first day of "school"

the little dude all decked out waiting for "school" to start. it's all i heard about all morning before we left. he was so excited.

today was our first day of "school". toddler art time at the john michael kohler arts center. it was amazing and so much fun. the class is for 2 and 3 year olds, along with a parent. the class lasts 6 weeks and will be focusing on the theme of "snow". . . . an appropriate topic considering we just got 3 inches yesterday. today we painted pinecones to look like they had snow on them, painted a picture with black paint on white paper (black, to represent tracks in white snow), started a "snowscape" which we will work on for the next 6 weeks, and strung beads on pipecleaners. at the end of class, the teacher read a book about snow.

i think it was as much fun for me as it was for the little dude. it's also nice for me because i don't have to get out, or clean up any of the mess! we go for an hour, make a mess, and leave! that's my kind of class!

the arts center also offers preschool for children starting at 3 years old. we're definitely planning on sending the little dude as soon as we can. it's such a great place.
