Rachel in Preschool

A couple of weeks ago, Rachel began her second year of preschool. We are so blessed to have a wonderful preschool right at our church, and both Hannah and Rachel have had wonderful experiences there. This year, Rachel's 4's teacher is Mrs. Bloom, the same delightful woman who taught Hannah when she was 4. Mrs. Bloom's primary focus is always the same: quality children's literature and music, and teaching them about God's love.

Rachel adores school! All summer long, she kept asking in a plaintive voice, "Mom, why can't I go to school?" as if we were somehow punishing her by keeping her home! I hope that love and enthusiasm for school continues as she gets older!
Rachel's ready to head off to school in the "rainbow dress" she chose herself! We decorated her school bag in yellow (naturally!). Do you know that ball fringe is making a comeback among the preschool set?
Rachel and Mrs. Bloom were really happy to see one another! It's going to be a great year!
