First Day of Preschool

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Let's pretend it's September! Lincoln started preschool way back then, not now, as evidenced by the wearing of shorts, no coat, and last, but certainly not least, the date written on the chalkboard. The picture on the left was on his first day of Mother's Day Out last year, and obviously, the one on the right is him this year. As you can see, he is now a teenager. Seriously, that is a huge change, is it not??

Lincoln LOVES his preschool. L-O-V-E-S it (and so do I!). He asks every day if it is a school day (he only goes 3 days a week), and for awhile he was nearly in tears when we picked him up after school (a good problem to have, I suppose). He attends a play-based parent coop, so there is no formal academic component (which I love), and Lucas or I get to help out in the classroom once or twice a month (which Lincoln loves). They can go outside in any weather (and have...rain and snow just mean bring your boots!). A few weeks ago they were grinding whole grains into flour and mixing up "pies" (water and flour) with their freshly ground flour with the hose outside. There is also a fair amount of ghost and zombie chase, but I suppose that comes with the territory in a class of 6 boys and 1 girl.

Anyway, I just wanted to make sure I got these pictures posted and mainly wrote the above text as filler space. So there you go :)

  1. yay for no academics! They need to play at this age! And, yes, he IS a teenager here. How amazingly fast they grow... And I LOVE that they go outside, rain or shine. It is amazing how much a few minutes of exercise makes on the brain and the body (this coming from a teacher who despises "in" days... I also loves that he comes to tears when he leaves (this coming, again, from a teacher who hopes she makes a significant impact on her students!) :)

  2. I agree with Aunt Lindsay. Kids should be playing at this age instead of studying.
