Nursery Rhyme Day

There are so many things that I miss about homeschooling.  To be honest, the first month of school I didn't!!  But then as the reality of commuting, balancing work and home, and our time away from one another set in, I can now definitely see both the pros and cons!  But there are many days that being a part of a school community, particularly a classical Christian school community, is pure bliss.  This was one of those days.  This was a day when all the cons were not even a factor and I enjoyed this day to the fullest!

Every year the kindergarten class works hard to prepare for Nursery Rhyme day.  Each child memorizes a nursery rhyme, dresses in character, and brings a themed snack.  All the parents and grandparents are invited to watch them recite their rhymes and eat snacks.  I have several sweet parents in my third grade classroom who have offered to step in for me when my own children have special days as this one.  So I was so thrilled when I was able to be a Mom and not a teacher at school, and enjoy seeing her with her classmates.

and Nana!

Fun treats!
The children all remembered their rhymes, with only a couple seeming very nervous.  There are 30 kindergartners, divided into two classes of 15.  They are so adorable and I am so excited to get to know each child and family and see Lydia Joy grow up with them!
