The FIRST First Day of School

Milo had his first day of Pre-K this past week! My December baby missed the cut off for the 4 year old class by about a week so he had to start with the 3 year old.  Doug insists this is actually going to be awesome for him later on when he's the first of his friends to learn to drive. (But I can't think about him driving right now! He's big enough as it is!)

Rocket Backpack
(Seriously, he loves this thing.  I sometimes think its his favorite thing about school!)

"Ok, enough making me stand in the bright sun and taking a million pictures."

All ready with his name tag to go inside!

He didn't cry when it was time to go in, in fact he didn't even look back at me just took off when she opened the door! He was so excited to start school and he loves it. He did burst into tears when we picked him up the first day, but he was just overtired and upset that 1, he got a hand stamp, which made his hand dirty, and 2, he couldn't stay and play with the toys for longer! His teacher told us he was fine the whole time though, and on the second day he came home with a certificate for having an awesome day listening and following all the rules, AND he had the dreaded hand stamp and didn't even mind it this time!  

On the nights before school when I remind him at bedtime that he has school tomorrow so he needs to get a good sleep he says "Yep, I gotta get lots of energy for school tomorrow!" I have no idea where he learned that sleep give you energy, but it kills me with the cuteness every time!
