This past Thursday Colby had an open house at his school. I was excited to get to go and learn about things he was doing. It was a family event so Austin, Colby, and I plus my parents all went. When we first got there we were able to go into the classroom. The teacher had hung up all their artwork that they have been working on for the past 2 months. I couldn't believe how much they have done! She also had pictures of them on the walls from the past 2 months. It was very interesting to see him in the pictures in his "school setting" and doing school things. I think he really liked having us all there to show his classroom too. We got to visit with his teacher some. We really love his teacher! I feel so blessed that he has had 2 great teachers in 2 years! While we were hanging out in his classroom the teacher had a craft for the kids to work on. Austin helped him with this. Colby enjoyed seeing all his friends and playing with them also! Next we were led to another room where they had juice and cookies set up. While enjoying the snacks they were playing a slideshow video of the kids. Again it was neat to see them in action. I was really surpised by how many activities and things they have already done. They even had live animals visit the school doing Farm week that Colby never told us about haha! After the video the kids performed the "Spooky Walk" and a few other fall/Halloween songs they had learned. Colby did some of it but he was more interested in eating and drinking. My little guy polished off 4 cookies while we were there. Its obvious we don't have treats in our house very often!
It was a wonderful night though! It was so nice to get to see what he's up to at school. We are very pleased with his little preschool. We feel like he's having so much fun but also learning too which is what preschool should be all about! He's loved and happy. We have even decided to probably leave him there next year instead of moving him to a bigger school. Still not a 100% but after seeing all he's done there and how much he likes it. Plus we have a dillemma with most schools being all day in prek 4 and I just don't want to do that. I want to have him 5 day a week next year but only 9-12.
