First Day of Preschool
Today was Drew's first day of preschool. He loved it! He ran into the room without even saying goodbye. I had to ask him for a hug before hurrying outside so he wouldn't see my tears. I cried like a baby outside. I don't think I would have cried, had it not been for his rough beginning. I wasn't sad. It was just a milestone that I wasn't sure we'd ever get to have. And here he is, my big 3 1/2 year old miracle baby going off to preschool without me. I'm so proud of him.
When I picked him up he came running to me shouting Mommy, Mommy! Here is our conversation in the car as I remember it:
Me: What did you do in school today?
Drew: Played with toys.
Me: What else?
Drew: Played outside.
Me: What friends did you play with?
Drew: I played with Jacob and Ryan. Ryan was a sad boy. He lost his mommy.
Me: That's sad. But his mommy came back. Just like your mommy came back.
Me again: Did you have a snack?
Me:What did you have?
Drew: Goldfish and a cheese stick.
Me: That sounds good. Did you sing any songs?
Drew: Yes, wheels on the bus and open shut them.
Me: Did you learn anything about God today?
Drew: He made all the animals. Even whales and dolphins.
Me: That's right. He did make all the animals. Did you have a fun day today?
Drew: Yeah. I want to go to school tomorrow.
