All of the songs were of the boisterous Protestant variety, and the kids all seemed to really enjoy themselves. For some reason my dashboard has changed (on Blogger) and I can no longer figure out how to load videos. I need to figure it out because there's some funny stuff there. Bella is sandwiched between all her favorite friends in her class: Mia, Sydney, Bella T. (mine), Madelaine, and Bella B.
I didn't even notice that she had taken her shoes off until I loaded the pictures for this post!
Here she is with her teachers, Mrs. Zeltner and Mrs. Meyers. This is Bella's latest 'smile face' for the camera. I don't know where she picked it up from, but it is seriously fake. This is a good one, actually.
I have been so happy with Stonebridge Preschool this year. For anyone in the area, I highly recommend them. The preschool director, Ingrid Ward was wonderful- There were at least 100 kids in the entire preschool, and during the ceremony, she introduced every single child to go on stage and give their teacher a hug. She knew every child's name, first and last, from recognition. She didn't have to read a single thing from paper. She would choke up saying their names and lamented losing kids that had become a part of her daily life that year. When I would drop Bella off each day she would greet the children and their parents, by name. They put together photo books for each of the children, specific to them. They had photographed them all year long during all of their activities, and made sure to photograph her with me on several occasions as well. All in all, it was a very good experience. I have her on the waiting list for the T-K program next year. Unfortunately it was kind of an afterthought as an alternative to the full-day kindergarten, so she's far down on the list. I'll be happy if we get to spend another year there with a Christian influence.
