Last Day of Preschool 2012

It was Parker's last day of 4 year old preschool. Last day of New Beginnings. I'm sad. We loved his school so much. I am a stay at home mom. I didn't need a place to watch Parker part of the day or a place to teach him the letters and sounds (though they really helped him fine-tune this area). I was searching for a place to send Parker a few days a week where he could meet other kids his age in a Christian atmosphere and be under the authority of someone other than myself that I trusted. New Beginnings was exactly what I wanted for Parker. I also unnecessarily sent Parker to preschool because I wanted some time alone with Graham, something Parker had early on. Most days, I cherish this time with Graham. Parker loved his school. His favorite days where Monday, Wednesday, and Friday when he got to play/learn with his buddies for 3 hours. Parker's teachers were amazing. They loved him despite his impulsive loud behavior and his tendency to require the "yellow" card. They were patient with him and truly cared for my little man. He felt it, too. He always speaks fondly of them.

Well, today we move on. He will be going to a new school down here in Teays Valley next year for Pre-K. Not sure what we'll do after that. David and I aren't exactly on the same page in the schooling department, but we'll get there and make the decision that is best for our family when then time comes.

This was the first day of 4-year-old preschool.

And, this morning:

I can see some change in Park. He's taller, a little older looking, and not quite as tan. But, hello, Graham!?! It's like he went from a baby to a little boy! Crazy what 9 months can do!

Thank you, New Beginnings, for being such a great preschool! We will truly miss you all!

Bittersweet for sure. And I can 100% relate to not being on the same page in the schooling dept...praying you guys easily find the right solution for your boys.
