Landon started preschool today. I blinked and my baby turned into a boy. Landon had been looking forward to this day when he found out he would be going a couple of weeks ago. Finally the day came, and the first thing that he said was, "SCHOOL!" He was still laying in bed and had a huge smile on his face. We had breakfast, got dressed, and then he put on his backpack a good 10 minutes before we had to leave. Ted called and asked for us to come pick him up from work so he could be there to drop Landon off on his first day (what a good daddy!). We pick Ted up, and get to his school a few minutes early and wait outside until the teacher opens the door. The teacher comes and the kids start going in with their parents, all the kids were pretty much not leaving their parents' sides. Then there is Landon, he said bye and took off for the classroom not caring about Ted and I and just plain excited to get into the room. Finally we caught up with him and got his backpack and folder in their places and then he was off on his own again. If you know Ted and I, you know that Landon did not get his outgoing nature from us. Ted and I were always reserved and shy, especially at that age.
I picked him up three hour later and he came out of his room just like he went in when I dropped him off ... excited and wearing a huge smile! He told me all about his day, excited and proud of everything he had done! I am so proud of my little guy!
