Today we had Charlie's Open House where he met his teachers, Miss Sue and Miss Becky. They were so excited to meet him, as they have seen Charlie grow from a pudgy little baby into a big boy.
It was nice to be back. I'm sure the boys' elementary school will feel like this one day, but we haven't spent enough time there. We know almost all the teachers at the preschool and the director, their stories and backgrounds. We know many families who have sent their kids to school with our kids and now have some in Charlie's class. Coming back here, starting a new year with this community is such a wonderful feeling.
As we were walking into the building this morning Charlie looks up at me and says, "I'm happy to be here." And that's all you could ask for in a school.
