- Preschool was expensive.
- And unnecessary. (I think being expensive helped with this determination.)
Anna began receiving physical therapy (PT) services through Early Intervention (EI) when she was about 15 months old (I think.) We soon became aware that EI is only offered until the child turns three and then the child is transitioned into the public school system.
Thursday, Friiiiiiiday, Saturday"
Allie sings this all. the. time. She has been more vocal than Anna and Emily with respect to school stuff. She was singing another song with a line "there are seven days in a week." They are also learning the months and seasons.
In addition to learning their letters, they learn what sounds those letters make and associate that sound with words. So the girls might walk around the house saying, "Ta..ta..ta...toe! Ta...ta...ta...tiger!"
One night last week, I asked Allie to go write her name for me. She didn't have anything to look at, copy or follow. She returned with a piece of paper with "AELE" on it. Then she said, "Oh, I forgot the other L and she tried to add it after the A. I was so proud of her. Unfortunately for her, Allie is a nickname so there may be some confusion between spelling her legal name and her nickname.
Okay, so this is the best quote ever. It comes from Allie. Ms. D is her teacher.
"But Ms. D says that we should make every day a fun day."
This was after Allie asked me where we would be going the next day and I replied, "Nowhere."And more random stuff. Em's nickname at school (from her teacher) is GigglEmily. She actually brings home papers that say this on it.
And I can't have a post without adorable pictures....so here we go. The girls' classrooms had "Valentime's" Day parties, which they were so excited about. I took these pictures that night as they looked through their valentimes. (And yes, I am misspelling that wrong on purpose. That's how the girls say it.)
Anna making her duck face because her hand was wet from a lollipop. When she makes that face, which is quite often, I call her my baby duck. (She wore a jean skirt over her leggings for school.)
Allie refused to wear pink or red. And took off running when she saw the camera.
