Henry's First Day of 4 Year Old Preschool!

It's official.  Henry is a 4 Year Old Preschooler.  

He's the big man on campus!

Now, let me start by saying that this year's "first day of school experience" was dramatically different from last year.  

I mean night and day, people!

As you can see, Eliza thinks she should go to school, too.  Not yet, sweet girl!

Last year involved lots of crying...by him...and by me...  *sigh*

...Not this year!

This year, this boy wants to go to school.  He's excited and he's curious, not to mention the fact that he's a complete goof-ball!

We took it easy this past summer and I think it was the best thing I could've ever done for him.  I think he needed a "kid break" and if that entailed more time and snuggles with him, then I was game!

I just can't believe we're to this point.  I can't believe he's already four.  I can't believe he's actually excited and happy and willing to go to school or as Henry would say, "Ffffffooool."  It makes my heart happy.  It makes my heart happy for Henry. :)  

We already miss him, yet he's only had a handful of school days...

*Shoes yet to be tied*  Ha! ;)

...but he's ready.

(Me?  Not so much, but that's another blog post.  One which will involve a guaranteed ugly cry.  #kiddingnotkidding)

Watch out world!  

Henry's a 4 Year Preschooler!

  1. Aw yay, Henry!! What a brave boy! I know that the fact that he's excited about it at least made it a smidge easier for you to let him go. It's always the WORST when your baby is crying and doesn't want to go either. I bet he'll have a FANTASTIC year!!

    I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

  2. He is TOO cute! I swear, he's the boy version of Lily! Her teacher just informed me today that she adds a lot of entertainment to their morning! I hope Henry has a great school year!

  3. Such sweet pictures of your boy! It's so nice when they are excited to go to school! Brayden was a mess for the first few months of 3 year preschool but 4 year was a whole different ball game. I hope he has a great year!!
