Natalie just graduated from the Pre-K3 program at Pulaski Heights Methodist Children's Learning Center. In the fall she will go into our public school's Pre-K4 program.
After graduation we went to a pizza party with all of her classmates.
Natalie loves all of her friends, but that night she decided that she needed to hang out with her girlfriend "S" because they had matching sandals. The ideas she comes up with crack me up on a daily basis.
She is off for the summer and is thrilled to be spending every day with me. We have lots of fun things planned for the summer. It's going to be a whirlwind of swimming, dance, and trips to visit loved ones. Natalie keeps asking me, "Where are all my friends, Mama?". I tell her the answer that she already knows, that they are in school still for the summer. Her response every time: "But not me Mama. I get to stay with you!" and then she always gives me a big hug. It will be interesting to see how long she stays excited about being out of school. She is such a social butterfly and loves to interact with people.
