Turns out, I had no reason to fear this huge step. Because this is what I saw:
He wouldn't even let us walk him to his class! He ran up to the door, couldn't get it open, so came back and asked for Eric to open it up. Eric said that once Tate got inside, he was off! He wanted to take these steps on his own. What an amazing moment for us! This, from our slow-to-warm-up, introverted son! So so proud!
He completely and utterly loves school. He is slowly making friends (which actually is easier than we thought, since 3 of the boys in his class are named Gavin!). He loves his teacher. What an amazing blessing! We all had a hard transition when we moved to MN. We didn't want this transition to be as rough. Turns out, God had some amazing plans for Tate and us in this transition!
And Quinn's first official day of preschool was also an amazing day! She actually has been in the preschool classroom over the summer, but she is now an official preschooler! (Gotta love fall birthdays!) Thankfully, she was excited to go "back to school" as well! She was ready to see her buddies!
Here is her first day of preschool pic:
She wouldn't take a picture without her Bubba! :)
Take care y'all! -Kristen
