Jacks going to school!!!

I can't believe Jack is old enough for school already!!  It seems like just yesterday he was a little baby, just taking those first steps, but here it is, time for preschool!!

All the paperwork has been filled out, Jack had his physical, and now we are going to preschool screening!

Jack and I went to the school where they 'tested' him on various things to see where he stands both with language, perception, what he knows so far.  He met with one of the school readiness teachers.  I was quite sure he would be nervous, cling to my leg and not speak to anyone, but he really proved me wrong!!

The first test was seeing if he could stack blocks in the same way the teacher built hers...he did pretty good, you could tell he was really thinking about it, and when he couldn't quite do it exactly like hers, he looked at her and said, "it's not really the same, but it's pretty close!".   :)

Then he had to sort little plastic bears by color and size, which he had no problem with at all.

Next, the teacher read him 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'.  He talked about the story with her as she read it, asking questions and explaining to her that butterflies have wings so that they can fly, and that ladybugs also have wings to fly.  (That's my boy!!)

The last thing he did was draw a picture of anything he wanted.  It looked like a big scribble to me, but when she asked him what it was, he said it was a monster.  When she asked where it lived, he said "Africa"!  See that, he already knows geography!!  :):)

Afterwards, we stopped at McDonalds for a Happy Meal then went to a playground nearby for a picnic lunch, some playtime and geocaching!!
