Monday was Wyatt's first day at "pre-school". He is going one day a week for two hours only. Eric and I both drove him, and I was dreading dropping him off, as this is always a disaster. But we had checked out the preschool before and really liked how the teacher handled Wyatt, and most importantly, Wyatt ended up having fun!
So the transition wasn't nearly as bad as I had anticipated. Sure, he cried and clung to me for dear life, but the teacher held him for a while and successfully distracted him into having fun. I know this because when we came back from a lovely breakfast out together, he was sitting in circle time for songs, and he had painted a cool picture. He also helped the other kids "feed" a dinosaur (a plastic play structure dino in the back of the school), and went down the slide several times on his own. And I would be lying if I didn't admit that probably the best part of all was the two whole hours it afforded Eric and I ALONE to have a date. Mondays are now the best day of the week. :)
After we picked him up, we drove down to San Diego to see the boats in the harbor. Wyatt fell asleep on the way down and woke up as we were driving around Seaport Village. We got tickets to see a bunch of naval ships and two submarines, something we had never done before. It was definitely up both the boy's alley. ;) Here are a couple pics from the day:
