Izabella just soaked it all in during the story time--she didn't participate much--except lots of smiles and giggles. I imagine she'll do more of that in a few classes. I am so glad I signed up for this class--it's such a great introduction to her for class structure--the next step would be to do a class where the kids stay and the parents go to a separate room--I have to tell you--if we get into this class (called Brighter Beginnings) I am very nervous about this transition. I know we'll get through it--but pray it's as smooth as possible.
After the story time--they did craft time--and we got to make a "mouse that holds the strawberry behind his back"--just like the mouse in the story board. After we were done--she wanted to put him up on the board. Fascinating she made that connection--she was really paying attention! Love it! And I taught her how to use scissors for the first time. She picked it up pretty fast!
Then we ventured out to the children's area of the library and explored all the wonderful things they have there--for us to use there--and borrow for at home! We played with some puzzles, looked over some books and selected two to borrow, and then Izabella picked out a Book/CD package to borrow til next Thursday. We also selected a couple Angelina Ballerina DVD's-Thanks Aunt Michelle for turning us on to Angelina! We were going to meet Papa for lunch to tell him all about our morning--but the class went to long--so we'll tell him when he gets home.
Before we could get home--Izabella was sound asleep--and is still asleep on the couch! All this excitement and fun--exhausting!
Here is a video of stills and video from our visit today to the Library or I'd call it a treasure chest of FUN!. We had so much fun! We will go again very soon--and continue with the class every Thursday!
