smooth sailin' today

I was mostly worried for Dexter today because he's really never been away from Theo, but especially since he's been old enough to know what's going on in the world around him. For example, his brother going to an ultra cool new preschool while he returns to the babysitter. Alone.

There were no tears this morning.  None from Dexter, none from mommy or daddy, and certainly zilch-o from Theo.  He was pumped to get to school and get to playing.

And that he did.

When I picked him up, they reported that he was wonderfully behaved, kept very busy, and had them in stitches with his humor.  Couldn't ask for a better report than that.  Ms. Darcy, one of his teachers, said that during circle time, they were teaching the new/little ones about raising their hand before speaking. This is new to him, as he's never been in this kind of structured classroom setting.  Ms. Darcy said that after being instructed, Theo did raise his hand to speak one time, but did not feel that it was necessary subsequent times. She said he kept saying "but I already DID raise my hand."  ha.  

Ready to play.  See ya, mom and dad!!
I can't wait to see how much he learns and grows from this new experience.
