Bitter Sweet Moment

Dane's 1st day of preschool was today. Many thanks to my dad for agreeing to take Dane to and from preschool on Tues and Thursdays since I'll be at work. I REALLY appreciate it and I know Dane thinks it's pretty special for him take the time to do it.

On the way over to my mom's this morning Dane said "Mom, Can you teach me how to spell my name again so I can tell my teacher." I got a big kick out of that, how sweet is he?! So all the way we practiced saying D, A, N, E.

I think it went pretty well. I was able to meet them over there and take some pictures but not able to stay for the whole time. He didn't cry and either did I so I'm gonna consider it a successful first day.

I snapped the above picture before walking in and then Dane said "Hey mom, I want you to take my picture over here too!" I think he was pretty excited.

Then he wanted his picture taken drinking out of the water fountain :)

One of his teachers, Miss Cande showing Dane the train table.

Then a few other boys join in.

My dad later told me that while the other boys were quite content to just sit there and play with the trains on the track Dane wanted to take the train track apart and reconfigure it. Yeah, That's pretty typical of him.

He is his father's son.


  1. Looks like a nice class room!
    Seeing these photos takes me back to Taylor's first day last year. I was such a nervous wreck! How have our babies grown up already?!?
    Glad he had a good first day :)

  2. I don't know Jen but it happened way to fast!
