On Sunday, she was excited to go to church because I told her nursery was "pre-school nursery. " She hasn't wanted to go to nursery by herself for 9 months!!! I can usually leave for 15 -30 minutes, but then she misses me and cries for me to come back. This Sunday, Chris dropped her off at "pre-school nursery." I think this is crucial to her being by herself. Then she played, had storytime, lesson, snack, and balloons (her favorite part.) She stayed the whole time by herself. I think we have found the two keys - Dad taking her and calling it school. The word "SCHOOL" IS PURE MAGIC. After church is over, we always let Cadence run around in the gym. She loves the way her feet sound on the wood floor! Thanks Young Women for the great activity for my daughter!!! I wish we would have done some creative activities like this when I was the YW President. What a great idea.

Young Women Pre-School Magic
Last week for the Young Women's activity in our ward, they did a preschool for the kids ages 2-4. I knew that Cadence would love it. She was such a big girl. Every time I say the word "school" she gets so excited! She LOVES school. She walked into the room by herself and had a blast. I'm not sure of everything they did, but I know there was singing, coloring, snacks, running around in the gym and storytime. Cadence really enjoyed her time at "pre-school." As soon as we got home, she ran to her room and found "The Cat In The Hat" which was one of the stories during storytime. That was her bed-time story.
