When we moved, we left Jacob at his old preschool because we didn’t want to change schools on top of a new baby, new neighborhood and a new house. So when it got close to the end of the last school year, I started researching the preschools in this area and learned that the school he was at had fantastic hours and a more of a year round program, meaning they didn’t close for Spring Break or summer, etc…we decided to keep him at his old preschool through the summer program and then start him at his new preschool closer to home in the fall. So before I share his first day of school pictures (which are now a few months old), here are the ones he had taken last spring at his old preschool. And he looked so darn cute in all of them, that I couldn’t just settle on one photo and ended up getting all three…
When it came time to start his new school, it didn’t really seem to faze him. The 3 year old class is a little more work than 2 year old preschool, and this is my kid who likes to have a job and something to do, so he jumped right into it. And the fact that one of his good buddies is in his class helped too I’m sure. I barely get a kiss good bye when I drop him off and he is always excited to run around with his buddy while the moms chat for a few minutes when I pick him up. So it is safe to say that he is enjoying it!
Here’s our little cheeseball ready for his first day of 3 year old preschool.
And the tractor backpack in his favorite color green from grandma and grandpa was the icing on the cake.
I know I’ve been kind of sporadic here lately and I don’t like that. It boils down to the fact that I have no time during the day to work on this blog and by the time the boys are in bed for the night, I am too tired and just want to sit and talk to my husband or watch a TV show or scroll through my Facebook feed or simply just sit and stare at nothing and enjoy the quiet. I love this blog though and don’t plan on stopping. It is my favorite way to capture the story of our lives, especially since I haven’t touched Jacob’s baby book since he turned 2 and I did buy one for Dylan…but that’s as far as I’ve gotten. I’ve been feeling the urge to start picking up my camera again every once in a while. So one day after dropping off Jacob at preschool, I didn’t really have any urgent errands to take care of and rather than browsing the aisles of Target and spending $200 on stuff I didn’t know I needed, I decided to do something fun with Dylan. So we went to feed the ducks. Before we left the house, at the last minute I ran back in to grab my camera and I am so glad I did.
According to Dylan though…we were there to feed him and just look at the ducks.
He would come get a slice of bread from me and walk back to the ducks and stand there and eat the bread.
Then turn around and walk back to get more
I showed him how to break up the bread and throw it to the ducks, and he looked at me and smiled, and even laughed, he thought it was funny.
And he kept on eating the bread, while I threw some pieces out to the ducks in between pictures.
When Dylan’s tummy was full, we walked over to the playground where he did about 50+ laps up the stairs and down the slide.
I love this little goofball
It was a fun date with my littlest man.
Apparently the last post I did never sent out a email notification that I published a new post. So I went online to try and find out why and I guess due to an update it was messing up the system. I haven’t had time to research how to fix it, but there was recently another update so I am hoping there is resolution to the problem in this update. So this is just a test post to see if the email notifications are working again…
