Brody's 3rd Year of Preschool

Brody began his 3rd year of preschool on Wednesday, September 3rd.  He still attends three days a week Monday, Wednesday and Friday, but Monday was the Labor Day holiday so no school.  We didn't take him into school on his first day because it works out better with less tears if the teachers walk the kids in.  I made the mistake of saying an extra goodbye and I love you to Brody when he got out of the car, and he looked back with a sad look on his face.  I think he did fine though and got into the car that afternoon all smiles and proudly showing off his fish art project.  They will be learning about the beach and ocean this month so he will get lots more use out of his summer beach themed clothes. We had actually went to meet his teachers the week before so we felt he was prepared to start the year.  He also got new shoes this year as I felt it was time he had something besides hand-me-downs.  He looked so cute and grown up in his new shoes!

Brody got used to his classroom on the day we visited.

Playing cars with one of his new classmates.  Sadly, Brody is not in class with most of the kids from his previous years.  Many of those are actually going 5 days this year so they are in a different class.  He will miss his buddies but will make many new friends.

Showing off how strong he is on the playground.

His upper arm strength is so much greater than Evan's.  Evan can still barely hold himself up.

Swinging like a big boy too.  We have been working on pumping our legs to make ourselves go.

Going down the slide.  He likes to hang on the bar and swing first.

Again, have both of my boys grown two feet this year?  For this one, maybe just 6 inches but still.  Sigh.

He likes sitting in the tunnel.

Making his fish art on the first day of school.

And eating his lunch.  He hasn't done a great job eating his lunch so far and has brought it home and eaten it.  
And I felt that a little flashback was in order here:

Brody's first year of preschool at 16 months old.  He looks so little!  *Sniff*

Looking a little bigger his second year.  
Just how big will he look next year?

  1. You have such a precious family! If I were Brody's teacher I would be thrilled! (I used to teach Pre-K.). It looks like they do amazing things at his school.
    Love to your sweet family! <3

  2. I love that Brody wants to be a Snowman when he grows up! Ha ha ha! Also, yes, when did he grow? He suddenly looks so big.

    And I LOVE that tunnel picture. It's just beautiful.

  3. I noticed it first in the last post about Cocoa, but it was confirmed here. Brody has lost all of his baby fat. He is definitely looking tall and lean. Good luck with school this year Brody! I'm sure you will do great.
