First day!

Today marks Little Elvis' first day of pre-K!

Doesn't he look big? Our area has a special pre-K program. It's a small program, so Little Elvis had to be assessed at the beginning of the summer. We were kind of excited when he was accepted.

I've had mixed emotions about the whole thing. There are pluses (it's free!) and minuses (all day, 5 days a week.) He's only 4. But, he LOVES school, and I've heard nothing but praise for the program.

Baby Plum and I walked him to class this morning. Little Elvis was very interested in the science center. (Daddy will be very proud!) His teacher seems super nice, and excited to have him in class.

One odd thing -- Little Elvis doesn't have THAT common of a name. Well, his actual name is pretty common, but we use his initials. There's another boy in his class with the exact same initials, and two other boys with very similar initials. Oh, that poor teacher. She asked me this morning if she should use Little Elvis' whole name, or if she could call him by his first name. I told her would be more likely to answer by his whole name, but would be confused if she called him by his true first name. We thought by going with initials that he wouldn't encounter this problem. Oh well.

There are three little boys in our pre-k and two are named Jack and Jackson . . . last year four out of five girls had names that ended in the ie sound. Like Callie, Lanie, . . . I NEVER learned their names.

How is Baby Plum with Little Elvis gone all day? Does he seem to miss him?

aw, I can hardly believe he is that big already, wow! Sounds like a really exciting class, I am sure it will be amazing for him. And if it doesn't work out for your family, you can always pull him out:)
The name thing happened to us too. We didn't think our second son's name was common until he went to kindergarden with 4 other kids with the same name, 2 of them had same initials as my boy!
