School Days

School has started for our now four-year old! Tre started his Pre-K on Wednesday and has really enjoyed his first couple days so far!

Wednesday was just a short hour-long day where Tre got to meet his teacher and fellow classmates. Mrs. Holtson is his teacher's name, and apparently she's a favorite of all the Pre-K teachers! At the parents' meeting Tuesday night she explained some of the class procedures: as soon as Tre gets to class he gets to choose where to spend his free-play time and what kind of drink he'll get at snack time. He really likes this and was telling me on Wednesday how he was gonna get to play space guys on Thursday! (apparently that's one of the free-play stations)

On Thursday his table was the helper table and Tre got to turn off the light in the classroom and close the door behind them. Tre loves helping... and so this made his first day really special! And on Friday it was Tre's turn to take the snack bucket in; the children each have a turn to provide snacks for the class, and Tre especially loves this part of going to school! He's still learning his classmates names, for now we only know Gracie because she was in his class last year. But I know as he spends more time with them daily he'll open up more and learn more names.

As Tre has been at school Colin and Emma have been hanging at home with me. Emma is still discovering rolling over and entertaining herself with toys, so Colin and I have been able to really spend some time together. We play blocks, puzzles, and roll/throw a ball around. I think he really enjoys having all my attention. I was kinda nervous about him being upset with Tre & TJ leaving without him, but luckily the transition has gone well. He starts school on Tuesday, so hopefully that will all go well too!!

New and exciting stuff is coming the next couple of weeks: Tre has his four-year old Dr. check-up, and his soccer stuff should start-up soon. I'll be sure to keep you all updated!
