We were so blessed this year to have Olive in a wonderful Mother's Day Out program 3 days a week. The beginning was very rough and she had a hard time the first few weeks, but she ended up absolutely loving "school". Here are some comparison pictures of the first day and the last day. I can't believe how much she has grown up in such a short amount of time! My favorite part of these pictures is the confidence she has gained, you can see it just by looking at her!
I asked her a few questions about school, here is what she said:
Favorite teacher: "Mrs. Peggy, Mrs. Amanda and Ms. Tiana"
Favorite thing to do: "Play with Nuriel, he is so funny!" (side note: her teacher told me several weeks ago that she typically only plays with the boys. In fact, they refer to them as "Olive and the boys" Stephen and I decided that will make for less drama so we are good with it!)
Favorite friends: "Nuriel, Evan and Emma and Audrey"
Favorite thing to eat at school: "Mrs. Amanda has yummy cookies!" (it should also be noted that everyday when I pick her up the word NONE is circled by what she ate for lunch. Apparently she only eats snacks at school)
