Well, today Colton started his last year of preschool. He was so excited all week/weekend and then the day gets here and he kept telling me he was too tired to get out of bed. However, on the way to school he started talking about how much fun it would be to play in the new playground because they have a new gas station for your car. Then he proceeded to say, "but mom you know it's not real gas because that would not be very safe." I pray that he has a great day and great year. This is his last year to have fun and enjoy before the real world starts. He can't wait to get to "big" school, but I think he has a lot to take in before then. I pray that he enjoys playing with his new friends and just being a kid and that I will allow him to do that. The control freak in me wants him to know it all right now and I have to step back and realize he is 5 and needs to enjoy being 5. Here's to a great last year of preschool!
As you can tell, he was so excited to take these pictures. He wanted nothing to do with taking pictures so this is what I could come up with without a big fight on his first day. And by the way, he picked out his own clothes for the day and I let him. If you know me, that's a big step and I'm letting some of the control go. : )
