First Day of Preschool

I can't believe that Ellie started preschool this year. Last year we intentionally kept her out of school because we were concerned about the germs that she would bring home to Nathan. We used preschool as a way to encourage her to not have anymore accidents and so far it has worked. She loves being able to go to school with her friend, Heidi, in our ward. We are carpooling with Heidi's mom and so Jake and I are responsible to take them to school 1 day a week. Ellie is attending the Raspberry Sawhorse Preschool in Mapleton with Ms. Jackie as her teacher.

I am very impressed with how the preschool is run and about what it being taught. Ellie came home and told us the other day that she was learning to share in preschool. She said, "I'm so good at it!" When Jake questioned her about sharing at home she responded, "Well, I don't know Dad. That seems a little too hard to share at home and at school!" What a little stinker!

All of that aside, she is having a good time and I can't believe that in a year she'll be going to school with Jake.

I love Ellie's "sharing" comment. That girl cracks me up!
