1st day of preschool

a good start to a big day!

1st day of school time!

ready to go, Mama

freezing morning!

Moose & his teacher, Miss D
The first day of school went so well. I got Moose up and fed him breakfast. We read a story and played a little before I got Squirt out of bed. I quickly changed him and got their coats/hats/gloves on. We headed out the door and made it to school just before 8am. I took Moose in and he pretty much was ready to be rid of me. haha He took his coat/hat/gloves off and Miss D showed him where to hang them up (he has his own hook!). He picked up Buzz Lightyear and then Scar (from Lion King), barely gave me a hug, and I was off. I didn't cry...I teared up for awhile but I didn't cry!

sock puppet stole the pacifier!

give it back!

Squirt & I went home, he ate his banana for breakfast. And we cuddled for awhile. Then we read stories and I chased him around the living room (he loves that). Seriously, we didn't do much at home. We sang songs...well, I sang and Squirt danced. Then we headed to the library before picking up "Bubba."

Moose and his classmates were headed out the door as I came to pick him up. He said good-bye to his teachers (I need to get pictures of his classmates so he learns their names easier) and wanted to ride the bus....I told him he gets to ride with his mama. He didn't (can't?) really tell me about his day but Miss D sent home a note (LOVE that), but just said "school over" - not upset or happy, just matter of factly. He said he wants to go back on Monday. AND he has school pictures on the 9th and can send valentines on the 14th. I'm excited for things like that.

His teacher's note said:
"Tristan had a GREAT day!
You are right! He loves music. He played in the water table with sharks and whales. He pushed the semi with farm animals in it. We fingerpainted a fish for group work. He went to the restroom at 10 and sat to urinate (haha...I love that she said that). We read an animal book and had a few crackers and chocolate milk for a snack. We did puzzles and sang songs. You guys are awesome parents. Tristan had great skills. You can really tell you guys have worked hard with him. Keep up the awesome work. IT shows :-)
Have a warm weekend.
Miss D"

She told me she was impressed by his skills and I just said Moose does a lot of hard work for me. And he does. Just this week he started to say "bless this Food to our bodies" instead of "bless this Bood to our bodies" for his meal prayer, and he says "Hummingbird" instead "Cummingbird." So proud of these little accomplishments!!

Anyway, that's all and I guess on Monday he'll go back to school. :D

Sounds like Tristan has a FANTASTIC teacher! I love the note she sent! How encouraging!!

Angie said...

Yahoo. Now that's a resolution I can stand behind. Too bad "to keep growing" is not the same for an adult as it is for a child. :)

Stacey said...

Way to go Tristan! That must be a huge relief for you :) And we taught Rowan to pee sitting down too, lol. I know he'll learn how to stand on his own when he is ready :) Makes for MUCH less mess to clean up!

Jen said...

I was praying for a good day today... for all 3 of you! Yay that you have awesome teachers that wrote that note.

I am in love with his teacher already. She sounds fabulous to have written such a detailed note. Glad he had a great first day!

And that sock puppet - I think he needed a time out for taking the pacifier. :)

Cori said...

What a wonderful letter from his teacher! :) I would just relish that!

Kara said...

Oh, this note from Ms. D made me tear up! She's just amazing- and so are all the other teachers in his class! WOW! I'm so glad the first day went well and yes, she's right Randi- you do an amazing job with your sweet boy!

So great that you took pictures! Doesn't sound like you shed one tear on the first day of school! YAY!

Awww...he is growing up. I remember how it was harder on me than it was on Aiyana when she started preschool. I cannot believe I am going to be registering her for kindergarten. Just thinking about it makes me tear up!
