Pre-K

It happened. Our baby started school and he will go for the next 17 or so odd years including college. Crazy cakes.

We choose to send Jackson to a private school in town. It just felt right, more so after daddy went for Open house and left feeling 100% about our decision. Jackson's teachers this year are Mrs. Jennifer and Mrs. Kelley. They are both so sweet.

Here are some pictures from open house. He was really cautious, checking everything out but, we were hopeful his first day would be tear free.


We have really been talking up school. Got some new shoes, a special book to read.

Nanny even came over one day and helped Jackson make a countdown banner. He was very excited last night when he was at the bottom!


So this morning we got up and ready for the big day. I won't lie, I was nervous. In true Jackson form he ran in the front door, excited to find his class. He jumped in the room and didn't even look back. Literally. I was so thankful. Really, I couldn't have asked for anything more than him to be that excited.


His first day went great. He was so excited when I picked him up. Talking non stop about his day. When I asked him what he learned today and I quote he said "Not to much. I learned Racoons are octernal (Nocternal). but, it was cool". So there ya have it. He is very excited to go back and is already planning his snack for tomorrow. I guess snack time is a big deal in pre-k. ;)


After school, I told him he could pick anywhere to go special for lunch. He picked Waffle House. Barf. He talked the entire lunch and even gave me this little dancing show he wanted me to tape. I would say Day 1 was a huge success. We are so proud. :) Yes, all of these words and emotions for a 4 day a week, half day pre-k. Lord, help us. Having kids makes you a softy.

Too cute! I'm glad his first day went so well. I will never forget the look of terror on Russell's face when we left him for his first day of Pre-K; I cried literally all day long. I felt horrible! But he loved it and hasn't looked back since. And Brandon...Well he has a broken leg so everything sucks right now for him. :)
