First Day of Preschool

The morning worked out well. We had to get both kids ready for school this morning, since it was Buster's first day. He was excited to go, though, so there wasn't any friction in the process. M-lady even got him into a polo shirt. At about 8:15, M-lady took Buster to school, and I took Bud. Buster apparently was just fine at drop off, and waved to M-lady before finding his rug and sitting down, waiting for class to start.

M-lady worked from home in the morning, and then was on hand to meet Nanny J when she picked Buster up from school. Buster was fine at pickup as well, and M-lady headed to work soon afterward.

I got home around 5:45, and we said goodbye to Nanny J. I asked Buster how school went, and he responded with "Good."
Bud and I watched the second half of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and then got started on dinner as M-lady arrived home. Buster elected to watch a little bit of TV as the rest of us had some dinner, but joined us before too long. Bud did his piano practice after he finished, and snack time came up pretty quickly.

Both kids had a short snack, and then we did the bedtime routine. M-lady put Buster to bed, and managed to successfully extricate herself before Buster had fallen asleep. Meanwhile, Bud and I were playing "Wizard's Chess", which as M-lady described as Calvinball Chess, which involved no less than a checker board, Chinese Chess pieces, a deck of cards, and half a dozen plastic easter eggs.

I also took the opportunity to explain how real chess works, and how the pieces move, but he wasn't terribly interested in playing. We turned the light out around 8:45, and he fell asleep before too long.
