The Big Class

We survived week #1 of our baby being in the Big Class (Preschool). I'd actually even venture to say that not only did we survive, we totally rocked it. Take this morning for example:

Mommy: Ash, are you ready? We need to leave soon.
Ash: (Carrying his shoes to me) Mommy help put shoes on.
Mommy: OK, should we both put our shoes on and go to the park and just play outside together all day? (Only half jokingly...)
Ash: Mommy no! Me go to big class you go working!

So, apparently there will be no Ash/Mommy hooky days in the near future. Bummer. But it did melt my heart just a little bit to hear the excitement in his voice about going to school to be in the big class. That same excitement about going to school will last throughout his childhood, right?

I love it! You can see the excitement in his twinkly little eyes! I have a feeling that he will be one of those kids that will love learning all his life and will always be happy to go to school!
