First Day - Colton

Today is Colton's first day of pre-school. Oh my goodness, he is growing up so fast. We picked up his new eyeglasses last night, and I swear, he grew up 5 years in 5 minutes. He looks so smart and big!

We dropped Chance off at his school, stopped in at the office for a couple of errands, and then headed out to Colton's school. Since it was the first day, Matt and I took time off to take him in - usually Tina will deliver him and pick him up. He was concerned for Tina today, because for the first time in a long, long time, she wasn't going to have any kids in the morning hours. "You will get to come pick me up, though. That will make you happy, won't it?"

One of the teachers at the school is Julie, who is Colton's former daycare gal. He was with her from 4 months old until he was 2 - that's when she decided to start teaching pre-school. So, it was a big deal for him to see Julie, and he's been so excited that she will be one of his teachers. He's been concerned over the last few weeks about what he was supposed to call her - could he still call her Julie, or would it have to be Mrs. or something? It turns out, they call her Miss Julie at preschool, so I'm sure he can get used to that!

His other teachers, Pam, Roz, and Claudia, are all teachers and helpers from our church, so he had lots of familiar faces this morning, and it was hugs all around. They all commented on how great his glasses looked, and how grown up he looked in his school clothes!

He began playing at a table with Julie, and aside from a brief break to hug us goodbye, hit the ground running and didn't look back. What a little trooper.

Colton, I am so proud of you. You are getting to be such a big boy! I can't wait to hear all about your day when I pick you up!
