Preschool forever

The first day of preschool

I wish my kids could just stay in preschool.
Aren't those the best years?
A little bit of learning. A lot of playing. Tons of friends.

Today was Johnny's last day of preschool. I'm pretty bummed the year went so quickly.
I didn't have too many reservations about sending Johnny off to preschool. I wanted to keep my baby a baby, but there was no doubt he was ready.
Sporting his spiffy Lightening McQueen backpack, he proudly walked into the classroom that first day and promptly introduced himself to another little boy. He hung his backpack on a hook and dove into the puzzles with a handful of other kids. Before I left the classroom, I remember him looking up at me so happy...kind of in disbelief that he was finally old enough to go to school.

I think that's how he felt today at the end-of-the-year picnic. He wrestled with his friends and danced goofily during the little preschool performance. But, when  his name was called by his teacher to  collect his end-of-the-year projects, he just beamed.

"I'm so big now Mommy!" he blurted out as we drove home today from his last day of school.

I just smiled and thanked God that he can be little for one more year.
