Friend School 9-8-10

Ben has preschool at the U on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but Wednesdays are also special days for him. This summer, my friend Emily asked me to join their preschool for Wednesday mornings.  It's like Joy School, where we trade off teaching week by week.  I have loved getting to know the other moms a little more, and I love watching Ben having a wonderful time learning about birds, apples, feelings, and zoo animals with his friends.  I AM a little out of my league, though.  Check out the darling mats they sit on for circle time.  Yup.  That's the kind of darling project made by these awesome women that are part of the group.  I'm learning from them, but it's a little bit daunting.  Oh well, they'll learn to love me for who I am, right?

Oh, I do not like being the uncrafty one among crafters. It magnifies my insecurities. But ask yourself: which one of them could play the piano half as well as you can? I'm sure they see you as amazing and making cute little mats is nothing in comparison!

You've got them quaking in their boots my friend. So they're overcompensating with craftiness. You know it's true!

Do you think they hire out?

Those mats are darling. We do a playgroup of cousins on Fridays. I should totally just "whip up" some mats like that... hahaha. I am sure your activities are equally awesome. It's all about helping the kids be well-rounded.
