Today I am thankful for Gwendolyn having completed preschool rather than her first school experience being in kindergarten. Though we had not planned on sending her to preschool, I think it was a good learning experience for all of us: new social experiences, new routines, being away from each other. I'm also thankful for her teachers who made the process easier, safe, and fun. Gwendolyn has truly blossomed this year and I attribute a great deal of that to her being in school.
