Today is Odyn's 3rd birthday!! We are waiting a little while to have his party because he has some pretty big changes happening and we didn't want to overwhelm him. Plus having all kids birthdays in a row with only a couple weeks apart (trust me not planned) is overwhelming for the parents and guests.
Odyn's big change is that he also started preschool today. As you can tell from his face he is ecstatic about it. In fact that is all he talked about last night, this morning, and for most of the day. He's in the afternoon class so when he saw Damien and Aries get on the bus this morning, He was shouting "Wait for me!" trying to unbuckle himself from the car seat. It took some mighty convincing on our parts to explain to him that he would indeed be going to school today, just not right at that moment.
So for a birthday big boy going to school for the first time we took him to get his very first backpack. As you can see he clearly picked this one out all by himself. Soon he will ride the bus for the first time - Damien will be there just in case but I don't think he will have any problems. After all that was the one thing about school he wanted to do most.
Happy 3rd Birthday my sweet Odyn!
