I've posted on facebook about how Gabe's having trouble lately. Very emotional. Sad when Barry leaves, fine when I do. Well today was the poor chap's first day of pre-k. The last year before kindergarten! SO crazy.
He has been S.O. excited. Non stop talk of Miss Cindy, how Lily and London are in his class, how he gets to wear a backpack, and how Miss Cindy gets the biggest cubby, and he has a hooker for his backpack (yes hooker) you get the idea, I'm sure. Here he is before we left for school! Happy as can be!
He was excited even walking up to the school. He let me take pictures, which is hard for him.

He was even all smiles as we walked into his classroom. Then when I picked up Owen to leave, who seriously wanted to stay at preschool, I saw it. The lip quiver. :/ Then he started getting emotional. And then Miss Cindy, who stands MAYBE 5'1" tried to pick up Gabe. For anyone that knows him, you know he's a SOLID kid. She had trouble. I hope she didn't pull something. He weighs 3 lbs less than Julian, and he's 2 years younger. He's also tall, less than 2" shorter than Julian. He's a BIG kid. Poor Miss Cindy, poor Gabriel, but seriously it was all I could do to not laugh at her trying to pick him up. I will report back with how his first day went, I haven't received any phone calls, so I'm guessing it is going ok.
