We did it!

Elise, Andy and I dropped off the enrollment fee for Elise's new school today. It was good to see that the rest of the family agreed with my assessment of this place. I think it's going to be a great fit, and we're really looking forward to getting started!

I knew we'd done well when we toured the classroom together and I had another look at their science table. There were new projects! In only a week, they'd moved from sprouting a corn cob and looking at bones to looking at birds' nests. Awesome. They were also in the process of taking apart an old sewing machine screw by screw. Exploring and doing are exactly what a preschool should be about!

Can you tell I'm excited?

Actually, the more I think about it, the less I approve of you putting my niece in pre-school.

In deference to your heritage, mightn't you consider going with more traditional ninja childcare?

Duly noted, Uncle Peter. We're kind of after a social experience as well, so if there's a "Li'l Ninjas Day School" in San Jose I'll be the first to find it.
