Because Cadence is such a good talker and is so outgoing, she has many older friends. Some are in pre-school, Kindergarten, elementary and some in college (like many of our neighbors.) She often asks, "Where's (insert a name)?" I will often tell her, "At school."
Knowing that I will need to get out of the house in the winter, but not being able to go on walks very easily due to the snow, I've been looking around for fun things to do indoors. I checked up on "storytime" at the Family Information and Resource Center about a half mile from our house and they told me about a new program they are starting called Ready! Set! School! for kids younger than kindergarten age. I signed her up for school!!! It is one hour a week and FREE! They gave her a school bag with crayons, scissors (yikes), a pencil and a few other things. She was very excited!!!
Last Wednesday, we walked to school in the stroller. Half way there, Cadence HAD to walk by herself holding her schoolbag. She holds her arm up high so her bag won't touch the ground.
She likes her "school" (a portable) in back of "Mom's school" (where I taught my first three years) and likes to play on the playground.
She has two friends in her class, Bridget and Jack. I told many people with kids about it!!! This is Bridget and her mom, Tina!
For their first lesson, they learned about clean and dirty hands, handwashing and germs. Cadence also used scissors for the first time. (I'm nervous about the scissors. The last thing I want is for Cadence to cut her hair!!!) We are excited for the next 20 lessons!!! Cadence is such a big girl!
WE LOVE SCHOOL!
