Our little preschool group met for the last time last Tuesday, the 21st, and I was the final host. We mostly hung out and played, with a few graduation activities mixed in before the moms all came for a potluck lunch and little "ceremony".
It was tough finding a group of kids this year but in the end it all worked out so perfectly. I loved meeting for one entire day each week instead of two shorter and the mix of 3 girls and 3 boys was great. The kids all got along really well and they didn't just play with the same people each time, which I loved. Preston was so excited to go each week and was especially excited when it was at our house.
I, on the other hand, was left feeling pretty stressed when it was at our house. When I was organizing it I had no idea my photography business was going to take off so much and not slow down the entire year. It has been exciting of course, but also left me wishing I had just put Preston in a regular preschool. I am definitely happy to be done with my years of preschool co-ops, but also so happy that I had the opportunity to do it with each child. I love that it really gives them a chance to become good friends with some of the kids from church that will be in other elementary schools and I think it is a perfect preparation for real preschool and eventually kindergarten.
