To Infinity and Beyond...

Today was the big day!  Today, Ty became an official Preschooler!

He's in the same preschool that Zoe went to: Eastern Christian Preschool and has the same teacher as she did: Mrs. Bushman!

I have to admit, I was a little nervous about dropping Ty off at Preschool today.  He's not quite as outgoing as Zoe...he's a bit more shy.  So, I was worried that when he saw all the kids and parents, he'd get a little gun shy and cling to my leg.

Or...that was just wishful thinking.

We dropped Zoe off for her day (which starts at 8:30) and decided to play a little on the Elementary School playground.  Before too long, the Barclay bunch showed up and a joyful reunion ensued.


One of Zoe's best friends is Maeve.  They're both in Mrs. Slootmaker's class, but Maeve missed last week.  She was off vacationing (tough life, Miss Maeve).


Myles and Ty were gitty with excitement.  They held hands and made their way around the playground until it was time to head down to the Preschool.  Once there, they could barely stand still.


When Mrs. Bushman opened the door and invited the kids in, off the boys went!  Ty with his Buzz Lightyear backpack.


...sigh...

Zoe is a true friend- anyone who will dress up because it's their friend's first day is a keeper! She really helped Maeve feel welcome, thanks Zoe!

As for the little men, they must have an intuitive sense that they are really family. I am so glad that Ty had a great first day!

See you on line!

I can't believe he's already starting school. Two down, three to go. And believe me these next few years are going to fly by and then you won't know what to do with all your time!

Oh, Ty looked so cute! I'm going to miss him at CBS this year!
