First Day of School 2010

Today was the first day of 4 year old preschool for Jack. We had a rough time getting dropped off at school last year so I was anxious to see how things would go this year. Here he is at home looking excited to get back to school!
 In front of school. Things are going well!
Waiting for his teacher. At this point I'm feeling very optimistic. Shortly after this photo, things fell apart in a big way.
 Once it was time to line up we got a lot of tears and this face.
 That is not a happy kid.
 The teacher let him lead the class and hold her hand, which helped.
 Meanwhile, Owen was not thrilled that he did not get to go to school.
 He was crying "I want my Jacky!!!"
 When I picked Jack up he was all smiles. He liked his first day even though the drop off was rough. Here he is in the hallway where we line up every day.
 Back outside of school we are all smiles again. Can't wait to do it all again on Monday!
