Anyway - I absolutely love Mrs. Kristy and I know Dex does as well. We still have a little scene at drop-off a couple days a week, but every time I pick him up, he is beaming from ear to ear and talking about his friends at school. Just yesterday, we were outside drawing with chalk on the sidewalk, and he made me draw every single one of the kids (they were stick figures, I'm not that good).
I hope everyone that has to put there kids in someone else's care all day long gets to love where their kids are as much as I do. Dex is learning things every single day, and I am just amazed at what he comes home knowing! He sang the alphabet song (really loudly) the whole time we were grocery shopping today. And he sang it correctly! And he can count to 10, he sings and motions to 'The Itsy-Bitsy Spider', knows a TON of colors, says 'bless you!' whenever someone sneezes, and I could go on and on! OH - he knows his colors in Spanish, too! He talks constantly, and I guess I've just never seen a little mind at work before, because he shocks me all the time at the things he knows!
Today's theme at school was "Magnificent ME!" and he came home wearing this crown. He brings these projects home almost daily, and I really do love seeing his creations :)

This has been such a long journey, and I know it's not over. But I wanted to document a little piece of it. My dream is to still be able to stay home with my little man, but until I can do that, I am very grateful for where he is :) Thank you Mrs. Kristy - for helping Dex adjust... and for being patient while Momma adjusted :)
