First Day of Preschool!

I can't believe this day is already here. I have been thinking, praying, and stressing about the details of this day since we signed him up months ago. God is SO gracious, and it went better than I could have ever imagined! We have been talking about it A LOT, so he was really excited and ready to go. Carpool was what I was most anxious about. I just imagined them pulling him from the car kicking and screaming. However, it was just the opposite. He jumped right out, waved, and said, "Bye, Mom". Yes, MOM. Not Mommy, or Mama, MOM! A little hesitation would have done this Mama's heart good, but I am glad it went so well :). The teachers said he did GREAT, and he actually CRIED when we got to the car and wanted to go back in! Maybe I will pray a little less next time (ha ha ha). Really, I am so blessed and relieved that he LOVES it!

Pancakes and bananas on his "special" plate for breakfast.

So excited to go to school!
Already sick of taking pictures...

Liam with Daddy

Sweet boys :)

Smiles with Mommy :)

Love this Kid!
So handsome!
Yeah, they have matching shirts. I'm ok with that.
Liam with his teachers. He did GREAT!!
(As you may notice, he is wearing different pants than when I dropped him off. Liam hasn't had an accident since maybe the first week of potty training, so I was concerned when I saw him in different pants. His teachers assured me it was totally their fault. You see, Liam has an aiming problem :). They now know to clear all items within a 10 ft. radius or else it will result in the need for new clothing. Oh, the joys of little boys :))

Fire Station Visit

Our neighborhood playgroup took a trip to the Fire Station yesterday. They did the "friendly firefighter" program for the kids. This is just where the fireman dresses up in all his gear and talks to the kids about how firemen help you. I thought for sure Liam would be scared of him in all of his gear, since he is afraid of everything, but he wasn't at all! I think it is because he got to actually see the man put each piece of gear on, instead of just coming out all dressed up. He was fascinated, and we all had a great time!

Liam with the BIG truck!

Liam was pretty sure after seeing the oxygen tank and the mask, that the firemen were in fact divers. Only fueling his current obsession with divers :).
