First Day of School!

The day has come for my sweet little boy to start preschool. I wasn't going to put him in preschool this year, I was going to wait until next year. But Landon has been talking a lot about going to school lately and I can tell that he is tired of being stuck at home all the time. Still I wasn't going to do it because I didn't think we could afford it. I was talking to my friend at a ward party a few weeks ago and she told me about this preschool right by our house (within walking distance) that was super affordable. To make a longish story short after a kid dropped out I was able to get Landon into this preschool.
Today was Landon's first day and he was so excited to go. It was orientation day so I stayed with Landon and filled out paper work today. Landon will go to preschool Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:15 to 10:30. His first official day is Wednesday. He had so much fun today and he was so sad when it was time to leave.
I can't believe Landon is old enough to start preschool. I know he is only 3 1/2 and maybe I feel this way because Landon is my oldest but preschool seems like such a big deal to me. I guess it just seems like this is the first step of Landon becoming more independent and not needing me as much. I love to watch my children grow and learn and start new things but it is also a little sad at the same time.
Landon at his Preschool. He had so much fun!

He looks so cute on his first day! It's hard when they start school. I really didn't realize how big of a helper Clayton was until he wasn't here (yikes). I'm glad that he likes's so much better than the alternative!
