The Twins Return to Preschool

Last week the twins had their first day of preschool.  They will be attending Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week, from 9-12.  They were so excited to start back in the 3s classroom this year.
Last year they cried during drop off for the first month or so, but this year there were no tears.  They were so excited after the end of their first day, and jabbered about all the fun they had the whole drive home.  Last year they couldn't converse so much.  It's amazing how much they grow from year to year. 

They have a really cool new classroom.  It has all these small rooms off the main room, and each cubby room has a theme to it.  There's a transportation room, a room with kitchen supplies, a reading room, etc.  I know they're going to have so much fun this year.  And I'll enjoy having free time again to get my runs in, especially now that it's too dark in the early mornings!

What a fun time for them! All the kids are back to school around here now as well. It doesn't seem possible that it is fall again! OK so technically it is still summer, but it certainly feels like fall up here :-)

A good pre-school really helps them get a head start on entering school. They pick up a lot of social skills as well as reading. You will eventually get used to the quiet though.

I sure do bet it is so awesome to have a few minutes to your self. I remember the feeling when I got all for children off to school at the same time. I was so lost. Thats when I decided to go back into teaching. I hope you have a great day.

Sandy said...

They are just adorable. I am sure you will take full advantage of the extra time you will have. It won't be long before they are in school full time...you won't know what to do with yourself then...lol

That's great they love school. My boys are the same way.

They have each other, which makes them feel a little more secure I'm sure. My boys have gone to preschool with their cousins that are the same ages as they are.

I am glad they are having an awesome experience at the start. Ya for some free time for you, too! Win Win!

Valerie said...

What a couple of cutie pies!! The ironic thing about kids is that the older they are on the first day of school, the less they cry but the more the parents do:) I can't believe Amy only has this year and then next and then she's college bound. I'll need tons of kleenex!

SweetMarie said...

So glad there was no tears! It's great that you will have some time for you. My son loved preschool, probably because he's an only child and loved socializing. :) Adorable picture!
