Joe's first day back at preschool!
Here is Joe, ready to start his second year at Peter Pan Nursery School! Joe is a "big kid" now and will be attending the half-day program four days a week.
I have a planning commission meeting tonight, so sadly, I left the house before Joe got up this morning, and won't be back until after he's in bed. Boo. Sucky timing, for sure. But Steve sent me this photo of Joe in a mama-made t-shirt (an as-yet unblogged Flashback tee I made from a thrifted shirt with a Mickey Mouse applique) his mama-made backpack, and his A's cap (just like Dad's), and that cheered me up. Apparently Steve was barely able to get this shot before Joe ran inside to play! What a world of difference from last year, when Steve stayed with him all day at school for well over a week to help him get adjusted and used to being left behind. We were so worried he would have a hard time adjusting, but we needn't have been: Joe absolutely loves school and it has been such a positive experience for all of us.
This year, Joe is like, "Peace out, Dad! See ya!" and he's gone.
Happy new school year, Joe! We are so proud of you!
