He was pretty squirrelly on this day (not to mention SUPER shaggy) so we only got a select number of pictures where he would actually look at the camera, but I suppose that is common at this age. And thankfully, we got this gem up above.
We went to his program at school, which was memorable and will be shared shortly. Afterwards, we went out to lunch and celebrated with an afternoon at the zoo. We are so proud of our boy, and even though there were aspects of preschool that were challenging for him, he has come SO FAR this past year. We love his preschool, love his teachers, and are so thankful for the education he is already getting.
I expect this will be a common view for us as he gets older. Him, backpack, walking away. I remember he had never worn a backpack before his first day of preschool (he refused to try it on). And now, it's just so natural. I can only hope that we are in some small ways instilling him with the values that he will live with the rest of his life. We love you so much Mason. And we are with you wherever your path takes you!
