Carter's Big Day!




Carter*Ella*Kallie

Carter's 1st Day of Preschool was and is definitely a big day in both of our lives!! Carter was so excited for his big day.... HE got to wear his "1st day of preschool clothes", wear a backpack (which had nothing in it), have a teacher, be able to bring home his "art projects", meet new friends, have sharing time each day, and just feel important and Big cause he was going to school!! As his mommy, it was a big day for me because this was the start of some time, 3 hours to be exact, to get more things done and maybe some free time to myself..that is if Sawyer is sleeping. I love my Carter so much and love spending time with him, but I am sure all of you moms would agree that having some time alone is much needed and nice. It will also be nice to spend more one on one time with little Sawyer! So, Yeah for preshool! Carter had a great day and was already asking if he could go back to preschool when we got home. He also loves it because he gets to go to preschool with his 2 good friends Ella & Kallie! I am so happy he loves it. IT will be so good for him to experience being in a class room setting, with a teacher to listen to, and to be learning all the fun things they do in preschool. THis is the start of a good thing!

Yeah Carter and Shelly, all moms need breaks it makes us better mommies. He looks so grown up going to school. I love his cute smile for all of his pictures.

Yay for preschool.....for Carter and for Mommy! It's stimulating for him and you can get more done in those 3 hours than ever before. Not long and he will be going to Kindergarten! xo

I can't believe he's old enough to go to Preschool! I've never even met Carter which means WAY too much time has gone by since I've seen you. At least I know I'll be in CA next Aug. for Lindsey's wedding... and by then Carter will almost be 4, Sawyer will be over 1 and you'll probably be having another baby! Just kidding.

He is the cutest little preschool boy in Cali--I'm sure of that. I'm glad he likes it and I'm glad you get to have some Mommy time. Us Mommies need that for sure. ILYT oxoxo

Hi Shell! Love to Carter from auntie kris. Preschool power! Great for moms and the boys too. So nice to have the down time. I'm loving his shirt. And I love your new kitchen door. I might have to copy it in the future. :)

It doesn't seem that long ago that we were admiring our first-day-of-school outfits and backpacks and shoes and hair plans (poof my bangs a little higher, please)! Ahhh...memories. I can't believe that you're on the other end of the first day of (pre)school adventure! Crazy that we knew each other at around Carter's age. Miss you!

We are so lucky that we get to go to preschool with such a cool kid! Carter you rock!
