National Read to Preschoolers Week

This week Hazel and Gus's school took part in the National Read to Preschoolers Week program. Over 100 people from KCKCC campus and the community came in and read various books to the kids each day this week. Gus has been talking nonstop about all of the different things he learned in the stories. Here is the KCKCC softball team with the kids.

Gus was a hit with these ladies.

This is the only pic of Hazel (other than the first one) that has been floating around campus.

Even the sheriff of a local town came and talked to the kids. He read a book about what to do if you get lost at a store. Gus told me all about it. Really a wonderful topic for the kids to learn about.

We try very hard to read at least one book to our kids each day. It doesn't always happen, and I don't always want to, but it is a wonderful way for kids to begin to appreciate learning and grow their imaginations. Make it your personal goal to read to a child this holiday season- you own, a niece or nephew, a grandchild.... And if you are short on gift ideas, books are gifts that last a lifetime.

This week has been busy at the preschool center. Yesterday Josh and I had lunch with the kids for Thanksgiving, and later today we have their teacher conferences. This is our first parent/teacher conference so I am excited to see how that goes!
