Farewell to Preschool (part one)

Today we bid a sweet farewell to the preschool days.  What a blessing this year has been!  Our main goals were for Emma to get a feel for a school routine, take instruction from a teacher, develop friendship with kiddos her age and to learn as much as possible.  I feel like she accomplished all of those things and much more!  A preschool teacher must possess the fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindess, goodness and faithfulness Gal 5:22) and Mrs. Susan is the perfect example!  She is wonderful and we appreciate her so much :)

I now have a huge folder full of Emma's precious crafts and handwriting samples.  Some of what she learned this year includes opposites, counting by 10's, and what food is (and is not) good for her body.  The students rotated jobs each day (line leader, door holder, caboose etc.).  It doesn't surprise me that her favorite job was line leader :)  They also took turns doing the weather and day of the month.  I will never forget the first meal at home that she volulnteered to pray for.  The sweetest voice said "God is great, God is good.  Let us thank him for our food.  Amen."  She also learned some of the Lord's Prayer and we will continue to work on that this Summer. 

Emma loved her classmates!  Here she is today with a couple of besties, Bailey and Andy (our carpool buddy!) 

Mrs. Susan gave each student a cd full of great photos she took throughout the year!  I'd like to share a few:

What's preschool without a little play dough?!
