My baby girl isn’t a baby anymore!
Yesterday was her last day of preschool. Ever!
As she said to me when I picked her up from school, “Mom! Today was the last day of school! Now I’m ready for KINDERGARTEN!!!”
This is what we made for her teachers to say thank you. We planted sunflower seeds in the pots, and decorated them with stickers and glitter, and Avery wrote her name on each pot. Then I used some of my flower hair clips to make little flowers to go in the pots, so that it didn’t look like we were giving them pots of dirt
Avery got playdoh, bubbles and sidewalk chalk from her teachers, and we also got this:
I LOVE this little book! It has pictures of Avery taken throughout the school year, starting with a picture they took at orientation at the beginning of the year (how about that big belly, eh??!). Then there are a few selections of some the work Avery did at school, and her handprints on the last page. I think it is adorable!! Love it!!
I let Avery take the camera to school for her last day so that she could take pictures of her friends. Her are a few of the pictures she took (with the other children’s faces blurred out):
Ms Faddis at her desk. Some of the girls in her class.
Some of the boys in her class. Mrs Williams and some friends.
And here are some pictures her teachers took for her
She also got pictures of herself with each of her teachers, which I was really pleased about because she loves all of them
Ms Faddis Mrs Shelton
It was a great year
As for kindergarten…. we’re not sure what we’re doing yet. What we do know is that she graduated out of special education (hooray!) because she is considered fully independent with her wheelchair and walker, so she will be in a mainstream classroom, which is both thrilling (for us) and terrifying (for me, not her). We are waiting to see whether she can get into Salem schools as a non-resident, and the other option is homeschooling for the year. We will see….!
