Here's Ian on his first day of pre-K. He is going to a nearby Baptist church's pre-k program and so far he is really liking it. His teacher is very nice and it sounds like he's already made friends with the kids in his class. No surprise there. Ian might be the friendliest kid there is. His schedule is two days a week from 9:15-2:30, which I love. I wouldn't have minded a bit if we got him into a program that was 3 days a week, but this one was the right for for us. I will admit that I am jealous of the moms I know from back in California who all had babies around the same time I had Ian and they are starting their kids in kindergarten. The birthday cut-off here for school is September 1 so his October birthday means he won't start kindergarten till next year. And while a part of me wishes he was in school across the street already, I know that this year of pre-K is going to be a really good transition from preschool last year (2 days/week for 3 hours) to kindergarten next year (5 days/week for 7 hours). One of his comments about school so far is that it's kind of long. Yeah, good thing he's got a year to get used to it.
