This year we wised up and decided that since this was Devin's first year, we would start fresh with a new school and teacher, one who happens to live right around the corner form us. Missy is my good friend and started a preschool out of her house a few years back, and over the years people have raved about how much they liked it there. She is so well priced and so close (you don't get closer than this) so it was a no brainer to go to her. Devin has talked about "Miss Missy" for weeks!
Our kids are not early risers and never have been. Morning school and church is always hard for them to get used to. Our kids could go to bed at 7:30 and wake up at 9:30 the next day, no joke! They love their sleep, and Devin is possibly the latest sleeper of them all. So even though he was really pumped about today, the morning was a little rough because he had to get up and eat breakfast and get ready on MY terms, not his. He fought me on breakfast and he fought me on brushing his teeth and going potty. He refused to wear the new orange shirt that he picked out at the store, he refused to wear his new Lightening McQueen backpack (that he picked out as well) and he almost refused to go altogether. But I coerced him enough to get him outside for pictures, and then he was more willing to go when I said he could ride his bike.
|He agreed to at least wear his backpack for pictures.|
|Now he's all smiles since he's on his bike!|
|Nope, he took the backpack right off.|
