Kate started a preschool prep class as the kids' gym. She was SOOOO excited to get to go to school and absolutely loved it. I talked with her teacher after her second class, telling her I wasn't sure how Kate would do since she has had a hard time separating from me in the past. She told me that not only was she fine, she is the leader of the pack in the class. I guess she is always the first kid ready to try what they are doing and tells them that she can do it by herself--she doesn't need any help. Apparently she's ready to be a little more independent!
