End of the Year Preschool Party


This week we celebrated the end of preschool with a get together at the Splash Pad. All the older siblings are out of school, so they came along for the lunch and party. One of my friends compiled all the teacher’s praise for each student onto a certificate, and read the comments aloud. Natalie’s focused on her enthusiasm and artistry. She was beaming the whole time.




The last day of school I had the students pose with different objects to make up the ABC’s. I took emails from the field trips and lessons throughout the year to make up all the letters, then formatted it with a simple letter and caption, 4 to a page. Printed on brochure paper (glossy two sided paper not quite as stiff as cardstock), with a laminated cover. It was a huge hit. What kid doesn’t want to see themselves in a book? It was fun to reflect on the year behind and how much they’ve grown. If I do something similar in the future I’ll be sure to put my pictures in preschool folder on my computer each time I upload pics, and email all the Moms to get pictures the last month of school.

Last but not least the kids presented their moms with necklaces they made from wooden beads. Here’s Natalie posing with me wearing the necklace. You know, right behind some kids head. We took more shots, but Natalie’s eyes are closed, the Daley curse. Is there a photoshop action to open kids eyes? J/K.



Hooray for preschool! It’s been a great year.

Around the Daley house, in the month of May….


John and I celebrated 9 years together at a local restaurant. The next weekend it was all about Mormon Prom. John’s calling in the Stake  YM  presidency warranted his participation. My friend Sarah and I crashed the party (her husband is in the presidency too). We danced a little, John and Jeremy made a few hundred snow cones, we marveled at the light show…and got a dance picture taken.

Fun times. Even if we left an hour early. Getting old I tell ya.





Other news- Leo got a haircut, everytime I cut his hair he looks like such a different kid.  He’s becoming Natalie and Sophia’s little shadow, following them around, picking up leftover cookies and doing whatever they do (if it looks fun enough). IMG_2054

Leo’s newest words are READ! and Book! So that’s what we do all the time. Natalie can’t read but has memorized most of our top books, and she tells a dang good story, so she entertains Leo.


Also, pool noodles mean lots of fun sword fights. And schools out means camping in the playroom.



Last but not least, the last day of May was the last day of school. Sophia got an award for having all A’s all year long. So proud of her and all her hard work this year.  Natalie can’t wait to go to Kindergarten next year and join in on the fun. That is, when she’s not saying she’s sad preschool is over and scared that she won’t make friends. But mostly excited.

We’ve been busy this week- chores every morning, piano and reading lessons, then a place to go and a thing to do almost every day. I’m sure I’ll do a mega post in a few weeks with evidence of all the things they’ve enjoyed.
