Back to School We Go

Today was back to school! Oh what a day.  Munchkin was so excited to start Pre-K4, because in Pre-K4 you have to color within the lines and you don't get to take naps.  They are the big kids.  Can I tell you how excited I am that Munchkin loves school? Oh my. It makes my heart so glad.

I spent yesterday afternoon doing all his school supply shopping.  Look at this list!  Yes- for a 4 year old. I don't even mind because he goes to a really great school that take really great care of the kids and I know they'll use these supplies to the fullest.  I thought to myself yesterday "what will it be like when I need to stock his dorm room?" Oh my!

 It was so great to see everyone when we pulled up. It really is like a family there. 

This is our second year at this school and all the Pre-K classes are together in one building. So we are really close with all the teachers.  I found this idea on Pinterest yesterday and I wish I could credit the source but I wasn't logged in, and couldn't save the pin.  It's a mason jar with chocolate chip cookies in it, and the tag says:

With you as my teacher, I am sure to be one smart cookie!

 Here's my big boy, all excited for his first day, can't you tell?  Another Pinterest idea. (Of course I can't find it now, when I do I'll come back and add the link).

He's holding a picture of him on the first day of school last year. It's pretty fun to see his growth. Last year he looked a little unsure in the picture, this year he's all smiles.

I love starting a few first day of school traditions.

Thank you to all the teachers who do what they do. Here's to a great school year!
