We at SWEEC preschool have so much to be thankful for this fall season.
The weather has been beautiful, and the children have settled in and
are learning, laughing, and making friends. Our visit to the pumpkin
patch was perfect, and we had a fantastic turn-out for our pumpkin
carving night. We had a fun time walking to the apple tree across from
the school picking the apples (or knocking them out with a broom) and
taking them back to school. We made a delicious batch of applesauce and
ate it for snack! Today, several residents of Creekside Retirement
Center came to the school to help us with an art project and the
children were delighted to have such attentive "grandmas" to talk with
and to dance along with us and our preschool musical shenanigans! The
ladies brought us some delicious turkey-shaped cookies and we "gobbled"
them with milk! This coming Tuesday, we are having our preschool family
feast. I think that this time of year is probably my favorite time of
year at the preschool. It makes me so thankful that I have the
opportunity to continue being a part of this wonderful program.
