Adelles Preschool

So Adelle is loving preschool. Even though she is 3 we decided to go ahead and put her into preschool this year for two reasons (mainly.) The first is that she is so ready for school. She has been counting to 10 and saying (well singing)the alphabet since she was 18 months old, and shows a lot of the readiness steps for kids to start reading, and just astounds us every day with what she catches up on as we work with the boys. The second reason, and the main reason why I am not just teaching her myself anymore (we had a preschool homeschooling program I was working with her on for the past year or so) is that she needs to be more social. She is so shy and gets totally introverted when faced with people she doesnt know. She just sits there and glares at everyone she isnt comfortable with. To the rest of us she knows, we see a TOTALLY different kid. Its like there are 2 seperate people in there. Anyways- I am hoping that this will put her out of her comfort zone enough that she will get used to being around other kids, and be OK with it.

So this really great photographer from the area came and took school pictures of the kids, and put them up online to buy. Some of them are amazing. I of course forgot that it was picture day, so she wasnt dressed up special or anything, and her hair was just up, but not all cute-sey, but they still turned out good. She has one of the pictures of Adelle up on her blog which you can find here--->

She is the 2nd from the bottom. For those of you who want to see more of her (some really cute ones) just email me, and I will send you the link and password to see the rest.
