Today was the BIG day!! Brody’s first day of Pre-K!
He was all smiles this morning before we left the house! He was seriously so excited that he could hardly wait to leave the house and head to school!
He looked so big with his huge backpack and his lunchbox.
Sister got in on the picture action! She was saying, “cheeeese”!
My sweet boy and me.
Brody and Daddy.
My list of things we couldn’t forget on our way out the door this morning. I’m so forgetful after kids that this is necessary when something is important. :)
We left the house a little after 7 so that we had time to stop for a special breakfast treat for Brody. He loved the donuts! I’m sure his teacher appreciated the sugar we gave him for breakfast. It was only one morning! :)
After breakfast we headed to school! Big Daddy and Gigi met us in the parking lot to see Brody before he went inside for his first day. Brody was so excited to see them!
Brody attends our church’s private school. My mom works in the church office on the same campus Brody attends. It’s nice to know that she is there with him every day. It’s also nice in case I ever run late on pick-up…He can just hang out in her office! :)
The 4 of us!
Josh, Jillian and I walked Brody into his classroom and helped him put his things away in his cubby. He asked us in the parking lot if he could just go in by himself. :) He was feeling SO big this morning!
Brody with his sweet teacher! His face is priceless. Pre-K mug shot?
This is how we left him this morning…happily coloring! He wouldn’t even look up to tell us bye. That’s exactly how I hoped it would be this morning!
I had not cried once about preschool leading up to today, and I really didn’t think I would cry, but when Jillian and I got in the car after drop-off and I heard her little voice say from the backseat, “Where Brody?”, the tears flowed. I wasn’t sad or heartbroken. I just think my momma-heart needed a few minutes to take it all in this morning. The tears stopped about as quickly as they started and Jillian and I went about our day just fine! We had a great time and got a lot accomplished.
It was fun to pick Brody up this afternoon and hear all about his day! His teacher complimented him on his great manners and said he had a good day! He told me he liked recess and he liked the cafeteria! Ha! He really seemed to love his first day! We celebrated with fro-yo after school and he told me all about his day. We are so thankful for a wonderful first day!
I’m so looking forward to our preschool days! I love having our kiddos home with me, but Brody is our child that needs structure and thrives in routines, so we are so happy to be back on a schedule! I’m sure I’m not the only mom that feels this way, right? ;)
I hope those of you who had kiddos with first days at school today had wonderful days back as well! I’ve loved seeing all the pictures of your cuties.
