Well Carter and I did it - we survived our first day of preschool! :-) It had its rocky moments - when we arrived at the classroom he put the death grip around my neck, and cried when I said bye-bye and left - but I waited outside a few minutes and he stopped crying pretty quick. His teacher said he had a really good day - he especially enjoyed loading and unloading gravel in a toy dump truck outside. That is very typical Carter. He also created this crayola masterpiece - his first real art project!! Apparently they do an art project every time, so I'm sure eventually I won't know what to do with these - of course I can't possibly throw them away! (I say this now... we'll see as the stack grows...) Since I didn't manage to take any card photos today I thought I'd at least post something creative! :-) The biggest downside I see with this preschool thing, though, is the nap situation. Carter usually naps ~1-3pm. At school they have quiet time from 12-1pm. Today he actually slept there (I'm shocked!) but for only 45 minutes, which isn't long enough and spoiled his chances for a real nap at home. By the end of the day this lack of a good nap really showed - he was a little monster this evening!! So now we'll see if my few hours of free time in the morning are worth dealing with a screaming child in the evening... the jury is still out! Ok I've given you your fill of posts about family stuff - will try to get back in the card groove before next post!!!! Take care!
