We decided to put Aiden in pre-school this year when he was two and a half. While that is early for pre-school, we wanted him to get comfortable with other trusted adults (he was VERY dependent on me), for him to grow socially and of course learn! I also loved the idea of having some one-on-one time with Audrey since they are so close in age. We are SO glad we sent him this year, he has grown so much in so many ways. A perfect example...at his Christmas program, he didn't participate. He spent the time on my lap, crying. Well, at his program yesterday - in front of A LOT of camera holding parents - he sang and danced his little heart out. I felt like I was going to burst with pride.
It was a special day to celebrate our big boy and the fact that he stuck with something that was very hard for him at first, but he ended up loving it. There's a life lesson in there somewhere ;). He will go back next year for the three year old class and we will likely send Audrey too. The school is wonderful, I have been so impressed.
Enough words, time for some adorable pictures. And stay tuned for next week for our Summer Bucket List...Aiden has some specific requests this year ;).
|Looking so big!|
|A little unsure at first.|
|But then he let loose!|
|Mommy, I look like daddy in my shirt! :)|
|He had a very special bond with Mrs. Dietz from day one. She is retiring this year, so she was a little emotional :).|
|"Art Express" - his favorite. I wonder why ;).|
|Skyline lunch to celebrate.|
|And ended the day with his favorite activity.|
