Preschool is going so well for Ashlea at the moment.
On Friday she did so well that Mrs Cook made her a certificate acknowledging how many new things she tried that day. How precious are these certificates - so rare and hard won. Apparently Ashlea:
- walked in her kaye walker
- climbed the ladder and slid down the slide
- kicked a ball
- rode a hobby horse
- crawled with a lot of other children
- played crawling hide and seek with 2 children
- named pictures
- identified starting sounds
- made a spatter painting
- sat in her new preschool chair
The thing on that list that warms my heart the most is hearing how the other children were playing and interacting with Ashlea. Apparently Ashlea was crawling on the floor and a bunch of other kids started crawling with her. When she stopped and rolled over - as she does regularly - they would all stop and roll over too. How cute. One of the teachers got a little moment of it on film for me but I don't think I can show it as we all just signed a waiver saying we wouldn't post pics of other people's kids on the web. Sigh.
When I arrived at preschool pickup, one little boy said to me:
She's a very fast crawler!
How gorgeous. No comment about her wheelchair or walker, just about how good a crawler she was.
