Field Trip- Farmers Market

Teagen's class does at least 1 parent day a month, and on months with holidays, its usually 2. I love it because I get to see what her daily life is like away from home. Since she's never been in daycare, its kind of a tough spot for me to have her with her own little life every day. So parent day is important to me. Not to mention, she is a middle child, and never gets anything that is just for her. She is thriving in the school environment.
Unfortunately, I have to bring Grady with me. This started out OK. Mrs. Cooper treats him like another student. He had breakfast with the class and sat in the circle.

It was both of their 1st time on a bus. They loved it. Teagen was very proud to be riding a real school bus.
At the farmer's market, things went bad fast. Grady tried to hide and run away from me. I was trying to help Teagen complete her list of things to find. and it was really cold and rainy. Here is Grady hiding....

Also I should mention that Grady stole a giant beautiful apple. By the time I noticed it, we were no where near anyone selling apples, and I had no clue who he took it from. A proud moment for me, certainly.

A class pic. You should know that I had Grady in a headlock with my knees in order to get this shot.
Dedication, I tell ya.

Back to the classroom. Grady always finds the naughtiest boys to sit with. The teacher even noticed this and said something.
Next year is going to be awesome.
But since the day was supposed to be about Teagen, I would like to share that she is just amazing me with her social skills, and it seems that for now, all the preschool skills come very easy to her. She is great with scissors, and can write every letter. Mrs. Cooper also made a point to tell me that Teagen has fantastic writing skills. Already sounding out words and writing them in stories! That girl makes me so proud!

Oh the joys of preschool!! Lukas too is doing well (Or - so I think..we have conferences soon). I too enjoy our family days! Today was one of them! But - we haven't had any field trips yet. I'm sure my posts will be similar to this one when we do!
Great story though!

I love it!! Grady is so my favorite 3 year old boy!! I feel very "at home" with him...he is my red headed babies!!! He will drive you crazy, but guarantee he will be your lover!!! I have no idea how many times I called Jimmy drying about something Isaac did, but I just love that kid!!!

Good to hear that Teagen is doing so well and that she is enjoying it. What more could you ask for??/
