First Day of School 2008

The boys were wildly excited when they woke up Thursday. It was their first day of school! Hooray!

They're headed back for another year at the same preschool as last year, with the same teachers, and some of the same kids! They'll go every Monday through Thursday from 8:30 to 11:15am.

Xavier was literally screaming with happiness when I told him that he was going to school.

Xavier always leans into Ben when he sits beside him, how cute is that?!

Ben said, "I want to stand by a tree like last year and take my picture!" What a memory that kid has! He got to pick the tree. This was his second pick. The first one was in our neighbor's yard. I told him to pick again. hehe

The morning went well. Surprisingly easy to get back into the swing of things. Mainly because we've still been going here and there to summer activities all along. Plus, school starts and ends 30 minute than last year, so that's a bonus!

And here they are, at their "table activity" upon first arrival. I was sooo happy to see that they both made the transition to starting the school day without any protest. It was like the summer had never occurred, and they just had come back from over the weekend. Fantastic way to start off the year!

Very cool! Hannah starts school next Thursday, we are both really excited. Do you take Xavier's chair to school everyday or do they have one too?

Very observant about Xavier's chair, Melissa! I'm happy to report that they have a chair very similar to the one we have here at home (a different "brand") so I don't have to haul Xavier's in. We also keep his wheelchair there, but its still at home now, waiting to be fitted with a new seat since he grew so much over the summer!

And Hannah, have fun on Thursday! What a big kid she is now! I was looking at a picture I have of your girls on my locker at work the other day, from when Olivia was about 2 months old...and Hannah has matured SO much in the last year!
