Daniel started preschool last week! Wow...I know it is only a co-op once a week, but I had a bit of a hard time dropping him off at the door. Daniel reminded me that he had to go 'by himself' and that I could pick him up later. His teacher (Amy) had a great lesson planned and Daniel talked about how much fun he had all day. Amy also told me an funny story when I picked him up. Daniel went potty in the toilet, and then proceeded to take off his diaper (which we put under his 'big boy underwear' when we are out of the house and do want accidents). He then had a little accident during the 'free play' part of preschool. Amy was a great sport about it, but I felt awful. It did not phase Daniel in the slightest, but I am not sure if that is such a great way to start off your education! 
So to sum it all up, preschool is AWESOME (and a great way for James and I to spend some 1 on 1 time) and potty training is going so-so. 
Tomorrow is another day of school, and Daniel cannot wait!

It's always fun when the Cannons come!

My wonderful sister Kate flew all the way from LA (with lizzy & tommy in tow) to spend the week with me in Rochester. I just LOVED having them, and hope they come back soon!
