My First Day of Preschool

Story told by: Henry

Today is the big day! I get to start preschool!!

I was very excited to get to pick out my very own first-day-of-school box of cereal!

Delicious! My favorite surprise was that it turned my milk into chocolate milk!

Next up…pictures! (Many of my pictures are blurry because I won’t. stop. moving. ever.)

I recently decided I want to be a race car driver when I get older. I got in an argument with Lainey the other day over whether I’ll be able to take my children in my race car with me. She insists it’s not safe to have my kids in the car, but I am bound and determined they will ride with me.

Up until a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to be a Ninja Turtle. I was really perplexed on how exactly I was going to turn into a turtle, though. That’s when I decided a race car driver might be a little easier to achieve.

I requested a silly picture.

This face right here is a look I have on my face 80% of the time. It’s my “I’m a little bit mischievous and a good amount funny and a whole lot cute” face.

Time to put on my backpack and leave for preschool!

You can see in the background how incredibly smoky it is here today, so we didn’t stay outside for too long.

We’ve arrived!

Brody really wanted to be in the picture, too.

I get to have the same teachers that Lainey had last year, Miss Stahlecker (on the left) and Mrs. O’Loughlin (on the right). I’m so lucky!

We sure appreciate our teachers, so we made sure to have a special gift for them as they work hard to start a new school year.

I gave Mom a big hug, and then barely looked up as I started my entry task. I’m so ready for the day to start!

While I’m in preschool two mornings a week, Mommy only has Brody! ONE KID!! Brody was pretty convinced he was also starting preschool today, but when he found out he wasn’t, Mommy made it a little easier for him to accept by buying him a yummy cookie.

Mommy and Brody got to spend the morning with some sweet friends.

And Brody had fun toys to entertain him.

After a couple of hours, they came to get me! My class is very small, and only has seven kids!

Getting my blessing song from Mrs. O’Loughlin.

Mommy was sure happy to see me!!

I get to have Weston in my class, which is lots of fun!

Mrs. O’Loughlin sent Mommy some pictures of my day. Here I am painting, which was my favorite activity!

Reading “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom,” which is a favorite at our house.

And playing in the sensory table. It doesn’t get much better than trucks and rocks!

After preschool, Mommy surprised me with a yummy ice cream treat. It was a perfect way to celebrate my first day of preschool!

I can’t wait for this year!!
