Elias’ First Day Of Pre-School

Elias started pre-school today!

This morning before we started school I asked Elias, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” He looked at me. Paused. And then a little frown appeared on his face. He said, “Mommy, I don’t want to grow up…

My heart nearly fell into a million pieces. My arms squeezed him into a hug and I whispered, “I don’t want you to grow up either.” After a few minutes I tried again, “So… when you are big like daddy and go to work, what do you want to do?” This time a smile zipped across his face, “Oh…” He stated, “I want to drive a train dute.” (Dute is his way of saying toot toot). So there you have it. He wants to be a train conductor.

Today Elias learned about the color red, the letter “A”, and what a circle is. Then we had some painting time. His new curriculum came this afternoon so we will start that tomorrow. So far pre-school has been so fun for him.
