First Day of Pre-K

Landon's first day of school was today. He did so well and kept telling me that he was going to be brave. And brave he was. He didn't shed a single tear. Me, not so much. I thought he was going to have a complete meltdown based on his reaction the night before, but he did really well when it came time for me to leave his classroom. The night before I made Landon cupcakes to celebrate the summer coming to an end. I invited one of his friends over to enjoy the cupcakes as well.
I then read a book to him that was read to me when I was a child. I love that this book was saved over the years and that I was able to share it with Landon. It was during this story that Landon became hesitant about going to school. In the story the mama bear leaves her bear cub at school. Landon realized at that very moment that I would actually be leaving him in his classroom with just his classmates and teacher. Before that point, he believed that I would be in class with him. The second I read that sentence his mouth dropped and his eyes grew wide. I reassured him that I would be back in just a couple of hours to pick him up and he promised to be brave. He made good on his promise and I of course made good on mine and came to pick him up.
 Landon was all smiles before leaving. I had a hard time containing his excitement.
I think this may just be the cutest backpack ever!

Random Pictures

This is going to be a post of several random pictures just because. I came across this little set up in the living room and it gave me a smile:

I would love to get into Landon's head one day. He has quite the imagination. I had him explain to me why the rhino was being surrounded by bugs and crayons. He said that the rhino was bad and the bugs were keeping him in his cage. Sounds good to me!

Back to school sales are always a great time to re-stock our arts and crafts supplies. I stocked up on crayons, colored pencils, markers, glue sticks, those sorts of things.  I organized Landon's desk and topped it with a couple of new coloring books and some drawing paper. Ever since, Landon has been spending much of his time coloring and drawing. I came across these pictures one night while I was picking up his room:

Summer Firsts

We managed to sneak in some outdoor fun in between the thunderstorms today.  I set up a slip 'n slide this afternoon and Landon had a blast on it. He wouldn't slide down it like one normally would, but he did have a blast doing an army crawl of sorts down it.

After dinner I decided to have another summer first with Landon and make s'mores. I was able to find a chocolate bar made out of rice milk. Landon was so excited when I told him that we would be making s'mores. He was impatient and only roasted his marshmallows for 0.2 seconds so his chocolate never melted, but he loved his s'more none the less.
