The Kindergarten Buzz

The kids new kindergarten teacher, Mrs Sanchez, sent home a questionnaire for the parents to fill out on their child(ren). I had Mike help me with this. It was really fun to do once we caught on and got into the swing of it.  I love how unique each of our children are. I also love that their teacher recognizes that and appreciates it. She says that they are always independent of each other and if they do play together, it is because there is a common interest in the activity they are doing, not because they are trying to be near their sibling. I LOVE that they are so secure with themselves.
(I completed a questionnaire for Annie too.)
