When school started in August, I realized that we were having a first and last experience. It was Dylan’s first year of preschool and Jacob’s last year before starting Kindergarten.
Jacob’s teacher is very highly praised by all the other parents I’ve talked to, so I was thrilled when he ended up in her class. And Jacob was thrilled that his two best friends from the previous year were in his class too!
Dylan was excited to be a “big boy” like Jacob and go to school. The first two days when it came time for me to leave, he was sad, and didn’t want me to go. Every day since then, he walks right in and doesn’t even glance back at me. His teachers are wonderful and absolutely adore him and he is really enjoying his time learning alongside his own friends.
For the next two years, I will be doing the hustle of picking up and dropping off at two different schools and times, wish me luck!
