Sheepies Last Year of Preschool

Friday Sheepie started his first day of Preschool. This will be his last year attending, and so he was more than excited to get back to school. Since this is his third year attending the school, our family has gotten to know some of his teachers and the other families pretty well; it's always fun to meet back up with them and see how they've grown and changed over the summer....

Nothing says cool like Finding Nemo Sunglasses at 7:30 in the morning.... Yeah!

This is Sheepie with his new teacher/friend, Alex. He's helping put on Sheepies name tag. I love that it's only taken me three years practically to learn why they always put them on the back of their shirts. The answer: so that when the kids are bent down playing, they can still see who is who. Smart thinking!

So far as I can tell, he's off to a bang up year, and is counting the days until he goes back. I have to admit that I will be a little sad that I'm not going to be there to pick him up everyday, and see the fresh out of school excitement on his face. Both he and FP get out of school at the same time, and there is no one who can car pool with us from FPs school, which doesn't have buses, since it's a transfer only school... where as many of my friends are able to bring Sheepie home with them; so sadly, he is the one who will not be getting mommy to pick him up. Hopefully, by the time he gets home each day, he will still want to share a little window into his special world with me.

Gosh, I can't believe how big he's getting!

That IS brilliant, the name-tag-on-the-back-thing.

And, knowing Sheepie, he'll be more than thrilled to share with you as soon as he gets to see you. (And if he start some of that pre-pre-teen ennui, you'll have a friend your age who can give you the scoop. ^_^ (It's not PERFECT, but it's something!)
