Today was Caleb's first day at "school" (aka Kid's Day Out). He has been really excited about getting to go and based upon our conversations today it sounds like he had a good time.

As soon as he got out of the car he was on a mission to get to his classroom. He did a great job of just walking right into the building and down the hallway toward his classroom. He was a little shy when he gave his teachers their gift but he did it all by himself without me having to coax him.

Here he is showing his teacher where his cubby is for his lunch box. It was so cute watching him put his things away but made me a little said to see how he is growing up.
When we went for Orientation last week Caleb kept walking around the room taking it all in (aka looking for the toys ). I was waiting for it......he came up and asked me "where are the toys" :-). I reminded him that this was "school" and he wouldn't get to play the whole time. Today when we came into his classroom the teacher was getting some blocks, cars, etc out of the closet. Caleb got so excited and said "there they are!". He quickly settled in to playing and I guess was ready for us to go.
He evidently did not take a nap during rest time and quickly fell asleep on our way home.
I did really well and only got a little teary eyed when I was telling him bye and letting him know we would be back to pick him up later. I'm so proud of him and am so glad he had a great first day!
Here are a few more pictures that remind me just how much he is growing up. Tonight while I was getting dinner ready he came in to watch me peel potatoes and asked if he could help. I helped him do part of one potato and then gave him the peeler (I use a carrot peeler instead of a knife) and his own potato to work on. He really liked getting to help and commented on how he was helping me make dinner.
I think he did a really good job peeling his first potato without any help.

Just got back from GNO at Crosschurch with Anita Renfroe and Mandisa! This was just what I needed, it was a great evening of fellowship, laughter, some tears and praise. So glad I got to spend tonight with 3 of my peeps.
