Laurel finished her year at the Mar Vista parks preschool and is now ready for kindergarten! I can hardly believe it. Time just flies and this year is wrapped already. Laurel enjoyed her year and made a couple of little friends that she looked forward to seeing every day. With our move south, we won't see them much more after this, and that makes me sad for her. Hopefully she'll meet some new friends quickly when school starts in August.
This was Laurel's teacher, Judy. Not the typically preschool teacher "look" but she was wonderful with the kids and always had creative crafts for them and fun activities and games. For just a parks program, it was a great one and I'm so glad we stumbled across it.
Laurel's class was about 20 kids, 3 days per week. After we moved, we did drive up those three days per week to go to school. I would take Audrey with me to the shop while Laurel was at school and then we'd pick up and drive back. I am relieved we don't have to make that trek together anymore. Laurel was a trooper with the drive though. It really wasn't far - 30 miles, but with traffic, the commute was completely unpredictable. Thank goodness for the car pool lane!
On Laurel's last day, they had their typical "show" with a handful of songs. Then each child was called to receive a "diploma".
