Chase's first day of preschool
The kids all started back to school this week, including Chase, who started preschool. I'm still working on the other kids' scrapbook pages of their first day, so I will have to post them individually. Chase was sooo excited to start preschool. Before we left home, I told him the story of the Kissing Hand- a young raccoon starts school and worries about leaving his mom so she fills his palm full of kisses. His little storage of kisses can be used throughout the day whenever he misses his mom by pressing his hand to his cheek. After I told Chase this story, I took his little hand, looked him in the eye, and told him that I was going to kiss his hand and that if he missed me, he would have a whole hand full of kisses from me. Without missing a beat, Chase replies, "Oh, but I won't miss you." I had to laugh. Thanks a lot Buddy! He did have a great time at school. I am so glad he has something just for him!
