Amelia’s First Day of School


Amelia started at a new preschool this fall. She’s at the YMCA Preschool right around the corner from our house. We were lucky to get into this great program when we called on the very last day they were accepting applications for the lottery. We had heard great things about the program so we felt very lucky and blessed to have been accepted. Amelia loves all her new friends (she can name 8 out of 10 of them already) and of course loves her new teachers, Miss Lauren and Miss Brenda. She had one day or so of not wanting to go, but as soon as she gets in the classroom she lights up and has a blast. The teachers rave about her and she loves to bring home her daily artwork.

After a few weeks of getting settled in, the kids had their first school “event”. Part sporting event, part fund raiser, all the kids brought their tricycles into school and had a “trike-a-thon” to raise money for St Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Amelia did great! She was nervous about it going in and up to that morning we didn’t think she’d be willing to do it. But, when the time came, she got right out there and was the fastest little rider in her class!

In October for Fire Safety Week, the local fire department paid their class a visit. A fireman came into the classroom and taught them all about his uniform. They all got fireman hats, stickers, and a tour of the fire engine! It was what they call an “in house” field trip!
