Ms. Kim

...this woman is absolutely amazing! Meet Ms. Kim - the center director at New Horizons. She is what makes every minute of Parker's day fabulous. Just in the last week I have noticed that Parker has taken off with his writing. When we reflect on our day together, he talks about the letter of the week and "draws" it in the air for me. Perfectly, every single time. They concentrate on one letter, number, and theme each week. This week it was about the ocean and the letter O. I appreciate how much thought, effort, and time that the teachers in his room put into all of the activities that go on through the day/week. When Grammy asked Parker today what he has been doing at school he said "math + science, dramatic play, table toys, outside, cars + trucks, computer, library, and thats all". So stinkin cute!

Moving Parker back to New Horizons has been the **best** thing thus far. It's been 4 months already, where does the time go? The tuition is most definately an investment into his future and education. I'm thrilled that NH is such a great fit for us. Its so comforting for me to know that while I am at work that ALL of his needs are being met - mentally, physically, emotionally, and educationally.

I'm gearing up for spring/summer to come - so Parker can get to the much needed exploring outdoors. Looking at this photo reminds me of how dark he gets when the sun comes out...and how I love how cute he looks in shorts and his Crocs. Which, I need to get ordered so they are here in time for the season. Ahh - the warm weather can't come fast enough!

Have a great weekend!

Parker and I made some super cute Valentines for Graham, Kels & Bodde + Grammy & Papa. I forgot to take photos BEFORE we mailed them out...but Kels has a post up on her blog with a quick preview. Check it out!

I love any excuse to put my scrapbooking skills to work ;)
