1st Day of Pre-K (take 2!)

Matthew is what's considered a "late birthday" kid up here in our town. Since his birthday falls close to the cutoff date for starting kindergarten we had the option to have him repeat pre-k. So now, instead of being the youngest in his class, he'll be one of the oldest. This extra time will give him a chance to perfect his fine motor skills, work on his speech, and catch up to his classmates in physical size a little bit. He's thrilled with returning to pre-k because he's the king of the school there - loves his teachers and all the kids, and loves his role as class clown. Today was the first day back:
1st Day of Pre-K favorites:
Favorite color: Green (news to me, but he insists it is!)
Favorite food to eat: Strawberries
Favorite toys: Smurfs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Favorite movie: Toy Story 1-3
When I grow up I want to be: Myself (yes, that's exactly what he said when I asked!)

And since Noah just can't be excluded from anything that his big brother does, he just had to be included in a picture this morning. With his own lunch box of course.
Next week Matthew will be five. Next year, off to kindergarten!

Isn't it hilarious that their answers are always the same (favorite color for instance) and then when you sit them down for these questionnaire's it's something totally different? hahaha Alexa liked the color green, too!

Both my girls have late birthday's, too - so, we decided to give them one more year of preschool before sending them to Kindergarten. It's been fantastic for both of them!

Good luck in Preschool Matthew~

He looks adorable on his first day! Love that Noah had to get in there..Lol. I think it is better to be the oldest, it will be to his advantage for sure. And you will be glad he had more time being a kid because once he starts kindergarten it is not much fun..Lol!
