Caden goes to school...er Pre-school!

After a slew of events we ended up putting Caden into preschool at our local school. I was a little nervous, yet excited for Caden to go to a “real” school. Last week was his first few days of class.


I tried to get a few shots of Caden on his first day. Caden, true to form, did not want to have anything to do with it. Hopefully one day I will have pictures of him smiling on the first day of school! He really did have a good time, and was happy to be there despite what it appears in the pictures.

After a couple of days of going he informed me that he wasn’t going to school. He went on to tell me that it was “PRE-SCHOOL” not “SCHOOL, MOM!” It is funny to hear his stories each day when I pick him up. He always wants to walk to school, and we have done it a few times, but it is too dang hot here! I can't wait until it cools down!

He has had a few "incidents" at school that have made me chuckle. The other day "Miss Tiffany" had to take him out of the class for a few minutes because he started crying when Mrs. Johnston wanted them to do something. Yes, my child is strong willed, and he likes to think that everything he does has to be his idea. He got over it, and was able to have fun that day. He has to figure out that he can't always control the world!

Then yesterday he refused to stand and say the pledge! What a silly kid! He really is a good boy, but he has quite the stubborn streak in him! When he gets older I know his strong will can be a good thing, but man, it drives me crazy sometimes!

Can you believe his birthday is tomorrow!?! He will be 4! He really isn’t my baby anymore! Excuse me while I go shed a tear!

Emily (all my kids did) goes to the "school's" pre-school. I love that because when she goes to kindergarten, it won't be a "new" place.

I'm glad your son is enjoying school. They become so independent, don't they?

Emily, too, will be four next month. Just doesn't seem possible. They grow so fast.

What a little cutie. Too bad our kids aren't in the same class; my daughter would be all over him. :-)

Christine said...

That is my favorite part of the day. Listening to all their adventures at school.

Caden's going to be 4. Wow! They grow up so fast. He's getting to be a big boy now.

Fun pictures ... he is very handsome!

Sometimes I find myself wishing these little ones wouldn't grow up quite so fast.

Okay - so like a month ago I got this email with a link to this cute kiddo saying the prayer - after looking at your pics and then looking at the video again - I got smart and realized it was your Caden!! Cracked me up! That email has been sent everywhere!!!

BTW - I'm so glad I got to talk with ya the other night! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help out with the reunion.

HotMama said...

It's so hard to see them go off to school, and yet so fabulous when they're gone! However, I still love days when there is no preschool and you can just cuddle and play all day! He's sure a cutie!

These are great pictures! Caden looks quite "stylin'" in his shades. :)

Hope he's enjoying preschool thus far.
