As many of you know, Olivia attended Parent's Day Out for the first time this semester. We started out pretty rocky. (When I say rocky, I mean Olivia threw up so much on the teacher that she had to go home to change. Olivia then carried a puke bucket to school the next three or four times.) Now, even driving by she gets excited to go see "Mrs. Membe" and "Mrs. Ter Ter." I love that she loves it so much. She comes home and will tell me that her favorite part was painting or playing. She has learned to put herself to sleep on her nap mat (um....why the heck can't we do that here?!?) Her language is getting better. She has formed better social skills, and has seen that we always come back to pick her up. I know that doesn't seal the deal for her as far as confidence, but it is a good start. I can't imagine how nervous and scared she must have been that first day. I am extremely proud of her. We have her program Friday night. The title...."Our Little American Blessings." Yes, that one is laughable to me seeing as she will be the only little asian face standing up there. Oh how I love that face! I can't thank her teachers enough. I made a little thank you gift for them, but it is minuscule as compared to how much I truly do appreciate them. Thanks to pinterest and a little bit of my own creativity, I came up with a beach towel, magazines, a cup with lemonade crystal light packets and a sonic gift card all in a cute sand pail. On the cup I put, "I hope you have a "refreshing" summer!" I hope they like it.
