Preschool pictures!!!

K, so now that I have 2 hours to myself, of course I'm gonna sit here. :)

He was SO awesome! SO EXCITED!!! We got a new backpack, and a new shirt! He picked out both, and was so cute! And he was so excited to take pictures!

Man I love this kid! :)

The new backpack he picked out! And then in the car was telling me everything on it. "Ook MOM, Elmo's nose! Eyes!" "Elmo i oft!" (Elmo is soft)

He is in the Orange room!

So I thought I was doing well dealing with him going to school. And then my friend who taught Parker, and is now across the hall, said, "I need to show you something!" And brought this picture out! We gave it to her at the end of the school yr. How sweet is that! So of course we took a picture of Jack holding it! I almost cried, but held it in! I just love how Jack was perfectly willing to hold up the picture, and let me take one!

And here he is showing off his name. When he went to attach it, it wasn't right side up, but without skipping a beat or having to be told, he adjusted it. Seriously... how cute is he! I love how proud he is, and how he's pointing with his crooked little finger! ;) Oh, and you can see how he hung up his backpack too, with no assistance.

Ok, I'm still nervous about sending him. Even though they are my friends, and I know he is in good hands, and he is FINE... I'm still freaking out. But I'll just keep looking at these pictures, and I'll be fine! Right?

wow- you'll have a free few hours! I'm jealous. He looks like he's feeling super proud of himself.

Those pics are so cute, and he looks so good and excited. It is nerve racking at first but you will love your couple free hours, and best of all he is in a good safe place.

He WILL be fine! And in time you will learn to love your two lonely hours, lol

As much as Jack amazes us all, I am sure that he is going to excel like you cant imagine....think of all of the blogworthy moments you'll have! =)

What a handsome little preschooler! Jealous is not the word I would use to describe how great it is that he can tell you so much about what he sees and thinks, but drink it in, Sister! ;) That picture of Parker and his teacher is precious! You always have the best teacher appreciation ideas! :) Way to go, Jack! And way to go, Mom! ;) You know, I think I'd worry more if you were glad to see him go than this. ;) You are more than fine!! :D You're AWESOME! ;)

He is so awesome. What a cutie! It's easier to send them to school when they want to go! I was nervous about Raydn going but he fit right in and loves it. It's also nice to have some free time to do whatever I want, like work out without being interrupted:) Enjoy your free time!

Oh my GOODNESS, Jen!

What a beautiful little boy!

I adore that picture -- he looks so happy and proud of himself.

He is so handsome! It is so hard to send off the baby. But you are doing something right cause he went without a peep. He was proud and safe. Good job mom!

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I remember very clearly when Luke started pre-school. His backpack was bigger than him. I took him the first day. But after that he was on the bus. I hated having him on the bus -- but our district has the greatest drivers and paras on the special ed buses.

I look forward to hearing how his day went.

He is just absolutely adorable. Sending them off is often harder on us mommas then the kids themself. He looks like a super confident litte guy. Way to go mama on raising him to be such. LOVE all the pics.

So...when are you going to have another baby?

Seriously...you have grown up so much, Jenny. Just "pull up your pants, Mary" and get on to having fun during those two hours you will have with NO children.

Laura said...

SOOOOO CUTE!!! Gosh, he's so grown up! Seems like that little baby just came to the office. (sigh) ... wow, Go Jack! :)

Sarah said...

Gosh, I was supposed to be updating MY blog the past 1/2 hour, but I got distracted looking at your blog and then clicking on all your cleft friend's links on the side bar. Thanks a lot! ;)

Can't believe Jack is in preschool already. He's soooooo cute in his new school clothes and backpack. What a little darling!!!
