First day of school

This morning Logan went to his first day of preschool-prep. He had so much fun! We got there a few minutes before class started (unlike being 5 minutes late for everything as usual). It was interesting how timid the parents seemed as they all brought their kids into class, as if they were more worried about the "first day of school" since our 2 year olds don't have the slightest idea what school's all about & were freely running around & playing with toys. I filled out some paperwork while Logan got comfortable (which didn't take long) & talked to his teachers about his food allergies. They have snack time & will be having a Valentine's Day party in the next class, so he won't be able to have any cookies.

I finished the paperwork, kissed Logan good-bye & left to run errands. It was strange doing stuff without Logan by my side. I mailed off his birthday party thank-you's (finally) & went to get a smoothie (since this is one of the few things I can keep down right now). By the time I was finished, it was time to go pick up Logan from school (it's only an hour class).

I got there a few minutes early & listened to them play ring around the rosie. I could hear the teachers trying to get Logan to join the circle & I could hear him trying to give "knuckles" to someone. It was pretty cute. After they were finished, the teachers opened the door so the kids could come out to greet their parents. Loan had the biggest smile on his face & gave me a huge hug. He kept talking about the things they did ("stickers", "music") & he just beamed with happiness.

The teachers took some of us inside the classroom to show us what the kids made. Logan got to show me his Valentine's Day bag that he decorated for the party later in the week. He was so proud that he did it all by himself. He gave some of his new friends hugs good-bye, gave his teachers hugs good-bye & he left without having a massive meltdown (which is unusual). When I got him in the car, I asked him about the things he did & learned about at school. He was chattering away with his one-word answers, excited about everything he did. It was awesome. I am thrilled that he had such a good time.
