School is coming to a close for all of us.

T and M each have seven days left after today.

I have two half days of work left.

And today was H's last day.
What? You didn't know that H was already in school.
Oh he is, indeed. One can never start learning too early.
H and I not only were in Parent/Child swimming lessons, which we failed. (I think it had more to do with him being the youngest in the class than actually "failing", or at least that's what I'm telling myself because really this kid is a FISH and hey, I'm not a bad swimmer myself. But I do know that he has to be three to go to the next level. I'm thinking that's the deal. Right?)
But besides swimming, H and I have also been in an ECFE class through our school district. Early Childhood Family Education has many mom and me classes throughout the year. It was actually something I've been looking forward to doing since I was pregnant.

In the great state of MN, ECFE is a big deal. In our community, ECFE is a very big deal.

We've been in a class called "Side By Side" which is for children ages 1-3 and they go to school "side by side" with a parent, grandparent or even the nanny. It's been an hour long class once a week for the last six weeks and H and I for the most part have enjoyed it.
H of course was the youngest in this school as well, which only posed a problem when it came to painting (He wanted to suck on the paintbrush.) and the sensory table being filled with corn. (My son obviously tried eating the corn, which was not good.)Overall though what I learned in this class is that my son LOVES school. He LOVES being around other kids. Doesn't worry when I look like I might leave, in fact he waves at me like it wouldn't be a bad idea for me to leave.

He has loved exploring every crack and crevice in the classroom. Loved tasting each and every toy.
I most of all loved just being there with him. Watching him learn and figure things out. I do admit there were a couple mornings I wasn't thrilled to go. But once we were there, it was great. Seeing his face light up at "school" was the best.

So H, what do you plan on doing now that 'school's out for summer'?

I'd say that means some swinging...

And some snoozing...

(The above picture is really how H looked after class today. We go straight from his class to pick M up at school and he was OUT. He slept in my arms while we waited for her to come out from class. Amazing how a one hour playtime/class wears a little guy out!)

More end of the school year updates coming soon!!!

I'm absolutly positive he did not fail his "mommy/me swim" class. It is because there is no where to send him yet, he is too young. You can both take the class again and it will be a whole new experience. And yesm you are correct, MN is a big state for ECFE, I had never heard of it till we moved to MN, I'm sure they have other classes the two of you will enjoy greatly. Although it does sound like everyone is looking forward to summer vacation. Maybe some down time. Love Mumsy
