Barrett started preschool (Pre-K 4yr) this week!
After being in pre-k 3yr at Trinity last year, Monday morning was a breeze!
We are so excited for this school year! Getting up early Monday morning was an adjustment for both Barrett and I, but we survived! He was so ready to get to school, and there were no tears from either of us! Next year (when he goes off to kindergarten), I am pretty sure I'll cry. I thought I would this year, but it was just so easy to drop him off, and we LOVE his teacher, so it was all just like we'd been doing it for months already.
I love our first day of school photo sessions :)
Barrett was being ornery, as usual...but he gave me some super cute pics.
Once I got them downloaded, I was shocked at how grown-up he looked.
Might be because I haven't actually used my camera and taken a picture of him all summer (thank you pregnancy).
ALL of the teachers at Barrett's school are amazing, and we would have be happy with any of them.
BUT...we were super excited to find out that he would have Mrs. Mettling!
I have known her for a long time, as she and her husband have been good friends with my parents for as long as I can remember. My mom and her husband worked together at the same school for many years. AND her oldest son, Josh, is one of Justin's best friends. When Barrett was born, Josh was not married yet, and didn't have any nieces or nephews in his family yet, so Barrett started calling him "Uncle Josh" as soon as he could talk. So, we are still working with Barrett to call his teacher Mrs. Mettling, and not "Uncle Josh's mom." haha!!
1st day of school gift for the teacher!
I was not on top of my game this year, so I went with the same thing as last year :)
THANK YOU again, Krenzer's Kreations for the cup!
Yesterday afternoon, he sat down beside me at the kitchen table and said he needed to do his homework!
This is from today! Day #2 at school! Such a happy boy!
Can't wait for Fall to get into full-swing! Football games, cooler weather, Bluegrass, class fieldtrips and parties AND just enjoying our first FALL in the new house!
