First Step

Today was Johnnie's last day of preschool. He will be starting a TEDDE program in September. It is basically a 2 year Kindergarten program to get 4 year olds ready for full time Kindergarten. The curriculum is mostly the same but the ratio of children to the teacher is really small & there is a lot of time spent helping the child grow emotionally. But before he does that we celebrated with his classmates today & he willl spend summer just playing with his classmates. This afternoon we helped him celebrate. Daddy, Grandpa & I were there. Joey is in the class so of course he was there. Johnnie loves his teachers & will be very sad to not see them everyday. But he will definitely miss his friends the most. And I spend a lot of time trying to convince him that he will make lots of new friends. We were very proud of our boy today & look forward to all his first school steps.

Oh my -- in one of the pix Rick has Johnnie's "I'm smiling for the camera" smile. Take a look! A big step for Johnnie. He's a cutie all right. Give him a big hug from Gramma and Grampa.
