Eli started preschool yesterday. It's his second year, but he didn't really get to attend much last year. He started getting sick in November, and wasn't well again until we got his nutrition/digestion issues figured out in March! We couldn't afford for him to get a cold or flu, and lose weight, so we kept him out of school.
But this year, I was a little excited for him to start. He weighs 3.5 pounds MORE than he did last year! He's made so much progress this summer...I hope he enjoys some time around other kids.
Here he is, as we get ready to leave home:
...and here we are at school in the parking lot...
His shirt says, "The World Revolves Around Me".
Our world truly does! :)
Here he is in his class. We were 5 minutes late, and circle time was over. Dang it.
Then it was time for recess...
and there are not paths for wheelchairs, and not ONE SINGLE piece of equipment for special needs kids to play with, on, or around!
He had fun listening to his music, though....
And so Mama Bear goes into her "something's got to be done about this!" mode!
In the preschool classes, there are three boys with wheels. They need a place to roll.
Things to touch, hear, and see. So, I'm working on it! I'm going to start fundraising and get some equipment for their playground. The principal is on board, I now just have to go through all the steps.
And raise money!
We will do it! I know we can. I have several parents ready to help me!
Back in the class, it was circle time. Eli still had his music on. He's laughing. Again. :)
Time to head home. It was a beautiful sunny day!
Eli was the only kid in the class with new clothes and shoes. Did I over-do it for my 4 year old?
Don't these just make you want a pair? Rubik's Cube Converse! Yeah, baby!
