Preschool Days!

Well, it's official...Jacob has gone to his first day of preschool! He was asked to draw a picture to share with the class on his first day. He decided to draw our family. I was surprised because he usually doesn't draw much besides Star Wars. I'm orange (we're talking about the picture now), Willie's blue, the two small purples at the bottom are Jake and Josh, Nathan is the little one floating above me to the right, and the one floating to the left is...SURPRISE! I have exciting news to share with everyone...I was watching a friend's little boy today, Collin, and I guess Jake didn't want him to feel left out. (No, I'm not pregs again. Did I get ya?)He even wrote his name on the back. He was feeling pretty proud of his picture and ready to go.But first we had to do pictures in front of the house before going to school just like we always did when I was growing up.The little brothers were excited too! When we got there he hopped right out and went to the door. No hugs and kisses, no "Mommy, I'll miss you!" He was ready and so I tried to be real cool and just let him go. I was excited and sad at the same time. There's no turning back now... The first thing he told me when I picked him up was, "Mom, I had too much fun." I tried to get a blow-by-blow description of his first day but it seems like the highlights were jumping on the trampoline (two times!) and drinking water. I can't seem to get more detail than that. Oh, he did tell me today is Tuesday, so I'm guessing they did calendar. My little boy is growing up and I love it and hate it at the same time.

Congrats on the first day! It's crazy how exciting and yet sad it is at the same time. Hope he has a great year!

Okay, this blog made me cry! I cannot believe how quickly the boys are growing up. Jake looks sooo big. They all do! We miss you all so much. Give the boys a hug and kiss from Grandma Nelson and remind them "no growing!"
