Preschool update

Soren napped for over an hour at school today, which is almost unbelievable to me. He also ate all his food again. He has been in an extremely good mood since he got home...I guess being entertained nonstop by 9 other people (7 kids, 2 teachers) agrees with him. I *know* it agrees with me. When he first saw me, he held out his arms to be picked Miss Brooke! And then he kissed her on the cheek, spontaneously! He clearly likes his new peeps.

Here is his first art project. I am pretty sure it was better than all the other kids' sheep. JK. Not really.

Soren started preschool yesterday—we went for an hour, more or less during recess. Today we went for art, music, and lunch; Soren had sketti, garlic bread, and Italian salad in case you were wondering.

There are a couple of really cute kids in the one-year-old room but they are moving into the next age group next week, so I think Soren might be the cutest in his grade for a while.

Here are some pictures of his acclimation period yesterday. Tomorrow I am going to drop him off and leave him for a few hours! He did better today than yesterday, so hopefully he'll only scream his head off for like 10 or 15 minutes tomorrow. I am sure my presence is hindering him from really doing his thing, though.

Also, it's a really good thing we didn't name Soren something traditional like Michael because he would not have made a good addition to his group. The names of his classmates are Liam, Emerson, Grayson, Gael, Valeria, Jackson, Paolo, and Beckett. CUTE!

First glimpse of the gigantic awesome playground!

A really big bug showed up, which was a super hit with all the boys. Later some of them tried to beat it with a stick! SO bad. Soren was NOT part of that.

Potential girlfriend material!?

Water break. This teacher I am pretty sure deserves a raise. I guess Tommy and I should start saving up for her Christmas bonus right away.

Soren's first experience on a sliding board.

Apparently he needs to learn some slide etiquette.

They have to wash their hands before AND after every activity. Preschool wastes a lot of water!

Pool party at Nanny's!

Soren got to spend a couple of days this week with his BFF Julian. They had a pool party today!
