Pre-School (year 2) and Discovery Days II

The boys started "school" at the church just down the street from our house last week.  This is Ethan's first year at this particular church, however, Alec went here last year so he's at least familiar with the place.  Ethan was sad to leave his old church behind, but it's so convenient to have them within walking distance AND at the same church.

This is Ethan's second year of Pre-School, and he could possibly end up going three years.  With his birthday being right before the cut-off, we have the opportunity to give him a "growth" year if we feel it's necessary.  That way he'll be one of the oldest in his class if we wait, or one of the youngest if we send him to kindergarten.  So we'll see!

He is in the Blue AM class and goes Monday and Tuesdays for 2 1/2 hours, and Thursdays he stays from 8:45-2:45.  He has two teachers, Ms. Donna and Ms. Leslie and there are 24 other little people in his class.  I'm only guessing it chaotic, I can't imagine.

Alec goes to Discovery Days II this year.  It's like a Mom's Day Out program.  He goes on Mondays for 2 1/2 hours.  Ms. Kim and Ms. Virginia are his teachers, there are 14 little two year olds in his class.  He screamed at the top of his lungs after Nick and I dropped him off, was not a happy camper.  But he was just fine when I picked him up, as usual.

Here they are outside their school, I had to beg Ethan to at least TRY to smile.  Alec was my happy camper (for the time being).

If anyone needs to get ahold of me on Mondays between the hours of 8:45-11:15....good luck, because I won't be answering to anyone!  Yea!

  1. Yea! Don't you feel like you've accomplished something; getting to the point where boys are in school at least part time? It's like we've earned that little nugget of alone time!
