A Major FIRST!

.
Thursday (1-13-11) on his 3rd day at his new Preschool ....  Nathan almost made me cry!  They trace their names every morning in school.......  

This is something we've always worked with Nathan one... we usually use the magnetic doodle strips, or just crayons and paper....  whatever.... but we're always doing this with Nathan.... saying each letter as we write it....

So this isn't something foreign to Nathan...

So the first day, I helped him write his name....  his hand inside mine.... me working the letters...

Day two....... Daddy said that he helped him (like I had the day before) but that Nathan had done the last N all by himself.......

So ...... Day Three....... I didn't touch the marker at all!!   He was so excited to be at school, you have NO IDEA how much this just thrills my core.  It's amazing to see him enjoy school, because he didn't at the other school.  And so I let him take the lead........ he picked up the marker, and I helped him with the cap... and he wrote (traced) his name..... all.......... by.......... himself!

He doesn't exactly finish his A's but... hey.... for a first time all by himself, I say ...... it's PERFECT!
