After seeing how much Olivia loves Sunday school and classes at the park district, I thought she might like going to preschool for a few hours twice a week. It's mid session, but there were a few openings so Olivia and our next door neighbor, Mary (who is just 3 months older), started today! Olivia was SO giddy with excitement and kept asking hopefully, "Olivia school?" and,"Olivia back pack?"
When I told the teachers that Olivia has only been here 7+ months and is still perfecting her English, their eyes widened a bit, probably a little fearful of communication problems. But their eyes got even bigger when Olivia interrupted to say, "Hi, I'm Olivia...and this is Mary!" They seemed quite surprised and impressed when she answered appropriately when asked how she was doing...and when she complied when I asked her to hang up her jacket.
The report at the end of class was that she was very outgoing and fit in very well with the class. Just as I suspected :) She is an amazing kid!
