Shine on me

Once we got past the "car vs. snow plow" scene on Tuesday it was smooth sailing to SisterBear's new school. "My YOU-to-to" she calls it. I have no idea why. Most everything else she says is understandable, but "new school" always comes out with a few extra syllables.


It's a huge class - 14 kids. We're used to 6. 10 max.
There were familiar faces (BrotherBear's old teacher and an aide SisterBear knows from last year) and toys she loves, so the separation was a cinch.


The mom's had an hour with a parent educator and while I'm normally an active participant, I for the most part, settled back in my seat and soaked up the experience of being surrounded by other moms. I'm very isolated out here in the country and really missed my ECFE moms. I don't even know this new group yet, but already they are bringing sunshine to my life and when schools are closing left and right the night before, we could all use a little sunshine like the kids are using in this photo to melt the snowmen.

  1. Your pics bring back precious memories of my girls preschool years. We were fortunate enough to send both our girls to preschool for two years before school started. We were also very blessed with an amazing Christian preschool. ;o) My girls still talk about their experiences there.

  2. Lucky! I miss ECFE. We had a great program back in Walker. But we have a great group here now, at the library. It's so good to get out with other moms!
