A big day for Everett!

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.

He's a smarty pants. Love his answer about the banana. :)

Beam on mom... that was a great answer! I hope he enjoys his time away from triplet land as much as Ella is enjoying preschool this year. She started in early September, but it has taken us this long just to get into a really good routine. Now every time she's not with us my other 3 say, Ella's at cool.
