A month of firsts

Maddy had a very eventful month. She started attending Rainbows at church- this is the preschool class for 3 & 4 years on Wednesday nights which is the prep for
M-Pact (a girl scout like group where the kids ages 5-12 earn badges). Although she won't be 3 until next month, they allowed her to start as they began the new session after the holidays. She is so excited each Wednesday to go!

Maddy also started in preschool/day care last week. It's at a small church not too far from us & they have a wonderful program. She has really liked going and is so proud to come home each day with what she did & tell us what she learned.

Lastly, Maddy started a Chinese dance class for 2-4 year olds. She likes going but once she is there isn't all that interested in actually listening to the teacher. They have a recital in the spring but the jury will be out for a while as to whether or not she will be in the performance. It's fun because many of the kids in the class are our Red Thread friends, but it's a new teacher this year who doesn't seem to have worked with this age group much.
