1st Day of Preschool

On Monday July 16, 2012 we took Dylan to preschool for the first time.  It started off with me carrying him into the office and him seeing Annie, the school Director, and him smiling and reaching his arms out to her.  I knew instantly that he was in good hands.  She scooped him up and off we went into the "little" classroom where all the kiddos with IEP's start off their day with a 30 minute lesson with the special education teacher, Erica.  Then they joined the rest of the kids in the "big" classroom for circle time, music and snack.  Then it's off to the playground for outside fun where Dylan played in the sandbox, rode in the wagon with a friend and drove the school bus - I was told that he was a very good driver.  :)  All of the teachers loved Dylan so much and said that he had a wonderful first day.  When I picked him up three hours later he was all smiles and so happy to see me.  He was "talking" very loudly and smiling and kicking his legs - telling me all about his day.  I think this is going to be a wonderful school for him and can't wait to see what this year brings. 

The boys getting ready to leave for school.  Dylan was very excited to have his backpack on and Luke was excited we were going "bye-bye." 

These next pictures were photos that were taken by Leila Jones a few months ago.  She was so captivated by Dylan's story she asked if she could use him as a model for her website - and because Lukey is so cute he was also a little model.  Here are some of my faves. :)


  1. I just want to scoop Dylan up and bring him home with me! He's so cute. All your kids are. Sounds like it was a great start to the school experience for him.

  2. I am so happy that both you and Dylan loved school! That has to be such a great feeling! He looks so old and like such a big kid.

    The photos are amazing. You have such handsome boys. I love the hats! Too cute!
