Van started preschool two weeks ago and as you can see, he was super excited about it. I was preparing for the worst, but it never came. He walked right into the classroom, hung up his bag, grabbed his name tag and said, "You'll come pick me up later, Mom." And that was that. I held back the tears as I drove out of the parking lot. I couldn't have been more proud of him.

His teachers are Ms. 'Pickle' and Ms. Coreen and they are awesome. There are about sixteen kids in his class and he has already started referring to some of them at home, particularly a girl named Ruth. His first assignment was to fill out his 'spotlight' for the bulletin board and here are some of his answers . . .

I am special because: I go to school!
My favorite color is: green.
I like to: color.
My favorite food is: 'mac-e-roni' & cheese.
When I grow up: I will be a missionary!

He's such a great kid! And you were very brave to hold back the tears until you were in your car. :)
