Day One-Preschool

Ollie started preschool last week with a bang. He has been so excited to start going everyday because he is 'a big boy who wears underpants'. As a sidenote: anytime I tell Ollie he can't do something (i.e. ride the bus with Mason, cross the street alone, do a fire dance) he says, 'but I'm a big boy who wears underpants!' Apparently, wearing underpants gives you free reign to do whatever you want. Who knew?

Ollie never stops talking long enough to get a good smiling picture

Matt has taken on the job of getting Ollie to school in the morning, as it is (sort of) on his way to work. On the first day, they arrived on time and Ollie ran right in. Matt said, "See you later Ollie" and turned to leave. The teacher quickly grabbed Matt's attention and said, "Aren't you going to stay with him for a few minutes?" She seemed concerned. Matt's response as he looked at Ollie already involved with some fantastic toy, "What for? He'll be fine." Ollie's dad is a pretty smart guy. He was fine. In fact, he was better than fine. That kid jumps in with both feet and never looks back. He had a great first week at school, and we are looking forward to several more great weeks at school for Ollie!

Here is his First Day of Preschool Interview:

Don't be alarmed if you can't understand what he is saying. We can't either half of the time :)

He is so big! And adorable! Once again I found myself wanting to answer your questions on the little video. Nerdy, I know! I miss you! Maybe someday you'll make it to Vegas! I'll put my order in with the big guy! :)

Way to go Ollie! And I loved the middle-child comment. Being one I know how it feels, as you do, and it's funny how we both are acknoweledging them. Maybe they won't be as nutso as us! :)

Janelle-Matt has made it clear that he does not like being referred to as 'the big guy' :)

I love that you interviewed your kids. What a hoot. The peach pie recipe is posted at the bottom of my bloggie for you. Beware, there is no turning back. Enjoy-this recipe is solely responsible for any mushroom effect hanging over the jeans this summer.
