The First Day

Today was Cole's first day of Pre-K. I have dreaded this day for four years because it would mean that my baby wasn't a baby anymore. I think I was more nervous than he was. He slept like a baby last night while I watched every hour roll by. For the first time in several weeks, he didn't fuss to get up and get ready...he was EXCITED that the day to start big school had arrived. Ofcourse, the mommy in me wanted ten thousand pictures, but he informed me only a few!

He held my hand tight as we walked into the Pre-K building...a little nervous at the new place he was entering. Mrs. Welch was at the door of Room 35 to greet us and welcome Cole to a fun year of Pre-K! His room is very colorful and cute and full of lots of fun things to do. I tried to get a picture with his teacher, but that was not gonna happen! We said our goodbyes and the door to Room 35 closed. I have to admit I was very emotional because here I was, handing over my baby. But, the smile that greeted me today when he got off the bus at my school assured me he was in wonderful hands! After hearing all about the fun things he did today at "big school", we headed down to McDonald's for our traditional first day of school dinner.
