Owen's first day of school and first field trip

August 11, 2009- Owen's first day at Saint Susanna
Owen started preschool at Saint Susanna in Plainfield. He'll be attending Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30-11:00 am. His teachers' names are Mrs. Hughes and Ms. Kelly. He loves both of his teachers but he has a very special place in his heart for Ms. Kelly. He even confided in me that he thinks that she's pretty :)
Owen was very excited about going to school, but when it came to actually getting out of the jeep on that first day, he was pretty nervous. He cried as he walked into school, but when I picked him up they said that he had stopped almost immediately.
Now he really seems to enjoy going. He talks about his friends, and share the songs and prayers that he does at school. It's really fun to watch him learn new things and grow up!

These are a few of the pictures that I took his first morning of preschool.

September 15, 2009- Owen's first Field Trip to Andersen Orchard
Owen was super excited to get to go on his first school field trip. Matthew and I both chaperoned, and Owen was thrilled to have Daddy ride the bus with him to the orchard. Once we got there, each child was given bag that they were able to fill with apples they picked in the orchard. The children really enjoyed getting to pick their own apples right from the trees!

After we filled our bag, we went back to the orchard store for a snack and cider. Then it was back to Saint Susanna. It was a really fun day, and I am thankful that we were both able to be there for his first field trip!

  1. How adorable Owen is! I can't believe how big he is. He looks like a teenager hanging out the bus window! Were you sad?
