The "Big Kid" Class

Katie Anne has now completed her first week in her new "big kid" class.  After Spring Break, Mrs. Heather moved Katie Anne up to the "Threes and Fours" class across the hall, and Katie Anne is loving it.  The big kid room is a lot bigger in size than her previous "Young Threes" class, and she loves having all that extra room.  There are new toys to look at and new books to read.  Also, there's lots more kids - and two teachers - in the class, so she's got lots of new people (and kids from her old class that had previously moved up) to play with.  In the new class, they do lots more art projects and school-related things (this is sort of the pre pre-K class), so she's loving that.  That's her modeling one of her projects above.  They've been studying gardens all week, so she made a garden hat.  But, the best part of the class - bar none - is the BIG KID PLAYGROUND.  Ever since Katie Anne started at her new school this time last year, she has been desperate to play on the big kid playground with its big slides, ladders, and just general big kid air of coolness and exclusivity.  Well, now folks - she's out there, and it is just as wonderful as she always hoped it would be!

Aw! I'm glad that she loves her new class and that she's having fun on the playground. I wish there was a preschool like this somewhere around here. :)

Hard to believe she's old enough to be in the "big kid" class. I loved her photography and sweet comments about your baby BOY!!!!
