I love my.... er... E's preschool

This morning I am catching up on things at home.

Because last week I was never here.

And that was fine by me.

Last week during the time I normally get stuff done (read: while E is in preschool), I had my own assignments at school.  One morning I attended a class that a preschol teacher presented about helping kids with fine motor skills.  Then I went shopping for Breakfast with Santa- my favorite event of the year that I have the privilege of helping with for the second time.  Then I sold Rwandan pens and necklaces at our school's craft fair.  Then I stayed for our monthly prayer meeting (when we pray for each teacher, family, and staff member at the school... it's a precious time.)  Then I had two days of prep for Breakfast with Santa where I met a bunch of new (and quite fabulous) preschool families.  Then I went to dinner with 3 ladies from preschool (and one new-to-town friend!) on Friday night.  Then I hosted co-hosted a baby shower for one of my best friends who I met when our kids were "randomly" put together in their Toddler Class our first year at preschool.

Y'all.... I freakin' love that school.

Yes, I realize that E benefits from her experience at preschool.... but... let's be honest... so do I.  I have made friends, found kindred spirits, had an outlet, had a break, met people who genuinely love my child... and who love me.

That 3-hour segment of time I'm blessed with 4 days a week gives everyone in our family something special.

And I'm gonna miss it a lot next year.
