First Day of Preschool 2011

So... I have broken my personal blogging fast!  I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since I've posted any personal entries.  That includes missing Brennan's 8 month AND 9 month pictures.  Those pictures have not only been neglected from being posted, but taken, as well.  Bad Mommy!

That being said, I was bound and determined not to miss this special day for Ashton.  So, I was able to snap a few pictures before we left this morning.  He has been talking about going to school for a while now and today is the day!  He finally made it!  Ashton and I packed his lunch last night and he was just so giddy.  Ha, a giddy school boy ;)!  All decked out in his Toy Story backpack, Toy Story lunch box (from Nana and Big G) and Toy Story shirt for his first day.  Not to mention the Toy Story fruit snacks we packed in his lunch!  This kid loves...you guessed it...Toy Story!

I prayed that we would make it on time (for those of you who know me well, you know this is hard for me!) and that Ashton would do well at drop off.  Man was that prayer answered!  We arrived 5 minutes early (WEEE!) and Ashton ran right in, like it was our own home.  I barely had a chance to kiss him goodbye and tell him to have a good day, but I did get a few of him coloring.  I was amazed... and a little hurt, but not that much!  I'm ecstatic that he had such a great experience for his first day.

At pick up, he was waiting at the door for me and ran down the sidewalk, shouting, "Mommy!" with a big smile.  It made my day.  After a big hug and kiss, he told me that he learned so much at school; about circles and the number 1 and all of the animals on the farm.  I was impressed to say the least.  Ashton was all smiles, so I took the last one in the car, since I hardly had a chance to get him running toward me (bummer)!

I'm so happy for Ashton and can't wait to hear what he will learn in the future!  Love you, my smart, sweet, boy!

So sweet! Can't wait to see him again and let him tell me all about it. There is nothing like knowing your kid loves school. Special special...
