So it was a crazy busy week last week. I think our family is not made for a fast paced craziness. We definitely need our down time…breakfast after 9, pj’s till 11, craft projects strewn across the den and Grace’s room, and “potions” being made in the bathroom sink, are all up our alley. Anyways, so we had a big week with graduation, graduation parties, crazy kids day at Mia’s school, and Grace’s tap “showcase”. All events were well-attended by the grandparents. I think half the audience at the tap showcase was comprised of Grace’s fan club! Not only was it a busy week but an emotional one. Mia’s graduation was particularly sad for me…it has been an incredible three years for Mia. Her preschool is such a joyful, loving & nurturing place for little people to begin their school years. I really am at a lost for how to put words together to describe what a wonderful place this is. I wonder what our world would be like if all children had such an opportunity for a strong start to life. The three teachers that run this school are really remarkable with their patience, tenderness and love. They create an environment rich with learning and fun, while establishing boundaries and high expectations for behavior and citizenship at the same time. Our family has been so blessed by this school…I think we need another baby, so I can go through the preschool experience again! I wonder if it’s because I was a kindergarten teacher that I feel so strongly about it, as I know a good thing when we find it…dunno! Anyways, thank you for listening to me ramble…on to pictures from our week!
Grace’s Tap “Showcase”: She was pretty nervous, but her wonderful teacher knew exactly what to say to get her up on stage and smiling…did I mention we’re surrounded by wonderful role models and teachers?
