Caleb's First, First Day of School

We enrolled Caleb in preschool and today was his, and our, first day. We are very pleased with the school's curriculum and the location couldn't be better - right across the street from our apartment. The school requires first time students to be accompanied by their parents all day for the first 4 days. So, Kenny and I walked Caleb to school and then Kenny left me there to observe - or try to anyway. I did my best, but sometimes it was hard not to intervene when Caleb decided not to share or threw a tantrum when he didn't get his way. For the most part, he was very good and had a great time. I think he will enjoy preschool and we are happy that he has other children to play with and that he will spend 4 hours a day immersed in Spanish.

School?! I'm totally jealous. We're doing a Parent Ed class with Lucy but it's only once a week and I have to stay the entire time. Again, I'm jealous. Can you tell I'm ready to ship off my kids for a few hours each day?!
Your hair looks really cute in the family photo. And I love how excited you and Kenny are, and how ho-hum the kids are. Perfect.

Very nice family photo. School is great- both of you will benefit from a little time apart.

I love that they have uniforms for preschool.
Great family picture.

He is going to be so awesomely bilingual--and even have the perfect accent (because isn't there some study about before the age of 5 or something and accents?).

He looks like the Caleb we used to know but he's so grown-up! He is quite handsome - but where's his cherub cheeks and head of downy fuzz? What a fun pre-school and awesome location! Beautiful family picture - I really like your hair, Linsey!

I just saw your comments on our blog. I also have been checking your blog - linked via Kim and Abe's. I love to hear all about South America. We hope to go there next - si Dios quiere.

I love Nancy's pictures. I hope she can gets some photos of us next summer. Have they moved to Provo yet. The Chinese have blocked her websight. I love filtered internet.

Anyway, sounds like you guys are having an adventure. I love living abroad, never a dull moment, right.
