Daddy and son off to work and school. Too cute. I love that they have this time together in the mornings now.
I picked him up from school and took him to get Nancy's Italian Ice. He told me all about his day while enjoying his treat. (A couple days later when in the van and I asked about his day he said "good" and that was it. When I asked if he would tell me anymore he said it was a secret unless I took him to get ice cream. Nice, bribery from a five year old.)
Joshua was pretty lonely without Nicholas around so I thought for sure he would be excited to go to preschool the next month. Not so much. He enjoys it once he gets there, although he tells me he didn't have a good day, but I know better. It takes effort to get him dressed and out the door and into the classroom, but I am praying this will get better soon (which it has). He likes to help the teacher so we are trying to have things for him to do to transition him into the classroom in the mornings. It seems to be working even though he still wants me to stay with him. We will see how long this lasts. At least I know he is in capable, loving hands. (He is doing much better these days. He likes for me to stay a little bit, but doesn't hang onto me when I leave and he enjoys knowing the activities for the day. His way of staying in control I think. He loves block time and when they do cooking/art with Ms. Kristy. He is always smiling when I pick him up so that is a good sign for sure.)
It rained his first day so he was able to use his rain coat, although he still insisted on wearing flip flops. We have lost one of them recently which he is sad about. He would go barefoot if he could.
Burt picked Joshua up from school his first day and took him for ice cream just like Nicholas, but that picture is on his phone.
