preschool is back in session

Well, that's it, summer has officially concluded for us! Today was Charlie's first day back at preschool.  Only for an hour and with half the class, just long enough for me to squeeze in a cup of tea and a little uninterrupted Mama chit-chat  But by next week they will be up to two and half hours three mornings a week.  I honestly think he is ready for more, but I'm not.  I savor our one on one time together.  It is probably {in my opinion} the biggest advantage to having children spaced 6 years apart.  They each get a lot of undivided Mama attention in their younger years.  Aw, who am I kidding, he'd rather be playing with his big brother than hanging out with me, but I love it.  We went out together for lunch today and as I was paying the pill he said, "okay, come on girl, let's go". Cracked me up.  He was thrilled to be going back to his sweet school today and I hope he has as wonderful a year this year as he did last. Charlie makes me and most other people around him pretty happy {most of the time.  he's not perfect!}, I pray that never changes!  I'll miss his irresistible little face for those few hours he's away each week, but I'm quite certain he won't be missing me, at least not too much! xo

  1. Our little started and we were so worried about him leaving his mama but he loves it! !! Begs to go! ! Have a great day

  2. Love those faces in the first row of photos! What a cutie.

  3. He is adorable!!! I would love to meet the little guy. My 3 year old loves school too - but mommy sure does miss him. Enjoy your "me time". I've been following your kitchen progress as well - hope it's running smooth & I can't wait to see the end results.

  4. I am cracking up at those sweet pictures! He doesn't hold anything back does he?! Enjoy those days of "little-ness"...they will rush right past. Glad he loves school. To me that is a major accomplishment!
