School is in session.


That’s right – we are back! After taking a break for the end of summer fun, the blog is back up and running! And to start it off – I wanted to capture just what happened last week at the House. (Please note: The blog will be posted on Fridays – but due to the Grandparents Tea last Friday, I am posting last weeks today).

Speaking of Grandparents – they seem to have been the topic of the week, as each class prepared their art for the Tea party, and talked all about what they do with their Grandparents, and why we love them so much!

A few reasons why we love them so much…

The children mentioned many different activities that they like to do with their Grandparents, including: playing with trucks in the sand, singing in the car, and working on puzzles – to name a few. Here are the Toddlers of the House decorating their favourite activities.

Very focused on the painting of the truck.
“If we’re happy and we know it, we sing with our Grandparents!”
We go together like…

The Seniors of the House painted their own pictures of what they liked to do with their Grandparents. See below for the painted picture of – “I like driving with Grandma and Grandpa!”

Driving with the G-Rents.

The Preschool class talked all about Family, worked on their letter recognition spelling out G-R-A-N-D-M-A and G-R-A-N-D-P-A, and also got to practice their scissor-using skills.

The preparation for the Grandparent Tea was well worth the hard work, as the day arrived and it was a hit! The children were so excited to present their artwork,  show-off their classrooms, and of course they were excited when they heard COOKIES would be making an appearance. With live-music, iced-tea, photo-booth fun, and lots of happy faces, we think Grandparents tea was quite a blast! And we could not have done it without all of you, and so we would like to THANK all of you who made Grandparents Day Tea here at The House such a success 🙂

Here’s to all the Grandparents, and for all that you do 🙂
