Spencer's 1st Day of Pre-K

Isn't it funny how fast they grow up.  Here's the big boy on his first day of Pre-K.  And isn't it funny how the norm (in Roseville anyway) is 2 years of preschool!  Didn't there used to be a time when preschool at all was optional?  I'm a victim of the whole "high expectations in preschool" way of thinking.  There is a new teacher this year and at the meet and greet she kept talking about art, then play time, then art, then snacks, then art...  So I raised my hand and asked her if she was going to talk about the abc's or numbers at all.  She said a snide remark to her colleague and then said "yes, they'll know they're numbers 1-10 by the end of the year."  Wow...I was speechless.  They all learned that the first few months LAST year!  Needless to say, we sent over the very intimidating kindergarten teacher (Ms. Jordan) to introduce herself and help her know that a lot is expected out of the kids before they even start kindergarten.  We'll see how it goes. 

This big guy is really starting to be a lot of fun.  Not that he wasn't before but you know how they grow up and their personalities are more apparent.  Well, he's definitely a boy.  He's an outside boy who NEEDS to run around and move his little body.  He's turning into a big helper for me, too. Just today I asked him if he could please play with Trevor while I do the dishes.  He put him in our puppet bin and pushed him around the house.  Trevor was cracking up!  And Spencer was having a great time.  Those 2 will have a blast together when they're older.
