i know some families are looking in this space for information about next year…here is some!
this will stay up there alongside other information too. watch your email for a letter of confirmation including tuition information in the next couple of weeks.
we don’t have a year-round preschool,
but if we did, you know we’d have sent home
a token of love for all the dads.
we’d probably have had quite a bit of baby play too…
with water and easy-to-move strollers involved
in hopes of getting all kids to participate.
we’d have practiced writing
the satisfying word “DAD” and drawing hearts.
who knows, maybe we would have even used
real man perfume to sprtiz on a card?
maybe we would have done some shaving cream play?
maybe we’d make repurposed neck tie snakes?
or a little photo puzzle to do together?
or get really ambitious and make a pinball machine?
or maybe we’d have you in for some bacon mancakes (?!?!?!?)
i’d want to make a “that’s what s/he said book“
for you of all the cute things your preschooler has said.
but i’m pretty sure we’d make you all
supersized rainbow collage ties to wear.
i can’t even find a photo on line of what i have in mind….
i think next year i might have to have
a get-ready-for-father’s-day at preschool.
to all you dads: i genuinely hope you felt honored today…and as alive as a rainbow.

our final field trip of the year was with gabe’s mama who does water education stuff. yeehaw!
we met at our local sand creek trail, heard about what we might find and why we might find it…
then walked down the path to find the water!
with so many adults, there were no boundaries needed.
it was a glorious free for all!
some people didn’t get wet, though. : )
there was a lot of counting of heads and calls for who knows where so and so is and then a quick run ahead to make sure said so and sos were actually there.
i imagine there was some good sleeping afterwards!
thank you, gabe, for sharing your mama! thank you, ms. libby, for sharing your time and love!
i spend time each day gathering ideas…and instead of notes on paper or files on my desktop…i’m pinning them. there is good stuff out there. not a day too soon. i’m loving it. let me know if you’re doing it too!
just a block down the street from our photography studio field trip, another class took a trip to the local donut shop. just like our other trips, mr rob and i appreciated all the extra grown ups along!
when it wasn’t your turn to take a tour, it was your turn to eat a fresh donut! i had prepped the preschoolers ahead of time that we would drink water even though there is juice and milk for sale. but much to our surprise, they gave us juice!
we learned a lot of things: every donut is made by hand, the donuts are made in the middle of the night, the milk comes on a truck, donuts are cooked in a hot thing, there is steam to make some donuts, donuts get covered with icing and then the extra icing is used for other donuts, some donuts are cut by hand with a knife, some donuts have sprinkles.
thank you, drubers donut shop, for a wonderful field trip. you made a lot of smiles!
hmmmmm…now i want a donut. if i wait 3 more hours i can go get a fresh late night one…
