What's Hap-pinning Wednesday: End of Year Wrap-Up

Happy Wednesday! I can't believe my boys are finishing preschool this week; summer's beginning tomorrow at 2 p.m.! 

We absolutely adore our preschool. Since we moved, it's a bit further away from our new house. I had originally {sadly} un-enrolled them from our beloved school and enrolled them in a preschool closer to our house. But after laying awake at night for weeks -- I kid you not -- wondering if we'd made the right decision, I kept getting a big "no" from God. Brandon and I talked about it, and we both agreed that the best thing to do would be to keep the boys in their current preschool for next year. We both love the school, the teachers, the staff and the director and the owners, and knew that keeping Walker there for his Pre-K year (his last year before public school!) was the best decision. And let me tell you, I'm so beyond relieved and excited about this decision. 

So anyway, that aside, it's their last week of school and we had a fun little week planned for their teachers. We celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week this week there. Some other moms and I brought in breakfast for Walker's teachers and I brought in breakfast for Knox's teachers. Parents can sign up to bring lunch in for the teachers and they all eat together at noon while other parents sign up to volunteer to cover the teachers' classrooms while they enjoy an adults-only lunch for 30 minutes. I kept Knox's class yesterday (such hilarity!) and loved being with my boy. We adore showing our teachers how thankful we are for their love, guidance and education they provide! 

Here are some pictures from the week... 

+ This was Knox's first day at school in early January: 



And here was his last day on Tuesday: 



I can't get over how much older and bigger he looks here! His sweet baby face is almost gone, and I know I'll always remember that cast. 

+ Tuesday morning, a few other moms and I provided breakfast for Walker's teachers (and please note that I didn't bring that table cloth; HA!): 



We absolutely adore both boys' teachers! They have been so good for the boys this year. 


+ Walker had a little Disney theme on Tuesday and I put him in this shirt since it's all we had, even though it was a little big. Oh well! I figured I would get pictures with his teachers on Tuesday, too, since the last day of school excitement wasn't there quite yet. ;) He'll get his traditional chalkboard first/last day picture tomorrow. 




+ And sweet Knox with his teachers. How I love them!

  5. I'm so glad that you found a place that the boys love, with people who love your boys! I'm hoping the same happens for Ella at her preschool/daycare next year--but I'm definitely nervous about her not being with my trusted friend.

  7. Sometimes you just get that gut feeling and have to go with it. It's great that you followed your instinct. It's obvious in the pics that the boys love their preschool!!
