First Day of School

Yesterday was AJ's first day of school this year. Earlier this year, in January, I called the preschool and asked if they had any openings now that he was four. They did and he started school in Feb and right off the bat had several snow days. But yesterday was his first "first day of school." He was very excited. We went to Wal-Mart to get some things that he needed for the classroom and he had a frosty for a treat.
When it was time to take him to school JM really wanted to go too so I loaded him up as well. JM insisted on carrying the box of tissues, which was actually 4 small boxes wrapped together. At school, JM didn't want to leave. One little girl was crying, and JM was as well. Only his plea was , " I want to be four too, Mommy!" It was very sad. He said goodbye to AJ and we left.
When AJ came home from school JM just kept patting his arm and saying his name over and over. I think the time apart will be WONDERFUL for them. Here they are with Daddy, ready to leave.

I'm sure he loved it! Maybe JM will appreciate his older brother a bit more now. ;)
