After a rocky start to the morning which will result in a letter written to the museum… we actually wound up having a quite pleasant time. Well, aside from Neil’s back acting up again! I love that he was so determined to go and meet her teachers that he worked through the pain… I probably would have stayed home. 😉
Quite a few of the kids came with their parents. I loved watching the look on their faces as they realized that their classmates and teachers were somewhere that wasn’t the typical environment. There are so many exciting activities. It was also great to get a chance to talk to the teachers without feeling like I was pulling away from their time with the kids… of course then I just finished the day feeling like I had word-vomitted all over them! Ha! Mrs. L’s aid Mrs. H and I got a chance to talk about Mrs. L for a bit and talk about many other random things. It’s funny because when the class grew to the point of having to split… I was a bit apprehensive about Mrs. C not being in class anymore. However, once I met Mrs. H? I was once again at ease. It astounds me how so many great people wound up under one roof!
At any rate, Alyssa had a day filled with bubbles, a wind tunnel, a science show, and so many other great activities. It was awesome to be able to brin her somewhere I went as a child. We’ll have to go back once Neil’s back is feeling better. I could tell he felt badly he couldn’t participate more. Alyssa’s favorite attraction was the padded oasis. Really? What crawling kid doesn’t want to be in an area where they can’t break anything? One of the student’s younger siblings played with her in there for a bit and the two of them were a crack up. He tripped over her at once point and his mom went to grab him and Alyssa was roaring with laughter. Ah my sweet daughter… so full of sympathy for a fallen friend… NOT! Of course he was fine and went right back to playing but for her it was just hilarious that he tripped over her… better than crying about him touching her I suppose 😉
Our first parent involvement day with the school and I’ll surely attempt to make any others. It was a great day! I’m thankful we got the opportunity to attend. I’m also grateful that her teachers take the time to organize stuff like this! What fun 🙂
