Starting Preschool

A brief recap of Nathan's first week of preschool...

 Lunch - a small task, yet significant. I have some school lunch memories that haunt me to this day, so alot of  thought was put into this.

At our learning center getting ready for our first day of school.

With his school backpack, which seems to be half his size.

Day 1 Drop Off:  We were 15 minutes to early.  While we waited for class to start there was an altercation on the playground.  Nathan was rather ugly (read yelling & pushing) a little boy. We immediately had a talk and he was asked to apologize.  Grade: B, Needs Improvement.

Day 2 Drop Off:  We arrived just minutes before class started.  Suddenly Nathan turned into me and said "I- no-want-go-school.  I-scared."  Then it was time for his class to line up.  Weeping and gnashing of teeth ensued.  Nathan's teacher, Ms. Anne picked him up and carried him while her class lined up and followed her. Grade: C-, Work in Progess.

Day 3 Drop Off: We arrived at a perfect time (not early, not late), giving Nathan and I a little time on the playground.  When it was time to line up, Nathan put on his own backpack, got in line and followed his classmates. Grade: A+, Excellent.
