Today was Kallahan's first day of preschool. He's in the 3 & 4 year old class at one of our local Christian preschools. Keeler attended the same school for three years and loved it. And now here we are starting the school years with my baby. How ever did this happen so quickly? Time flies!
I got a little emotional last night as I laid out his clothes while Tyler was giving him his bath. When we moved Kal into this bedroom he was only a couple months old and boy, it feels like yesterday.
This morning he woke up excited for school! I am so proud of my
ornery sweet boy.
Tyler took Keeler onto school at 8am so Kal and I had an hour to get him ready and take a few photos. They didn't start out the best but we managed to get several cute ones. All morning I talked with him about how fun school would be. Keeler even gave him a nice peep talk before he went to school. It made my heart smile :)
Tyler and I didn't know what to expect when we got to school... Kal humored me and took his picture by the school sign. This won't be the last one little buddy.
After he hung his backpack in his cubby and moved his name over to the door, I directed him to go play with the trucks and after a high five I tried to make my exit but as I reached the door I felt two little arms wrap around my legs. He was getting pretty emotional and clingy. Tyler helped pry him off (I knew it would be best to make my exit then) but then the teacher had to come over and pry Kal off of Tyler. We left and prayed that he wasn't too much for them to handle.
The director ended up posting a picture of the kids at circle time shortly after we left and Kal was as content as could be which put me at ease. We know he's in good hands and obviously the separation and experience will do him good.
