is preschool ready for James Buchanan?

James starts preschool today!! Actually it was an open house/meet the teacher day. This is his first year flying solo (yeah!) He has done preschool at Miss Maren's Monkeys for the last 2 years and he has been so desperate since Paige started back up that I figured it was time for him to branch out on his own (actually I decided last year when he was driving me bonkers). He goes to an elementary school 3 days a week for 2 hours. The cool thing is our little friend Elle will be in his class as well. I've had her for 2 years of preschool, so he's got one friend ready made.

Mrs. Johnson has 24 years experience teaching preschool & so I think she will be able to handle my special blend of snakes, snails & puppy dog tails - that we lovingly call James. She does have 25 kids to contend with so my hat is off to her. I only have 6 this year and I'm just about spent.

Wow I didn't think he was that old. I wish you lived closer. I need a preschool teacher! I'm going to do preschool myself. It's hard having two in the same grade. How are you feeling? I hope you doing good!!!

Hey Maren - I found your blog through facebook. Hooray! How can you possibly have a first grader. And James looks a touch like his dad. Have you ever found yourself saying this: "James - what's in the dryer?" "Nobody." I am sure the day is coming...

That sound like so much fun. I am usually in that area throughout the week. I take my first (very needed) lesson tomorrow so hopefully after that I will be more prepared to start up some fun projects.
