His first year of school!

You may remember my dilemma last September about whether or not I should send AJ to the head start program. I thought it would be great for him to have a little pre-school experience but with head start it's a pretty big commitment. The classes are Tuesday to Friday boarding the bus every morning at 8:20 and arriving back home at 12:50, which for a three year old is a long time!

At first he didn't like getting up and having to leave but as time went by he started to love it more and more. Until the last 3 months, he was sad to get on the bus each day and say good-bye but once he was at school he was happier than a pig in mud. He loves his teacher and most of his class mates, especially cute little Emma. I guess they are inseparable at school!

They eat Breakfast and Lunch which is how AJ is covered that one of his new favorite meals is tuna casserole, SICK! Noodles, cream of chicken soup, and tuna. He has asked if I can make it but I keep saying I don't know how because I just can't do it especially pregnant. He always tells me how much he like story time and playing outside, which they do EVERYDAY, even in the rain.

Here's our little man on his first day off school and our unplanned family picture that hung on the wall in their class room all year! Maybe we should have spruced up a bit???? ha ha ha.

Every two months his teacher would come over for an at home to talk about how he is doing. He is starting to read already, can spell at least 10 words, plays well with others, is always polite, and most importantly he was the only one in the whole class who can hit a baseball while being pitched to and run the correct direction around the bases, OH YEAH! lol, I'm really proud of him and all that he has accomplished this year, he is seriously growing up way to fast!

Here we are at the school on his last day with one of his best friends tacwan, and one with Miles

He made me that sweet pasta necklace and received a cute little certificate. I just love him so much and feel so blessed to be his Mom, congratulations on a great school year Age!.
