Montessori Monday

The kids are staying busy as usual. This is a good thing looks like we are working towards that being our "normal".  This week we have a new assistant working with the toddlers, I hope it goes O.K. for them. This will be assistant number three for them (sigh). Jessica will be with the preschoolers now, I don't see any reason to put her through this change. Jessica is really a leader in the toddler group, this will probably make Happy become unhappy I will be observing her closely. Now I have three children in the toddler group  "M", "Happy" and our new friend that will also start today with her mother who is the assistant. I got my fingers crossed that this time around the assistant and I are a fit. Well onto the activities the children chose to work with last week.
