The best smile he could muster
A Brave Bluebird - listening like a good boy during storytime
Apparently McGee made a big impression during playtime outside. His one teacher Miss Sonja told me how full of boy energy he was and how he was one of the "guards" (aka knight w/ a sword). She wished her batteries hadn't run out on her camera because she wanted to record it for me. Then as we were heading out two other teachers mentioned what a fun little boy he was and how much they enjoyed watching him on the playground. It's killing me not getting to be a fly-on-the-wall and seeing how he is when Mommy's not around! Fortunately so far all of the reports are positive. :)
After pick-up they allow the preschool kids to play in the yard as long as the parents supervise them and McGee had fun playing with his friends (J) and (N). (N) and McGee are in the same class, but (J) is in a different class so McGee enjoyed getting the extra time to play with him.
All smiles once at school!
Growing up my mom had a tradition of taking me out for an ice cream sundae after the first day of school. I want to keep that tradition with my children, but we were invited to join a few other moms and kids for "Happy Meals" and combined a "Happy Meal" with the ice cream sundae (they were only $1!). Definitely a rare junk food day for us.
