Liam FINALLY started preschool today. (I say finally not because I was so ready to have him gone in the afternoons, but finally because this boy has been waiting to go to school for the last 2 years). It didn’t help that Gav’s been in school for over 2 weeks already. September 8th just couldn’t get here fast enough.
Liam was beyond excited and I’m so glad. He’s usually a lot of talk, but then he gets pretty shy in new social situations. Not this time! He marched right into the building and down the hall to his class. This is one kid I’m not at all worried about-he’s going to LOVE being at school.
Liam had a very long explanation why he didn’t want to take this picture with his backpack on. If you know him at all, you know he’s the KING of long explanations and bunny trails which I usually can’t follow.
He found his locker, hung his stuff right up, and headed off into class (he even remembered to hug and kiss me before saying goodbye!)
In other news, we went to a new parent meet and greet this morning and Josh ran into another mom there who used to wait tables with him 15 YEARS ago in OMAHA. How weird is that?? (And if you know my husband at all, you know that everywhere we go we run into someone he knows…..just not usually from another state……that long ago).
In other, other news…..a HUGE FAIL for me in the school supplies department for preschool. I spent upwards of $50. I should have gone with the whole write the check to school thing for $35. The teacher looked at me so funny when I brought 2 gigantic bags of supplies in last week. Apparently NO ONE buys school supplies. Now I know why. You live and learn I guess!
