Palmer's had his first day of preschool on Wednesday. He was super excited about it! So excited, that every time I took his picture he couldn't help but to raise his arms up high in celebration.
He has a lot of his friends in his preschool class. Most he knows from my work in the local fitness center daycare, but there are also a couple of kids he knows from our neighborhood. He has been excited to go to preschool with these kids, whom he has recently been referring to as his "school friends".
I helped him find his seat and he instantly starting practicing his name (actually he just scribbled on the paper because he was too excited to focus on tracing). Brody happily plopped down in the chair right next to him and attempted to write on a paper that read "Maya". Brody was very sad to not be able to learn and play with Palmer. I had to carry him out crying. Palmer stayed behind happily.
Palmer's teacher informed me that he did well his first day. She did say that he needed to be reminded to stay in his seat and to listen a few times, and had to sit with her at one point because he wasn't listening, but for the most part, he had was good. He came back from class very hyper, and was running all over the place. He says he really likes school and wants to go again.
