....the first day of a new beginning. Our little boy is starting preschool. For the next 15 + years, he will be going to school each fall. Sniff, sniff. He is tucked in his bed, his clothes are laid out, his bag is hanging by the door. He will only attend preschool Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12- 3 PM, but I feel so sad. He is my little boy! How can he be this big already? Can I really send him out the door and into school? Am I ready for this? Is he ready for this? Is his teacher ready for this? He has had some attatchement issues when it comes time to us leaving him at his previous daycare, Sunday school, VBS, etc. He usually gets so upset and cries and just breaks my heart. I know it is best to just send him in and go on my way, but I hate to see him scared and upset. The policy at his school is that we have to drop them off and go anyways, so I don't have any options. His teacher is a friend of ours and I know she will be good to him! If you would like to follow her Montessori blog, you can do that here. We visited his room last week and he had the opportunity to play with a few of the items and meet the two assistants. I plan on taking him this week for his 2 sessions and then next week there is no school on Tuesday. Beginning on Thursday of next week, I will have him ride the shuttle bus. We have been talking about this with him and showing him the bus everytime we see it in town. We also have been driving up to his school the past few nights to look at the building. He has a few friends who will be in his class, so I hope he enjoys it. I am so proud of him and I can't wait to hear all about his first day of preschool! Here are some pics from the night he got to visit his room.
