Wyatt's 1st Day of Preschool


Wyatt,

My dear little buddy, my mini Mr., my little sunshine, our little stinker, today (8-20-13) was your first day of preschool. Looking back I am we will laugh about how big of a deal your Daddy and I made today but in the moment it was all worth it! That smile...it warms even the hearts of even strangers! 

This morning around 5am you woke up yelling for me to come lay in your room. I brought you into our bed (which we don't allow very often anymore) and you smiled from ear to ear. We snuggled close and you fell back to sleep in my arms with your Daddy's hand on yours. I had a flashback to the hospital bed where we, you, your daddy, and I, all slept those first 5 nights in the hospital bed. We held our brand new little baby boy and never wanted to let you go. We had no clue what our new life with you was going to look like but we were in for the amazing ride. The Lord did mighty things in that hospital room over those few days we spent there...you are who made us parents. 



Now, a little more than 3 years later when I look deep into your eyes I see nothing but pure joy. I will be honest when I say as I watched you walk into preschool today I imagined what it would look like if Ryder was holding Daddy's other hand as we walked into the building this morning but I am quickly reminded that was not God's plan. You being with us is his plan...


I let Sis wake you this morning as you were still sleeping peacefully when it was time to wake. Praise the Lord you woke with a smile on your face. The sun was shining and you said "look Mommy, Jesus made it another beautiful day." We got ready and headed outside for pictures. The only time you got a little upset was when you found out you couldn't wear a hat and you had to let Daddy fix your hair. You claim you "not like the foggy stuff," aka hairspray. ;) 

We took you into school and you didn't even look back...straight to the rug with boys and blocks...


Daddy and I missed you while you were at school but I am pretty sure Sis missed you more. She said your name over 1,000 times! She asked where you were each time we got back into the car. When we asked her if she was ready to pick up she nodded and was out the door! She adores you SO MUCH! 


We arrived 30 mins. early to pick you up. I don't think I have ever been that early somewhere...we were so excited! There were lots of other Mommy and Daddy's ready to pick up your friends as well. Sis was yelling for you as soon as the door opened. You can running with a HUGE smile on your face. We started asking you so many questions! You loved the playground and reminded us the slide was for going down not up...that's what your teacher said. You also told us you were only allowed to use the stairs to get up to the slide on the playground. Luke was the friend's name you mentioned and you said he was the only friend you made today. You were a little concerned when you realized you left your painting of flip flops at school but we quickly reminded you the teacher will keep all your special things in your binder until we meet with your teacher later in the year. The other thing that was "cool" was the potty. What a boy! 


After we picked you up we made a special stop to pick up a treat Eesie and Poppie got you! You were so excited...

Wyatt, I am so proud of you! It makes my heart so happy to see you smile at school. It's supposed to be a place to enjoy, grow, and learn and I pray it continues to be fun! Keep smiling and be kind to others...Daddy and I love you so so much!
