It can't be....

that this little buddy of mine headed off with me this morning to meet his preschool teacher and classmates.

Whew... what a time I had trying to get a "nice" picture of him....but if you know Joseph...then this picture below is the "real" picture!  He is always being silly...just can't wait to see if he turns into the class clown that everyone remembers from grade school!  We headed to Mass this morning before going to the preschool room.  He was a little nervous, but quickly warmed up and answered (aloud) every rhetorical question the teacher asked.  I helped him fill out a form about himself as one of the activities where he told me the following-
favorite toy:  trucks and cars
favorite color:  blue
favorite song:  "Life is a Highway" from the Cars movie
favorite food:  Macaroni and Cheese
favorite place to go:  the zoo and park

The next activity was a reverse scavenger hunt.  The teacher had placed toys from the classroom in his bag and he had to find where they belonged and put them back!  What a terrific idea to teach how to clean up!  We got to participate in circle time activities and prayer and songs.  I am thrilled with his teacher and his helper teacher is simply an angel.  He will be in good hands....I just hope they keep their eyes on him AT ALL TIMES!  Oh my....he is fearless and full of energy, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE this little boy.

All I could think about when we were listening to the teacher read "A Kissing Hand" (one of my favorite stories) was seeing how Joseph smiled in his sleep when we held him in the hospital.  He has always been so full of love.  And it truly seems like it was just yesterday that I held that tiny little boy in my arms for the first time.  I am not ready for him to start the school scene...even if it is just preschool...but I know he is ready.

Here is his sweet teacher... Mrs. S

And this amazing lady below is his helper teacher...Mrs. M.

Hope you have a fun year little J!
