Last Friday was Karson's 1st ever "school" party! They had from 9:00 - 10:45 of their regular day and then the parents were invited back to dress their child into their costume and enjoy a Halloween Party complete with a little program from the kids.
Our Big 3 year old boy wanted to be a Deer Hunter just like daddy is. So that's what he was :)
I was a little bummed that he didn't want a cute little costume but those days are over for our "big boy" I have to say he's a pretty cute hunter complete with his bow, arrows, deer call, and binoculars all ready for his party.
Here are a few pictures from his morning at school. Showing off his costume for friend Cooper the Captain Hook
Marching into the program
Marching to the music in with his friends. Such a proud moment as his momma :)
I was very nervous and excited for the program. When we had Karson at VBS over the summer the end of the week program didn't go so great. It is hard to sit still as a 3 year old BUT.....he did perfect! I was SO proud and he so proud to show me just how much he'd learned so far at preschool and all of his friends. They sang about 5 songs and came up one by one to the teacher in the middle and said their name and what their costume was.
To say that I was proud of a great program and of my big boy would be an understatement. I couldn't stop smiling at him and giving him thumbs up! (yes...insert crazy mom here)
Here is Karson and his great friend Jonas as Spiderman
Jonas's mom and I were laughing at how neither of them really wanted to smile. I guess that's not cool to smile in their COOL BOY costumes :)
Karson and teacher Miss Rachel. He adores her and talks about her often!
Karson with his "Molly" girl that we have been hearing about all school year. She was a flamingo and her costume was gorgeous. He was super excited to let me meet Molly. I hope he is always happy to introduce me to his girl "friends". Praying hard already for a gentle, godly, character now and through those teenage years.
After the program and party at preschool Karson asked if we could visit the park nearby and so we did. We had a great time just the two of us. Kipton stayed home with daddy because he wasn't feeling well and we decided it would be good for Karson to have just mommy's attention for his special morning. After the park we picked up some lunch and visited the Pumpkin House in Kenova, WV.
We had a great morning together and really enjoyed his first "school" party.
Here's to MANY MANY more!
