Adios escuela!

Last week Brody and Saylee finished school for the year. Oh how fast it flew! This was their first year and they both loved it. They both attended EMECEC (pronounced em-a-keck) which is sneeze talk for East Mesa Early Childhood Education Center. They teach children with all ranges of delays but also have an early learning program which was perfect for Brody.

To finish off the year I made a little care package for their teachers

Inside the milk carton are hershey kisses. The box was so cute, I printed it offline and folded it up. It say's "fresh, grade A goodies" the Nutrition Facts on the side of the box said cute things like, "thankfulness...25%, caring...25%, etc.

Brody's teacher, Mrs. Helton helped Dustin and I alot with how this whole school thing really works. It wasn't always smooth sailing (we had to move Brody to the morning class) but it all turned out for the best and Brody has flourished so much. His imagination is in overdrive and he is learning to express it on paper really well, his pictures are awesome! He's pretty much reading basic words and his math skills are way above his age level. We're so proud of him and can't wait for him to start kindergaten.

Now Saylee, well... she's a whole other story. She has made leaps and bounds throughout this school year. I was SO nervous for her to be in a school-like enviroment. It was really hard for me to hand over control to a total stranger and trust that they could teach my little girl. Saylee was blessed to be placed in a class full of love and paitence. I could clearly see that her teachers
TRULY loved her and only had great goals for her. We are so proud in all that she's done, she's coming out of her box more and more and Carol & Connie (her teach and speech therapist) are to thank for that!

Now let the summertime madness begin!!

Hey Kristen, I want to apologize! I am so thankful for your comment, but I just now read it because blogging has kind of been on the back burner. Yes I would love to talk to you, maybe we can do that on FB. My name is Anne Molino. Everett is 2 yrs and 7 months, and I am staring the gluten free diet as of this week. He has a few sensory issues like he does toe walking but doesn't handflap. Thanks and hope to see you on FB!
