Back to school with new little faces!

We are coming to the end of the first week of school. It has been a wonderful and blessed week.

For one thing, our enrollment is up. Grace has been blessed with 25 new families. So all that marketing work we did last year is paying off. YAY!!! 🙂

For another, I have an absolutely wonderful new group of preschoolers. (Bonus: when you teach in a school that includes preschool through 8th grade, you get to see your kids for years as they grow up … and the little ones give great hugs!)

Our new preschoolers have been playing a get-to-know-each-other game. We roll a ball to each other on the carpet. When we catch the ball, we tell one thing about ourselves.

Monday we told everyone our name. Tuesday we told everyone our favorite color, and so on. Everybody loves it!

Next week we will be sending an All About Me bag home with each child. Parents and children will place 4 things in the bag that tell something special about the children. I can’t wait to see what comes in from each child.

So, as much as I love summer … I love these little faces even more. Stay tuned. We have lots to share and do this year!!
