Amari's 1st Day of Daycare

Today was Amari's first official day of daycare. Trevor and I dropped him off earlier this morning after I got off from work. We started our daycare search in early December and looked at few different sites. We wanted a provider that had a low ratio, staff that interacted with the children that they worked with, and most importantly one that was inexpensive. We decided on a Christian affiliated daycare near downtown Olympia and I must say, we couldn't be any happier! All of the employees are so nice and today they greeted us and Amari as if they had known us for a very long time. We visited the site twice in December and when we took Amari for his first visit he didn't want to leave. He threw the biggest fit! He was having fun playing with the other kids and interacting with his new teacher. I was unable to accompany Trevor when he picked up Amari up from daycare this afternoon because I was at work but he said that his first day of "school" was a blast. Amari's teacher had nothing but wonderful things to say about him. He played nice with the other toddlers, napped well, ate a big lunch, and didn't hit anyone! The hitting I am most proud off. He has a tendency to hit when he is upset and we have been trying to break him of that horrible bad habit. Tomorrow will be day two and I look forward to seeing how my little stinker adjusts to his new routine and interacts with all the other kids at daycare.

 Too excited to look at the camera...
He loves his new school.

He found a ball! LOL 
Content, happy, and ready to play.
