1st Day of Preschool

Tuesday, Henry had his first day of preschool. He goes 2 days a week for 2.5 hours and is in a class with 5 others, except during show and tell and recess which includes the kids from the older class.
I was, and still am, a little weirded out about Henry being in preschool. Luckily, my cousin is his teacher and it's in her home so I can be significantly less freaked out. The first week seems to have gone pretty well except he doesn't mix well with the big boys for whatever reason.
Come recess he is always getting into some sort of scrap at the very end. So we've had lots of talks about not hitting, not playing with kids who hit and talking to the teaching if something is wrong. The conclusion of our conversation yesterday was Henry saying,
"I will play with the stripe shirt boy and the girl with the shirt. They don't fight."
Sounds good, Henry. Hopefully that boy wears another striped shirt and the girl, well I'm sure she'll be wearing a shirt, so I guess Henry will have to remember something besides the fact she has a shirt on.
On to the pictures:

Apple Jacks, breakfast of champions, or at least of 3 year old boys

When did he get so big??? I cried a little tear when I saw this... I miss "big Henry" and you too. MOVE TO RICHFIELD! It's wonderful, really!

I am glad that he is doing good in preschool. It is crazy that he is in preschool already! Good Luck with it all.
