We took so many pictures. Daniel showed him where to hang his backpack. He went straight for the toys. William was sitting in his seat. No tears were shed.
Fox started preschool last week. Weird, I know. He was so ready though.
We had been looking for a preschool to get Fox into this fall for a little while. Still not having any solid mom friends in Phoenix made it pretty hard. No real recommendations for anything that was less than a half hour drive. And I knew I wanted a preschool that was taught out of the teacher's home. I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe because that's what I had growing up? probably. I mostly just wanted something that was low-key and would just be fun For Fox (and of course that he would learn a ton). He's really smart and we work with him a lot at home, so I was mostly in it for the friends and memories. Through our friend's mom, we found the perfect (for us) program.
The sweetest lady (girl? I don't know what to call her. She's probably my age) teaches out of her home. There are only about six kids in the class. Their schedule is very structured. And they have dance breaks:) And his teacher even brought cupcakes for the class on his birthday. Fox loved his first week. It's so fun looking through his folder each day to see what he's been working on.
He was all smiles on that first day. Not a nervous bone is his body. We put on Geronimo for him to sing to in the car. He wore all of his spiderman gear (hat, backpack, undies, socks). He held his teacher's hand when she walked the kids out to their parents at the end of the day. He took an awesome nap when we got home.
Oh, and incase you are wondering, Fox is already a teenager and said "maybe later" when we asked him to tell us about his school day on Thursday. Silly kid.
