Jackson’s first day of Preschool

Jackson had his first day of preschool yesterday! I know you’ve heard me mention it a lot in anticipation, but the day came and went. There’s 4 moms in the neighborhood that got together and purchased preschool curriculum. Several of my friends kids didn’t make the preschool cut off and I wasn’t ready to send J to preschool at the local school yet. It turned out perfect! Each of us take a turn teaching 2 days a week one week out of the month(the 5th week of certain months we’ll go on field trips). The curriculum was about $90 each for the whole year(we bought the curriculum for the whole year at a discount in March, but they send you each month’s packet monthly). Here’s a link to what curriculum we use here.

J was really excited to go, but he was confused that he wasn’t riding a bus or going to the middle school that we pass everyday by our house. I had to explain to him that he was just going to his friends Derek’s house. He actually cried for a few minutes and didn’t want me to leave, but he eventually calmed down. When I picked him up he was really excited to show me his art, numbers, and his hand that his teacher traced for him. I really enjoyed the 2.5 hours I got to clean bathrooms, vacuum, and  run to Target. I’m excited to try some new workouts during that time too!

After I picked up J we headed to my mom’s for lunch so he could tell her and my sister all about his day. We took a few more pics there with the “My first day of preschool” sign.

Then we headed to my MIL’s so she could hear about his day and to make peach jam. My in laws have 2 peach trees that give sooo many peaches every year. This year we decided to use this recipe(altered slightly) to make peach jam. It was a success! We also put some in bags to freeze for smoothies.

Since I didn’t get done making Jam till about 5pm I made a stop at Cafe Rio for dinner. It had been too long since we ate there, and it was so good.

Let’s end on a random tip shall we? Don’t use your curling iron in Singapore without a serge protector because when you bring it home said curling iron will be broken:( Luckily, I’ve bought the same one since high school from Target for $10!

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

  1. Peaches! I don’t style my hair regularly (unless its short, then its all flat iron) but when I want to get curls I use a 1 in barrel, and I’m thinking about getting a 1.5 inch so I can have some bigger looser waves. I think its great that you’re all sharing the preschool! What a great way to start learning!

  2. That’s the same curling iron I use haha Sad yours broke though.
    J is so dang cute! Glad he had a good time and you enjoyed the time to yourself! 🙂
