This face says it all. IT'S MY FIRST DAY OF PRE-SCHOOL, YOU GUYS!!!

Our little man is officially a pre-schooler! He is going to Open Door School, which is attached to our church, though it is not a UU school. His teachers are really sweet and the staff is excellent! Ms. Sheila, the director, is amazing, and truly a standout in the profession. I can't wait to put her on speed-dial for all of my parenting/positive discipline questions!

He will be in class 2 days a week for 3 hours each day. They are doing a slow ease-in schedule, so he was only in class for an hour today, with 2 other classmates (3 didn't show up today). He, of course, started drawing with crayons right away, ripped off the paper that was taped to the table, and took it across the room to color while sitting on the floor. He read several books. He climbed on furniture. So, a typical morning for JJ. I'm looking forward to returning on Monday.

Here are several pictures before we left for school:

And...after school. All tuckered out!
