Today was Parker's first official day of nursery school all by himself! We went for an orientation last week, but we stayed in the class while he played. Today we dropped him off for the first time ever! Crazy! Here are some photos:
Checking out his name on the apple. This morning before we went to school, April asked him about finding his name on the wall and he said, "On the apple!" I guess he remembered the apple name tag thing. Good remembering!
It was weird being at home without him! The house was so quiet! When we went to pick him up, we arrived a bit early and were able to peek into the window to see what he was doing. Everyone was sitting at a table eating a little snack (according to Parker they were "bear cookies and milk") and being really cute. Then they had circle time and were dismissed! Parker was really happy to see us and started crying, which was pretty sad to see, but he said he had a good time. He played with a big red bridge that goes with a Thomas train set (he's kind of obsessed with bridges), fed Charlie the bunny some water, ate a snack, and listened to a story (Wheels On The Bus, apparently). He also painted a school bus picture which is now hanging on our fridge. He said he's looking forward to going back, so hopefully it's a nice easy transition into going twice a week!
