In August of 2016…
J began his last year of preschool.
In what seemed like a mere blink of an eye, our baby, the youngest, was suddenly a full on kid. J can count to 100, recognizes all letters, is steadily reading beginning books, and can color inside the lines like a rock star (although I feel like most rock stars color outside the lines). His teacher has commented throughout the year on J’s endless kindness and patience with his classmates.
As he began his last day I asked him a series of J’s favorites questions, so here are my questions and his responses:
What do you want to be when you grow up? Zookeeper.
What’s your favorite movie? Finding Dory. Show? Paw Patrol. Video Game? Mario 3D World. Dinner? Pasta. Tsum Tsum? Eeyore (although I’m pretty sure it’s Stitch & Roo).
What does Mommy always say to you? Get dressed.
What’s your favorite game to play? Freeze tag.
And a few more things that J loves right now: board games, giggling, eating dessert, going to the pool, and going to get frozen yogurt…
Which I treated him to after school on his last day! He met up with several of his friends and ate a whole bunch of candy with a little frozen yogurt and giggled a lot. And if his love of dessert isn’t clear here’s a closer look at that bowl:
A sweet treat for our sweet boy! Both B and I are a little sad that J is leaving his preschool years behind, but we are so proud of him and so excited for everything he’ll learn in Kindergarten!
