The Beginning of the Beginning

All those infatuated with Amos, namely Grandparents, you might want to sit down for this. 

Amos started preschool today!

Amos on his first day of school.
 About a month ago, we took Amos to check out a preschool for next fall.  It has been all he could talk about ever since.  I was going to have a really hard time putting him off all spring and summer, so, when the preschool called to say they had an opening now, we said "YAHOO!"

Eric came home from work for lunch today to see Amos off.  We gave him his new backpack, and he was so thrilled.  It's a good thing I bought him a backpack the day we first checked out the school (maybe I was going to have a hard time putting myself off all spring and summer too).

Maggie wasn't too sad about not getting to go to school, but she really wanted a backpack too.  She managed to pull one out of the closet and insisted on wearing it around just like Amos.

I have just a few minutes left before I need to go pick up Amos...I can't wait to see what he has to say about today!

Wow. Amos is growing up! I looked at your well-child chats and Audrey is still so tiny. I think my kid is going to come out that big. And, last of all, way to 'stroll'. When you get another child you can always put one of your kids in the carry basket underneath.
