The last ones first day

My little four year old started preschool today. Hard to believe that he is old enough to leave my side and venture out by himself into the great unknown! I was worried that he would be timid and afraid. When the door opened, he marched right in with a smile on his face and wave of his little hand. I walked to the van in tears. It was such a surreal moment- saying goodbye to the last little bird to leave the nest! He will go to preschool 3 days a week and only for 3 hours a day so its not too bad for me! It definitely is happy and sad. A few hours a week to myself sounds pretty awesome but I will miss his little hand in mine while I run errands. I will miss his endless questions and chatting in the car as we drive. He's a pretty cool little guy to have around, but I am SO very happy for this little burst of independence getting him ready one baby step at a time for the great big world!
