Schools Out for Summer!!

Well, for preschool at least. We still have 4 more weeks before Madison is done. Nora had such a fantastic preschool experience and I am so glad that I decided to go with the one we did. I will admit that the parent co-op portion of it is alot more work than I would like sometimes, but the experiences that she got this year were so worth it. She can't wait for September when she gets to be in the red class.

For the last day they had a carnival in the preschool. Mrs. Brown started out reviewing all their favorite songs from the year. Then one room had EVERYTHING removed from it (glad I wasn't on that assignment!) and cute little booths and stations were set up (face painting, snack booth, fishing, balloon pop....). Perfect for the 3 and 4 year old crowd. Not too overwhelming but tons of fun. Parents worked each booth and gave the kids prizes when they completed the task.
I was in charge of the cake walk at the end and made these ADORABLE (if I do say so myself!) banana monkey cupcakes. The teacher had a monkey theme all year with name tags, stories to start the year, her Christmas gift to the kids..... so I thought it was the perfect end of the year treat.
To finish the festivities we presented our kids with their preschool scrapbooks. Nora is loving hers and spends lots of time perusing it.

That looks like a really fun preschool. I'm sure you are ready for summer with all that you have been doing. Great job!!

I love the monkey cupcakes. I also love that picture of Nora and the expression on her face while she looks at her scrapbook - don't we hope our children will always look at scrapbooks that way!!
