Tuesday was Ewan's first day of Pre-k. I have had butterflies for him for probably a week now and I figured that he would just walk on in and not need his mommy like he did last year.
While he did walk on in, he seemed a little more overwhelmed this year. He's pretty shy when he's in a new situation and will usually hug me or hide behind me, just like I used to do.
And yes, when we walked away, I totally teared up. One of the teachers asked how we were doing and I told her I was trying really hard not to cry. I know I will lose it when he goes to kindergarten next year.
All I could think about today was how he was doing. I figured he would be fine, but I couldn't wait to go pick him up and hear all about his day. He was so excited to see me and couldn't wait to show me what he made in class. He already was talking about a new friend he made, Evan, and how he was able to play with one of the kids from his class last year.
I'm so happy that he had a great day and am looking forward to the many adventures this year will bring!
