LOVE the look on his face! Out of curiosity ~ is he going to preschool @ 3 or 4? I’ve been struggling with trying to figure out if my newly 3 year old should start this year, or if we can get away w/another year at home.

He actually started last year, 2 days a week. He was 2, nearly 3 (his birthday is Sept 20th). He’s about to be 4 and this year they start more curriculum.
Last year it was play, socialization, field trips, shapes, colors etc… things that sadly, a lot of kids don’t get at home. He LOVED it and it was a nice 2 days a week for me to get work done or errands!!
He LOVES it. Last year was more of a struggle on some days, this year… he could NOT wait!

OMG! I love the expression on his face! Priceless…
August 17, 2010 at 5:03 PM
That is a frequent expression 😉
He was actually saying :FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL>> LET:S GO!

What a cutie! He definitely looks ready
My youngest starts kindergarten in a couple of weeks. She is excited. I am dreading it.

awe <3 y’all are both going to love it! I had one start kinder last year and she starts 1st on Monday and it’s such an amazing time.
My favorite part of the day.. asking her what her favorite part of the day was and what her least favorite.. who she met.. what she learned.. and watching her change and grow and experience…

Thanks, Courtney! I tend to think so. (also.. looks are very deceiving)
August 17, 2010 at 4:25 PM
Ooooh what a cutie! I will have to remember to take a photo amid the chaos on Monday
I know you’ll take a bunch! Enjoy the chaos, it’s what I love about it, it goes so (too) quickly!

He was BEYOND excited and he had such an awesome day! His teacher told me he was such a great helper that she let him pick the book at story time. This is HUGE for him!

Presh. Ous. He looks so thrilled!
Thanks, Dawn! You’ve seen him, you know he never sits still 😉 He was practically vibrating on the fireplace.. out of about 20 pics.. 3 aren’t blurred from movement 😉

I am so glad that he was such a great helper for the teacher today! I’m so grateful that he is so excited about school. His teacher will fall in love with him. He is so funny and so kind that she won’t be able to resist him.

So yes… too cute little Monkey there.
BUT… one of the biggest reasons I love you? That box on the bottom by your hearth….
