Snow!

It’s hard to believe, but it has been about a week since the snow finally melted away!  For eight days we had quite a bit of snow piled up!  We measured 11 inches of snow! 🙂

The backyard was just fluffy with perfectly white and lovely snow!  I love snow!! 🙂

Obviously, we were closed for the week!  Being closed is sad, but snow like this rarely occurs, so I hope all children had a blast!!

 

 

Walk, ride a bike or drive to The Marigold School of Early Learning! 🙂

We can’t wait to play and learn together!

Highlights from the Preschool Fair!

The January 21st, 2017 Preschool Fair was wonderful!  The Fort Vancouver Regional Library was our place to come this year and the location and room were perfect!  Families could come in and go around the square shaped room as many times as they wished to visit all the preschools they wanted to learn more about.  And I even saw families returning after the lunch hour! 🙂

I really enjoyed seeing a large number of families coming to this wonderful promotional event!  As you know, preschools are small locally owned businesses and we deserve community support just as other small business outside our professional arena.  The variety of choices present for families to explore is a reflection of the diverse community we have in Clark county.  This is a nice event not only for families to come to but for all of us small businesses to come to because it is great for networking and catching up with old friends!

I was lucky and thankful because my sister accompanied me to the event and we enjoyed seeing so many young children happy and full of energy!  I am so grateful to the Mom’s Club because they organize this event every year and the money we put down for our spot is donated to deserving charities each year!  So the Mom’s Club supports two important purposes, 1) holding a yearly event for local preschools for families in need of early education for their young children.  And 2) they support a different local organization in need each year. 🙂

Safety

Today I saw something that some people may not think is much, but to me, it was very scary.  With almost a foot of snow outdoors the neighborhood has been abuzz with fun outdoor activities.  Most of these are safe and cause no worries, however, I did see a truck with a rope attached to the back pulling a child on a sled.  This is not safe.  I saw it again as they were going in the opposite direction and this time as they passed my house another car was passing going in the opposite direction.  The truck with the child in tow was fine, but I still worry that at any moment that child may have veered off to the right and been hit by the oncoming car.

Just because our streets are covered in snow does not mean a road stops being a road.  Safety should still be on the forefront of all adult minds when with children.  I love snow too and it is great to go out and take part in any and all winter activities as long as they are safe and do not pose threat or harm to the innocent children partaking in the joys of the season.
