Mother's Day Out Program :)

Today was Chloe's first day of MDO. She did really good walking in and going to her classroom. She had no tears either. She is going from 9-12 , 2 days a week. She is starting late because I did not feel good about the original one I wanted her to go to. I really really really love this school school that I ended up choosing. She has several classmates that she already knows too.They are using the Wee Learn curriculum and she will transition to the Abeka in the next class. Both are faith driven and im happy with that! She will be learning verses, songs, and bible stories, and all kinds of other things during the year! Another plus, it is only 12 minutes from home, so I will not have to chance her falling asleep during the car ride home (put her in a car seat and she falls asleep, then up till midnight or

 Eating her breakast..her favorite..pannycakes from Mickey D's (sugar-free syrup of course, didnt want to scare the teachers the first day)
 Her lunch, with notes from Mommy and Daddy! I bought a canisters of 100 cookie cutters, they have everything from numbers, the entire alphabet, to holiday shapes....this is going to be fun! Her teachers said she only ate the goldfish and with a fork!
 Telling Malakai goodbye for the day. These two will miss each other. I think he knew she was going to be gone, he followed her everywhere and would lay right by her feet when she would sit down. She told him
"your a good boy, you potty outside and you dont wear panties, you have a naked bo-bo."
 Walking in to class (blurry picture, ugh!)
 Mimi showing her the paydoh station!
 She ran to the gym first thing...
 I had her hair layered, it looks sooooo much better!
Hallway to her classroom :)

I love first grade!

My younger brother Brad, has such a sweet-hearted girlfriend, Amanda, who I love dearly. She is a first grade teacher in Frisco, and she asked for Chloe to come visit her classroom. I know one thing, she is definitely doing her calling. She is AMAZING, with her kids. Her room is so cute all decorated in lady bugs and bees. She has so many chants and cheers she does with her kids, it was so cool to see her interact with them. I can definitely say my elementary teachers were not like that, Amanda makes first grade AWESOME!
Chloe couldnt wait to get there, I dressed her in a ladybug outfit to match the room. She went to all the kids and asked "Hey, whats your name?" She had a great time, and is still talking about Amanda being a teacher!

Walking to Class
She packed her own backpack...12 pacifiers, blood pressure guage, doodle pad...everything a first grader needs i guess :)
Her own desk
Thought this class poll was funny!
this is where the kids sat "knee to knee and eye to eye", talking and talked about Chloe's day
She answered a question right and received a smelly on her hand
She got to point out the words with the pointer
