I spent a lot of time thinking about preschool for Rhett and trying to justify it. After all, he just turned 3, he has years of school ahead of him, it's expensive, etc. But I knew preschool would be so good for Rhett--he is smart and curious and social and loves adults in authority who aren't his parents. He needed preschool. I didn't want to spend $1,000 or drive all over town, but we lucked out with the cutest church preschool 2 minutes from our house with great teachers and small class sizes. I was sold!
I even got to take Rhett school supplies shopping, which was a dream come true for me. To no surprise, he loved it--it's in his genes.
We drive past the school almost every day, and Rhett has been announcing it as his school for months. After the open house last week, he asked every day if he could go to school that day. Well, baby boy, the big day arrived!
|Yep, I went all in with a new school outfit and pictures. I'm that mom.|
Rhett was a total champ. He walked in, hung up his backpack, and found his name apple all on his own. This kid is meant for preschool. And at the end of the morning, he and his teacher only had glowing things to say about the day.
So bring on show and tell, spotlight posters, and school art shows! Crazy that Rhett is in school, but we are so excited for this next phase!
