Xander’s First Day at “School”

Today Xander had his first day of “My First School” at the St. Louis Magic House. For those of you who don’t live in the area, it isn’t magician school but rather a nine-week, fun and creative preschool program for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 year-olds at the Magic House Children’s Museum. In the hour-long class, two teachers introduce the children to circle time, themed activities, free play, and songs/dances. In the beginning, the parents attend the class with the kids but by the end of the 9  weeks, the children attend parent-free. Xander appeared to really enjoy all the toys and activities in his classroom– he even liked sitting (on my lap) for circle time. He mostly played in the kitchen/make believe area but he did venture out to paint a beautiful abstract piece in the painting area. Here are a few pictures from his morning!

  1. Remember the good old days! We have alot of little boys Xanders age. They are so cute. I can’t believe he is old enough to go to school. Melanies daughter is in kindergarten this year, can you believe it!!!! Just sitting at the computer, which I don’t do much for fun, and decided to see what you are up to. We are busy at the daycare with all the little ones. I have 4 new ones this week so they keep us busy. I love to see Xanders pictures and how much he has grown. Janet

  2. Hi Janet!! Yes, crazy isn’t it? He’s potty trained and such a big boy! Can’t believe Mel’s daughter is in Kindergarten already! About time for her to have another one, eh? Hehe. Glad to hear the school is going well… Miss you guys!!
