GW Starts School

My (not so) little man officially began pre-kindergarten today.  Ever since he had his interview last spring, he's been asking and asking and asking to go to school and I think it might have shocked him a bit when we actually said "yes, today you can go!"  So dawning new shoes (size 2!!), a plain "Just GW" shirt and his beloved dinosaur backpack, he raced through breakfast and marched to the car with absolutely zero trepidation. 

Course, just because he isn't nervous, that doesn't mean that us parents are in the same boat.  But in attempts to ease nerves for all concerned, the school invited parents to attend the first day with their kids today and, in probably the most adorable move ever, HB asked if he could be the one to take GW.  Obviously I was a bit sad to miss seeing the little guy in action for myself, but from all reports it sounds like he did a marvelous job.  On the playground he played on the bikes and with the trucks in the dirt; inside he made a bird puzzle and, during circle time, he even introduced the little girl sitting next to him because she was too shy to say her own name... awwwwwwwww!

Of course he's commented several times since he's come home about the pretty long haired brunettes in his class and their resemblance to certain princesses he admires (Kate Middleton and AS - you know who you are), but at almost 4 years old I've come to grips with the fact that this kid has excellent taste in women and I'm going to have to keep him incredibly busy with sports.  In fact, I've signed him up for piano lessons and soccer lessons already...

Let the age of school children begin! Congratulations GW, I'm so proud of you!
