Drew happily ran to the bus on Wednesday, off for his first day of his last year of preschool. I can't believe that this little boy will turn five years old in just under one months time.
Drew loves his bus driver, Mr. Joe. We came to love Mr. Joe as a family last year. He is so kind to both of the kids and really takes care of Drew as if he is his own child. Mr. Joe was out on a medical leave at the end of the school year last year, and Drew was really missing him. The first day of school meant that Drew would finally see Mr. Joe! Drew could hardly contain his excitement to see his bus driver, and bound on the the bus faster than any child I've ever seen. Drew gave Mr. Joe a huge hug, and promptly said, "I can jump off the diving board!"
We're looking forward to a really fun year of preschool, as we prepare Drew to enter the mainstream next year in Kindergarten. It's going to be a great year!
