Kenzie and I have had a great time this year doing a preschool co-op with five other moms and their kids. At the beginning of the year we sat down and figured out a schedule and themes and letters we wanted to teach and then each of us taught every fifth week.
Kenzie is ready for kindergarten, she met some new friends, and she got to experience different teaching and discipline styles. I got to make some new friends, felt like I was making a difference in Kenzie's life, and got to develop some new skills during my preparation for teaching the classes.
Some of my favorite times with the kids were making hot cross buns, playing "man on the moon" with a large refrigerator box and sponges for moon shoes, and having a balloon Olympics. Kenzie said her favorite thing was making a grass caterpillar at Jennifer's house. It was a great experience for us both and I plan to try and do it with my other kids as well.
Happy Graduation Kenzie!
Handing Kenzie her graduation certificate and asking her to share a talent with us (she chose snapping and whistling).
Hooray, throw your hats!
Each kid brought a unique and fun personality to the school. I really enjoyed being a part of it and getting to know them.
Here we are, the awesome moms who did this: me, Jodi, Trisha, Jennifer, Jessica and Sherrie
