We met his teacher and saw his classroom (and tested out the new playground equipment!) last Friday - and today set off for the "last" first day of preschool that he'll have...
...Complete with his new superman backpack, spiderman tee-shirt, and toy story lunch tote (recycled from last year that he refused to replace with an updated version!).
I sent a special m&m treat in his lunch because I knew he'd LOVE it. And he did. :)
& When he got back in the car at almost 1pm this afternoon he told me that he had "so much fun". And that "playing was his favorite thing", and he named his new friends, and he said "it was great momma". And i realized just how far we've come since the start of last year's school year when he refused to wear the art smock and we had a major debacle over painted hand prints. ;)
and by the way - he also told Noah when he got out of the car this morning that he "was going to go do fun things" and told me to "do good stuff with Noah". (<-- his new favorite line when leaving me to go somewhere on his own).
(noah is crying here bc i made him stand still for a photo!)
...And Noah most definitely took this message to heart, because he wasted ZERO time when we came home before completely TAKING OVER all of evan's best toys - the light up Cars cars, superheroes, and the BEST toy of all -- the new, prized batman house.
