First Day of Pre-School

Sam's first day of pre-school was today. Sniff, sniff. Last night I went into his room and he was sitting on the floor with his backpack. I asked him what he was doing and he said "Packing my backpack for school tomorrow." I looked in the backpack and he had 4 boxes of crayons and some Star Wars figures in there. So. Damn. Cute.

Ian and I both got teary-eyed dropping his off this morning but as soon as Sam got inside the school he turned to us with a big smile and said "Bye".

Picking him up was bittersweet. As soon as he saw us he ran to us with a look that I can only describe as "joyful". He was so happy and excited to tell us about his day. And then when he got close to us he fell and skinned his knee pretty badly. He cried all the way home but in between the tears he told us how much fun he had at school.

Ugh. It's going too fast. But I'm so proud of him.
