The kid is now in her third month of preschool and she seems to still love it, though the transition from mommy time to school time is not going very smoothly at the moment.
Still, once she’s there she’s happy. She’s got friends, they go for walks, they play, they read stories and even did a play. She proudly told me she got to be the farmer’s wife.
What I only noticed today as she was doing her once-weekly homework was that her skills are improving. She’s always been a smart kid, and I gather that I’ve let her do some things before I was quote-unquote supposed to – like using scissors, but I was really impressed by her cutting skills.
At the beginning of the year the president of the school’s executive, who now has her third child going through the school, told us we should make note of some of the skills our child had at the beginning of the year and compare that with the end of the year. I didn’t do that in September, maybe I will during the winter break. Small increments leading to big changes.
