Moving On

Last September I blogged about Jonah's first day of preschool and entitled it Seasons Change. Well, two days after saying goodbye to the dogs, Jonah had his last day of preschool (at least for now). Considering my emotional state about the dogs and the knowledge that we were going to be moving in a couple of weeks, I was more nostalgic and sad about this day than Jonah. With our new home being significantly further away, I knew he would not be coming back to that preschool and I was somewhat saddened that he would not be able to continue developing his friendships nor I the relationships that I had begun through the school and my MOPs group, both of which used the same facility. Jonah was pretty clueless and seemingly tired of getting up and out in the mornings three days a week as well (Kudos to you moms who work outside the home and have to do that 5 days a week!). I have been finding that Jonah is not really a morning person. (I wonder where he gets that from? Well, I'm congenial enough in the mornings, but I like it quiet and subdued until I've had a couple of cups of coffee and checked email. Jonah similarly likes his apple juice and a couple of cartoons before being shoved out the door in the morning.) So on this last day of school, Elisabeth and I popped in early to hang out with the class and get some pictures to document this milestone. Elisabeth enjoyed sitting and eating pizza with the big kids and later going out on the playground with them.
