Meet the Teacher

Note: I apologize for the delay in updating.  I've been rather busy in the mornings and have not had a chance.

We had Noah's meet the teacher on Thursday.  We were a little surprised that the two teachers were not who we expected.  His planned teachers had even sent him a post card saying how much they looked forward to having him in the class.  At any rate, these two seemed like they will be fine.  The class should be interesting for them as it will be 7 boys and 2 girls.  Noah is not quite the youngest, but he is very close.

He was concerned at first because there were no balls to play with.  He also was very nervous when we got there because he probably thought we would leave him there.  He eventually warmed to the place and started playing and having fun.  The biggest challenge now will be to get him to color on his placemat that they will laminate for him.  So far he has made a total of three inches of crayon mark on it.  Class starts Tuesday and we've been talking it up.

In a shocking, but very good development, Noah did not cry at all when he went to church today.  Normally he screams for a minute when we drop him off, but not today.  In fact, he said how much he enjoyed playing basketball tonight.  Hopefully he has turned a corner.  We'll see if that translates to preschool success, but I won't count on it.
