This is where Roxy goes to pre-school.
I don't even know where to begin to explain my feelings about it.
Her teacher, Miss Teri, is the most amazing teacher I can imagine. She would be a great teacher for anyone, but she is a perfect match for Roxy. Perfect. She teaches using a montessori style, the kids do so much hands on. A couple of weeks ago the kids sewed little pillows. Sewed! I would have never thought of teaching 4 & 5 year olds to use a needle and thread. But why not, they can do it. She instills so much self confidence in the children. She trusts them to be able to do things that are incredible, so they do, and they learn to believe in themselves along the way. And the patience that goes into that, she should get some award from Oprah or something. I will always, always love what she has done for Roxy, and I will always hold Teri in the highest regards.
Ok, so on to the pictures. I rarely take Roxy to preschool because I am at work. I think the last time I went there it was snowy, so on Thurs. when I saw her yard converted into a classroom I nearly died. I was so jealous of those kids who get to spend hours each day there. When I was a child I dreamed of spaces exactly like that. A place to dream, to read, to dream some more, to do crafts, to just be you and thats it. It is truly straight out of my childhood fantasies.
They love climbing this tree.
