The Next Stage

So tomorrow off he goes, my independent 3 year old, to begin his preschool years.

The next step after his 2 days a week in play school where he learned so much and loved every minute of it. 

Now he'll be in preschool 4 days a week, an extra 2 days doing his thing, learning, making friends, discovering, adventuring and growing up that little bit more. 

We broke the ice with play school last year but this next step is a bit more daunting for me, it's another step closer to the life of "big" school, he won't be going just for the fun and games this year.

It's extra special for me as his new preschool is in my old primary school. A new school was built next door not long after I left and the old building was turned into a preschool. I'd  always hoped my own children would get a chance to go to that school as I have such fond memories of it. 

My 3 year old will be walking into the same room I walked out of as a 13 year old leaving 6th class all those years ago. I'm excited and scared and proud and can't wait to see him take on this new stage of his life like the trooper that he is.
