September 21, 2017

With great pleasure September has granted us some great weather to enjoy. The playground has been a wonderful escape during the day. Our mobile babies are really loving the sandbox and a couple have even tried the slide! Inside the classroom we are all adjusting to new faces and routines. We are busy helping the children gain independence and freedom. The two that can walk are clearing their dishes at mealtime and all that are able drink from a cup now. We even have a few that will fall asleep independently too. If the weather should turn on us soon, please remember to pack a jacket or other necessary items for cool weather. I want all of us to enjoy the outdoors as long as possible this season.
