Thundercake !

It was hard to get out of bed this morning with the gentle sound of the rain hitting the mud kitchen outside our bedroom window.  But alas we did and it was a wonderful day. As the children arrived today there were smiles … those great big smiles were  sometimes wearing  a raincoat and new […]

Assessments

I have a love/ hate relationship with assessments.   A developmental assessment is required of all children enrolled in an ABC program within 45 days of enrollment.  I do another assessment at the end of the year because what good is the assessment without something to compare it to ?   So , I hate […]

Thunder Cake

Today has been a bit of a rough day. The children have had a hard time getting along and seemed extremely high energy.  It was one of those days that things happened and we shook our heads and sighed.  The good thing is… this is exactly what kids are supposed to do. We arent born […]

Thundercake !

  Whew.. it was a REALLY busy day. That is what happens when I am determined to have a good day.  What is that old saying ” an idle mind is the devils workshop ?”  There was nothing idle about today.  We were SO BUSY! We started off our morning in small groups reading ” […]
