The grade school here has an awesome preschool program, where the kids go 4 days a week for 3 hours. They get to ride the bus, and when they are 4, they also begin learning Spanish.
Luke loved the first half of preschool, but once they started doing half of the class in Spanish, he got nervous that he couldn't understand and started REALLY not wanting to go.
He also decided that he wants to wear nothing but fleece pajamas all the time (even when it's 85 degrees outside), and the fact that he had to wear normal clothes to school, made it even worse to get him to go.
We spend the last half of the year with charts that he could put stickers on each day he went to school, and when the chart was full he got a prize. I had to do charts, bribes, some days just letting him miss school, and pretty much a lot of begging and pleading for the past 6 months.
Getting him to the bus stop was torture, but once he was there, and once he went to school, he loved it and had a great time. (insert eye roll)
|the bus stop crew. I never got over how cute it was every day to see these little guys line up and walk to the bus every day.|
This particular day was pajama day at school..Luke was beaming!

I am so proud of him for sticking it out. He is a very bright little guy, and learned a ton this year! I am so excited for him to enter into Kindergarten next year.
