When I told her that was a true story she kept the waterworks coming and was just heartbroken. She made me get up right then to send an email to Ms. Tera and Ms. Sarah. She loves those ladies and they love her back.
I am trying to figure out a way to break it to her that we will not be in preschool next year. We decided as a family it made more financial and emotional sense for me to stay home from teaching and 'homeschool preschool.' Paying 3 half tuitions plus getting 3 children up and ready 3 days a week as well as keeping my classroom running seemed a bit daunting for me and I figured I would still work in the nursery T/Th so that #1 and #2 could get their social fix.
Now I am second guessing that decision. #1 is such a sponge for knowledge and I don't doubt we could ge the 'school' part done. But she has tasted the fun of school and will definitely notice that our playroom is not like the center room. We will see how the summer goes. I hate to see her sad. I cannot protect her from life though I wish I could. And yet I am thankful on this Thursday that she is sad because school is over and that everything else is going pretty swell in her little life!
