Last night, we had the joy of attending our first Parents' Night at Jamie's preschool. It was amazing in many ways. (Not the least of which was that all three of our children stayed home with a babysitter for three hours - an incredible babysitter who put them all to bed, including Simon with a bottle. A big moment for us!)
After weeks of hearing bits and pieces of Jamie's life in school, we finally received more of a glimpse into that world. (Four years old and we already have these conversations: "What did you do in school today?" Reply: "Nothing" or "I don't remember.") We were able to see his math folder and writing journal. The journal has open-ended statements in which Jamie draws a picture to compete the statement. Jamie then explains his drawing to the teacher who writes the rest of the sentence on his drawing. We always knew our boy had quite the imagination, but were a little taken aback by some of his endings. All and all, it was a great, informative night, and reaffirmed our satisfaction with Jamie's preschool. He loves every moment of school and soaks it all up. And school photos have finally gotten cuter!
