Today was Everett's first day of preschool. I waited too long to sign him up, so he was on a waiting list, but I'm happy with this start date. Before he could go to this preschool, he had a developmental screening. I had a hard time not beaming a couple of times during the screening. At one point he was asked to tell what a banana was. Everett replied, "It's a curve, like a crescent moon"... I was also happy to see him do his very first drawing of a person. I wish I could have kept it. I had thought it a bit strange that he had never before attempted to draw a person, but his first try was great. I'll try to get him to do it again so I can post a picture here.
Here's our little guy waiting outside the school:
There are eight children in his class, and it looks like a fun place to be. My only concern was that all of the other children seemed to be at least a year younger than him. He's a big kid, but he looked really big compared to everyone else. I'm happy that he will have this opportunity, and I'm sure he'll learn some things. I think the main benefit will be the chance to interact with other children his age (or a little younger) and develop some better social skills.
