Present from Kinder

Today Hallie came home from school with a present for Jonty from her classmates. They had each done a drawing of Jonty and had it laminated on a poster. Some of the pictures were such a crack-up. Hallie's friend Alice drew him with green hair and quite a few of them had given him blue feet. It was a lovely little present.

The principal and kinder teacher also gave him a book from the Leap Pad programme that is suitable for children from 4 mths and encourages parents to start early in developing good reading habits and making reading time at home enjoyable. It was a lovely gesture and that's partly why I love the kids being in a small school. They had even written a note inside to him.

That is so nice of the school to do that! I can't imagine that happening here, the schools are just too big. That's one of the benefits of living in a small town I guess!
