Eli had his Pre-K Jump Start Day last week and boy was he excited. He has been wanting to go to school since Owen started at WLB last year. He talks about being a big boy in Mrs. Maxwell's class with his buddy Jayce (you can see the male bonding above). Those two boys are going to break some little hearts. Oh, he also LOVES the idea of riding the bus. I wasn't going to let him ride, but it's obvious that he's ready and Owen will be on there to watch out for him.
I love watching Eli's pure joy and excitement in taking on this new role of student. I love his teacher and the school. It's hard to let go, but it's so wonderful to watch him grow in confidence.
I love you Eli Benjamin. Here's to a year of learning and growing.
