Matt's First Day

Monday was Matt's first day of preschool.  He had been pretty excited about going this past weekend but then Monday morning he came up to me and said, "Daddy, I'm not excited about going to school.".  That almost started Betty's waterworks but she held it together.  Betty loaded the kids in the car and took McKenzie to school first.  By the way, did you know that there are 57 school buses at the elementary school?  Matt counts them.  Every. Single. Day.

Anyway, after dropping McKenzie off they headed to Matt's preschool.  Matt got out of the car and wanted to put his Thomas backpack on.
Betty held his hand and walked him to his class.....but she wouldn't look at him!  She said she had to hold it together at least until she left.  Matt walked in and talked to his teacher first and then went right in and started playing.  Betty did well, too, until the ride home.  I talked to her a little bit later and she was doing good and actually enjoying her time alone and getting some stuff done.

Matt had a good time at school, but we haven't heard a lot about it.  He's telling us bits and pieces about it as he's ready.  He (and Betty) did really well and he's excited about going back!

Yea,Matt!! I am SO glad you had a good first day of school~~and I'm glad Mommy made it too. I love your pictures showing off your Thomas back pack. Be sure to remember everything you are doing so you can tell me all about it on Sunday. Have a good week,and tell Bobo to have a good week too.
