Today Eden had her Community Helper Fair at preschool. They have been learning about community helpers all month and they always end the unit by dressing up as a community helper (she dressed up as an optometrist, of course!) and pretending to do some of the jobs that can be found in their neighborhood.
I was not sure how Eden would react to the different stations (because let's face it- we all know that she is not always a willing participant in new activities!), but she did GREAT! She got to be paired with one of her favorite classmates, Noah, and had a fun time with him at the fair. Not one tear was shed and it was nice for me to get to see her interact with other students in a school setting. She is thriving in Miss Tammy's class this year which is such a comfort when you have a child who is painfully shy.
