First Day of Preschool!

Ah, I can't even believe I am typing the words "first day of preschool" in association with my baby. Wasn't he just born like 6 months ago?! The time has come and we couldn't be more thrilled with his new school, but it's still a little tough for this momma :) We have been talking SO much about school and he has been so excited. We went to the grocery store Monday afternoon and picked up his requested breakfast (2 eggies, saugit (sausage), cinnamon rolls, and oranges.). Sounded good to me! I woke up before everyone Tuesday morning and got everything started (how I wish, wish, wish I could do that every morning) while my boys were still snoozing away. Then it was off to wake up the little man and get our day started! 
We went to a preschool play date last Thursday so it was fun talking at breakfast about his friends and who he would see again at his first day. I also told him we were going to take some pictures like Momma and Uncle Davey did before their first day of school every year - with the dreaded paper bag, haha! He was actually SO excited about it and was cheesing it up for the camera. 
He wanted his first picture taken with Frankie Doggie - totally happy to oblige :) Doesn't he look cute in his first day of school outfit? I have seriously had it out and ironed for like two weeks :) He had on his little tennis shoes and was just looking too sweet for words!

There he is, my sweet, sweet little boy - all ready for the adventures of a new school, new friends, new teachers - so many exciting things await my sweet Connor!

He wanted a picture with the doggies - the smile was too cute not to share, I loved that he was waving his sign in the air so fast, haha!
He was getting tired of the pictures by the time I made him stand on the front steps at school - he would only sit and I was going to take what I could get! He loved his little school bag, it is getting his name and a little car on it this afternoon. I was not about to pay $7 for monogramming when I can do it myself, haha!

Meeting Dottie the fish and checking out the classroom. We literally had to drag him out of there to go outside, which is HUGE because he loves playing outside. We met lots and lots of really nice friends, teachers and parents. We are so excited to be a part of the ECNS family.
They have cozy coupes, need we say more?! The playground is so fun and since it's in an older part of town there are lots of big trees with great shade and coverage. We are just so excited, nervous, proud and happy for our sweet boy and this big milestone. We know he is going to LOVE school and I can't wait to hear all about his adventures! I asked him as I was putting him to bed last night (he was so tired he was sound asleep at 7:15)! what his favorite part of the day was: seeing his friends, playing outside and watching Dottie the fish. TOO SWEET!
