if he can go to school. This makes my heart so happy and so thankful that he is ready to make new friends and learn a lot!

Once we got to school on the first day it was soo hard to get a good picture of him. He was so excited to get started that he could not stay still for one second! That is a sure sign of a good time being had.  I love this! There is one extra optional day a week that he can go where they do more "fun" things than just their regular preschool program does (i.e. tumbling class). This is what he was doing on his first school day. We decided to get his feet wet first before starting school.

I'm not sure that this will be the place that he will stay until he goes into Kinder but for right now it seems to really suit him! I would like to see him in an environment that is just a little bit more structured. That being said, I have been very impressed so far with how on top of things they seem. After only the first day I was receiving emails for the entire next months curriculum.  We will see how it goes though. 

Wish us luck :)!

Sounds like the transition is going really well, with an awesome little lunchbox to boot :)
