First Day of School

Ty started preschool!  He is in the Young Two’s class at OLA (you have to be two by the end of December); the class is two days a week for three hours.  MJ is now in the Monday through Friday three year old class at OLA.  He was so excited that Ty was going to school with him (although he was a little upset when I told him that they weren’t going to be in the same class).

Steve took MJ to school on his first day:

I went to work late on Thursday so I could take Ty on his very first day.  Ty was a little grumpy that morning because MJ woke him up early – as you can see, it was tough to get a good picture!

When we got to OLA, MJ helped me walk Ty into his classroom.  He looked anxious for a few seconds, but one of his teachers came over and showed him where to put his sippy cup, diapers, and school bag.  Once those things were put away, he ran off to play with his new friends (and cool new classroom toys)!  I was soon forgotten.  Sigh

MJ and I walked over to his classroom where he quickly found his name tag.  After blowing me a kiss goodbye, I was soon forgotten (again).  Sigh.

I decided to peek back into Ty’s classroom to see if he was missing mommy, and this is what I found:

Ty train

You can’t see the other kids because they were crying in the corner, but not my Ty Ty!  He was as happy as could be playing with a new train (which is apparently much cooler than his mommy).  haha 

Ms. Lisa said that Ty started pouting when she came to pick him up because he wanted to stay!    We will see how long his new found love for school lasts.    :-)


  1. Love catelyn's face in these photos . Such cute kids!! So wish we lived closer to ola. I have heard awesome things!! You look amazing too, like 3 is easy!

  2. I am so impressed that Ty took so well to preschool! I know that had to be a relief for you. All three kids looks so precious. They are just the cutest little things. Ty continues to change so quickly (to me). Can't wait to see all of ya'll next weekend! :)
