We were nice and busy with activities and projects in December. We made so many different kinds of ornaments, cookies and decorations. We had lots of sensory experiences, exploring with paints, dough and instant snow! We're wrapping up our long alphabet lessons with just X Y and Z to go. We look forward to playing around with numbers some more and strengthening letter, shapes and color recognition. We also look forward to making new friends this year.
Chase starts next week and I can honestly say that I am really excited about him starting with us. Monica and Chase have already had the chance to get to know each other a little bit, just right before the break, and the kids got to meet him, too. Chase just turned one, he is really cute, sweet, gentle and curious. We can't wait for him to get to know us and our routine. His Buddy, Avi, will join us later this year!

All About Mateo and Claire:
Can you believe that these two, at some point this year, will be turning 4? They continue to soak up everything like sponges, question and examine facts, tell funny stories and embody characters in dramatic play. They are so grown compared their younger friends yet fall to pieces just as easily. I love how much they love each other and pick up every week as if they were just together yesterday.
Mateo is currently working on social interactions at school with boys his age. He just learned how to play picture dominoes, has been drawing up a storm, grown like a weed and had ear tubes put in, in December.
