I'm not sure if I told y'all about S's school this year, so here's an update. She started a half-day Montessori program in the fall, and has loved it pretty much from Day 1. This coming fall she'll start full days, it's going so well.
In the meantime, each classroom learns about a country every school year. The learning culminates in a party of sorts for the parents. This year S's class learned about Colombia. Since the end of 2013 I've heard about how she loves to dress up in Colombian clothes every morning with her classmates. S and her friends made corn cakes and Colombian coffee (they ground the beans themselves!) and had us come visit. Here are a couple of pictures from my visit. S is wearing a Colombian shawl, and the second picture shows the flowers she made for me. Love!
