Preschool Programs 2015

Preschool Program Day, for me, is like Christmas, my birthday, all of my graduations, Easter and New Years all rolled in to one. 

Not to over-exaggerate, but I LOVE them. 

I love seeing all of the children and their energy, nerves, smiles, dance moves, collaboration, pride and silliness. 

I  love seeing a year's worth of growth, learning, development and teamwork (from the teachers and the classmates) come together for a half-hour of showmanship. 

I love hearing little voices sing and shout about the world, things they know and God's love for us. 

I love it all!!

This year was epic because for the first (and only) time I got to experience this as a parent TWO DAYS IN A ROW!

Both programs were adorable and I loved every single second of the programs and art shows.
Jay's was Thursday and Lizzy's was Friday. 

Some Highlights:
1. West kids in the back row now and forevermore. I hope they like it there. 
2. I wish it was okay for Jay to wear his hat like this all the time. Its perfection. 
3. Lizzy took a bow between every song. I loved it every time. 
4. Who knew Lizzy was the tallest out of all of the twos (now threes!)? That was surprising. 
5. Lizzy's bow game was strong. I actually thought we were going "simple" for the show, turns out she had the biggest bow of the bunch.
6. I just love watching all of the kids look around and find their own people. They are all so proud.
7. I messed up (forgot to press record) for part of Lizzy's performance and missed a good 3 or 4 songs including the sweetest Jesus Loves Me I've ever heard and Wheels on the Bus. Its a bummer I cant share those here, but I have then deep in my memory bank. 
8. Everyone told me how much they enjoy watching Jay at these programs, how funny he is and how they love his expressions. I humbly agree. 
9. His teacher also told me that he did about half of the show in different, various accents and she was sitting right next to him and had to keep from laughing the whole time. 
10. They are so proud of their performances. I don't think they get it from their Dad! ;)

The fours presented a "Barn Yard" program and I knew it would be awesome the day I got the note home telling me Jay was to wear a red shirt and denim shorts to be a Farmer. Yessss!

This was our carpool selfie pre-program. The excitement was palpable!
Scroll down for some videos of Jay's show.

Lizzy's Music and Movement show was the cutest!

Lizzy was not feeling well the morning of her show, thus she was not into taking pictures at all afterwards. I loved being there with her and Dede also came to cheer her on. She loved the show but the second it was over it was like a little virus took hold for the weekend. Way to be a trooper Lizzy! "The show must go on!"

And now for your viewing enjoyment (mainly for the fam in Tennessee)....I give you the programs! Enjoy!

This one made me sad! I've loved Jay's preschool and this Goodbye really got me!

Thanks for sharing my most favorite day(s) of the year!! I really could watch these kids every week--I just adore all that they learn and love seeing them have fun together.

  1. A great read! Only few preschools provide programs such as art activities to hone several essential skills in a preschooler. Through group art activities, a preschooler can develop their social skills, observation skills and decision-making abilities. For more details on preschool program, you can visit
