First Day of School!

It's official, summer vacation has ended :( But we are looking forward to this year as Ben started a new school today! He is in PK-4 at one of the Catholic schools in our town. He was a little nervous about starting a new school, considering he had been at his old school since he was an infant, but this morning he seemed pretty excited. Abbey wanted in on the picture as well - she knew it was an important day and didn't want to be left out.

This was when we got to school - he quickly unbuckled himself and was ready to go!
Here he is in front of school. He did great at drop off! He gave me a quick hug and kiss and then went into school with his teacher without a problem. He looked a little nervous, but excited too. I was so proud of him. Abbey, on the other hand, cried when Ben went in and didn't want to walk back to the car. She just stood outside the closed door crying. All morning she told me she missed Ben. But after we dropped him off we went to a nearby park where the school was having a welcome coffee. So the girls got to play and I got to meet some of the other preschool 4 parents. It was a fun morning for everyone and I think Abbey will soon start to enjoy her all-girl mornings as we start to do some fun stuff that is more age appropriate for the girls.

He had a great day! He was so excited when I picked him up and told me all about what they did and the new kids he met. We are really looking forward to this year!
