FIrst Day of School!

Brady started pre-school on Tuesday September 14th. I can't tell you how excited he was to go!! He had been talking about school all summer and kept asking when he would get go so when this day FINALLY arrived he was as happy as could be!! He is going two days a week (but that's only because all the 3 day a week programs were full) for 2 hours and 45 minutes.

I think these pictures say all that needs to be said about how happy he was!!! :-)

this was the best we could get of the 4 of us!!! LOL

Brady's school had a policy that we could not walk them into their classrooms on the first day, so we had to just drop him off. I was a little concerned about this, but he did really well. When we got close to the drop of spot I turned around and it looked like he was about to cry, but he quickly said, "my eyes are just watering"!!! He pulled it together in an instant and then it was time for him to get out of the car and he never looked back, not once!!!

After we dropped Brady off, we were invited to the church hall to wait and get a report on how Brady was doing (all parents had this invitation). The school director literally went up to each and every parent there to let us know how our kids we doing. She told us Brady was "fine, fine, fine" so we decided to head out!!! I knew he'd be fine but it was good to hear that, that's for sure!!

he's spotted me!

after I picked Brady up, I took him to Starbucks for a little treat! He chose an apple fritter and apple juice!!!
All in all, the first day of school went very, very well!!!! :-) We are very proud of our little boy!!!

How cute! The first day of school is tough no matter how long the day is. Not surprised at all that Brady did "fine, fine, fine" :)
