This post is a few days delayed, but better late than never. Thursday was open house at school. Each grade does a 10-15 minute presentation of their curriculum, but I wasn’t sure if I could get out of the library that long, so Eve and I went for a sneak peek at her classroom. She showed me around, we did the scavenger hunt, and got full access to the teachers (ha!) until 6pm when Open House officially started and I scooted back to the library. I wasn’t sure what to expect for library attendance, but I was pleased that it was packed for the entire time! Kids stopped by to introduce me to their parents (while I desperately tried to recall the kid’s name in my head!) and parents that I’m friends with stopped by and it was very nice all around. The hour flew by!
I love seeing Eve’s work. Her poetry is amazing to me, and not just because it’s often about how much she loves me. :) Lately she has been sitting in her bed at night writing poetry. She has a great one about the holidays, and the “mom” poem she wrote me a few weeks ago. At Open House she showed me her, “I am from” poem that they did in class. I love it!
