“THE GREATEST GIFT”
Thursday was Jadyn’s last day of preschool for the Christmas holidays. She goes back in January like all of the other school kids in elementary/middle/high school. It was also the day of her Christmas program. It was at 11:15 a.m., and Jace & I went. Since it was obviously in the morning, Jacey couldn’t go due to her being in school herself.
It was a really cute program. The kids sang songs and and had a few short lines about JESUS, God’s greatest gift to us. They did terrific. Jadyn looked so adorable in her cute little outfit, singing her heart out! Here are a few pics:
It’s official-preschool is over. Jacey has graduated! I cannot believe the school year went by so fast. Last Wednesday was Jacey’s last day. She & her class put on a cute little program about 15 minutes long, then afterward everyone stayed for light snacks.
I took lots of photos! Here is one of myself and my big girl! 😀
Call it a mommy moment-or me just not paying attention to a calendar (LOL)!
On Monday-I got Jacey all ready for preschool-drove over there at about 8:30-which is the time it starts…and the door is locked. Just at that time, another mom pulls up behind me with her preschooler. We both look at each other and say “Is there school today?” You know where this is going right?
I call my hubby at home, and ask him to look at the schedule/calendar, and guess what? NO SCHOOL! It actually started back-after the holidays- on the 5th. (The very next day and a day that Jacey doesn’t go).
I just don’t know HOW I didn’t realize this-or why I didn’t actually double-check the calender. I would say “How embarrassing”, but another mom did the same thing-so I don’t feel so bad! LOL! 😉
So today Jacey was the “line leader” at preschool. She has been waiting for her turn for the longest, as she was always talking about being “line leader”. The line leader also leads the group into their prayer at the end of the day. She first says it by herself, then she says it with the whole group. It goes like this:
Jesus sees me when I sleep…
Jesus sees me when I play…
Jesus sees me all the time…
and cares for me today!
At preschool-Jacey learns so many different things. Every day, they have a bible lesson-along with the regular lessons. Today she learned about the walls of Jericho. She also learned all about the different types of apples, and even got to try 3 different varieties. She said that the yellow apples were her favorite! 😉 She also learned about the letter “E”.
I will try and update every day, the things that she learns at preschool. I may get behind, but I’ll do my best to keep up! 😀
Today in preschool-they had a special guest to help decorate pumpkins. The guest brought pumpkins with him to give to the kids-fully decorated (painted), and some to decorate with the kids. Jacey really liked it a lot! When I went to pick her up, I had my hands full with Jadyn, 2 pumpkins, Jacey’s papers in her folders and some candy treats that one of the parents brought for all of the kids…LOL! Oh, and did I mention it was snowing out & windy? Luckily, it’s wasn’t a far walk to our SUV at all. 😉
Yes, today we got a bit of snow. It wasn’t so bad, it was kinda neat actually. The girls really like it! 🙂
It didn’t stick….it was too warm, but it came down pretty good for awhile.
Last Tuesday we went to our conference with Mrs. Elseth. She is Jacey’s preschool teacher.
Of course we heard all good things about our Jacey. How much she loves the activities they do….how well she is behaved, and so on…. We were very pleased of course! 😀
Jacey really loves preschool. Waking up in the morning is another story (lol), but she is very happy to go to preschool to learn & play. She gets so much out of it!
Jacey has been doing wonderfully in preschool. =] She has made many friends-and has the best time learning new things and doing art projects. At the end of her day ( which is 11:30 a.m. for her), they are singing songs and dancing around. She loves learning new songs…and when she sees me, she smiles SO big! It’s so good to see her enjoy it so much! This week they are learning about Noah & The ark!
Last Saturday we went to the West Fest Parade. Jacey’s school had a float in the parade, too! It was a lot of fun-but it was SO HOT outside. Afterward, we cooled off with some ice cream at Dairy Queen. LOL!
