Tucker's first day of preschool

Today Tucker started preschool!

Because his birthday is 10 days past the cutoff for school start, he is technically supposed to be in a 3 year old preschool classroom this year.

However, the 4 year old class was very small this year at his preschool, so the director offered a few of us who have children who just miss the age cut-off the option to put them in that 4's class, creating a combined 3/4 year old room.  They will only have 6 students in their class.

We thought this would be a perfect fit for Tucker!
He will still go to VPK (Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten) next year, so he will be in the correct class when he starts kindergarten.  

This is Mrs. Kathy, his teacher this year!
I just met her this morning when I dropped him off,
and I think she will be wonderful for him.

A few days ago, we began talking about preschool and his first day, and he was very adamant: 
I am not going to school.  I think I will just stay home with mommy.

So I wasn't quite sure how he would do this morning,
but when he walked in and saw all those fun toys and children playing,
he jumped right in and didn't look back.

I was so excited to pick him up at 1:00.
He said he had a great day, and his favorite part was playing on the playground.  I asked about his teacher, and he said, "She is very nice, and a little bossy."  Hysterical!

I said something about "Mrs. Kathy," and he said, "Mommy!  No, that's not her name.  Her name is (enunciating very carefully) MISS KAFFY!!  Do the ffffff sound, Mommy!"  I cannot convince him that the th says /th/ in her name - he corrects me every time.  This kid keeps me laughing.
