Jack's FIRST First Day of School

It happened. My baby grew up, and went to school. He attends a 3 yr. old preschool class two days a week, for roughly two hours a day. His first day was Wednesday, September 4th, and you guys? 
He LOVED it. He had gotten to meet his classmates and his teachers the day before, and he never once showed any fear or anxiety, only excitement.  He woke up around 6:30 in the morning and it was all I could do to get him to wait until 8:30 to start our walk to school. 
Instead of a backpack, they bring buckets, which then double as their cubbies.  He worked hard on decorating his with airplanes and monster trucks the night before his big day. 

When they opened the door to his classroom, he gave me a kiss, and walked right in like  he had been doing it for ages.  I anxiously counted down the minutes to pick-up time, and was greeted with all smiles and stories about school. 
 I don't think we could have asked for a better first day! It is bittersweet to be sure, but I am so glad we decided to start this year, he was clearly ready for it!
