Preschool: It's all over now baby blue

Last Friday was the boys last day of preschool. It is so hard to believe that the year has already come and gone and that this is the last time my boys will be arriving for their first day of school here and walking through those gates as a preschooler. Sigh.

It seems like just yesterday but it was more that two years ago that I first dropped them off, for the first time ever I had left my babies in the hands of others. Those others nurtured and cared for my boys and I couldn't have asked for a better first school experience.

This year was not any different. We had such wonderful teachers that fostered that love of learning, and sense of exploration. They encouraged, supported and loved my boys and I will never forget the amazing experience we had, how safe they made me feel leaving them in their hands, how special they made my children feel, how much they learned.

Thank you to the amazing teachers and staff, we will always remember our first foray into education.

Almost every day we had to stop in the office to say Hello to our teacher from last year, it is clear that the boys were very bonded to her, and to all of the teachers at our school. I cannot say enough good things about our school. I am so sad to be saying goodbye.

A good friend of mine made these monograms for their teachers and I thought they were such a cute idea, I stole them for our end of the year gifts. I love how they turned out. The boys added a picture and note for the backs, they were a hit with our teachers too. This is where my friend found the idea.

Off to Kindergarten in the fall...I am so not ready for that!

My second review for the Blog Her Book Club is up. This sequel to Waiting to Exhale is a reminder to us all that a good girlfriend is a valuable thing.

You may have noticed the new little badge on the right of my blog. I joined the Blog Her Book Club!

I read my first book, and posted my first review for the book A Discovery of Witches, it's a great book to take on vacation, or to the beach.

I have to say it was quite a luxury to read a book again, you know, the kind with out pictures!!!
