This last week was very fun and busy! I worked at the school several days this week volunteering for the courtyard activities that the kids had. I really enjoyed getting to see how Kennedy operated in that setting and see her schedule a little bit. It was nice to have the time to chat with the teachers and get to know them better also. It was fun to put faces with the names of stories she’s been telling me. Here’s one of my favorite this week:
In a previous post I mentioned a little boy that dumped sand on Kennedy’s head everyday. Simply put, she wasn’t enjoying that. She took my advice and invited him to play with her. She told me, “Mom, it worked! I let him be my husband. Then, I can send him to work and get him out of my hair!” It was all I could do to not die from laughter. She cracks me up! I have NO idea where she learned that!
The courtyard activities were centered around the theme, “All About Me!” They did lots of craft projects and paint projects. There were other fun activities mixed in there too. The kids got to play at a water table, blow bubbles, and play with chalk. You get the idea. The other day was PURPLE day! Kennedy’s favorite colors is purple (mine too). Pink comes in second for both of us! So, Kennedy came home thrilled and wanted to make a purple cake! Since I love chocolate, I was game! Then she had to wear her purple silk pajamas and slippers to bed; of course. Seriously, this preschool stuff is AWESOME! It’s been fun to let her do her thing at school, and then come home. We talk about it, and then continue the fun!
