A Preschool Field Trip...to Kindergarten!

Yesterday I went along with Coop on his field trip to a REAL kindergarten class! The preschoolers loaded into a mini-bus (for some, like Cooper, it was their first time on a bus) and it took us to the school, where we visited with a wonderful teacher and her class. It was very exciting! The kids listened to a story about butterflies, colored and cut out a butterfly, washed their hands in the "big-kid" bathroom, and played outside. It was a delightful day. :)
Coop & his friend Carl...all buckled up and ready to go!

Here's Coop coloring the most beautiful butterfly I've ever seen!

REAL butterflies!

What day at school is complete without a good climb on the jungle gym?

Even though Coop still has another year of preschool before heading out to kindergarten, I was so impressed by the way he behaved while he was there. I think he will follow in big brother's footsteps and be a very good student. :)

What a great idea! And so fun that you got to go, too. Thanks for sharing the pics.

PS -- For Oliver's baby dedication, we put together a slideshow and used the Nickel Creek Lighthouse's Tale song. So whenever I hear it on your blog, it brings back fond memories of that day. :)
