I was talking to my good friend Echo about the fact that we don't do Na Kamalei anymore and that I wanted to do something else. We both wanted to do a home preschool.
A little while later I was talking to another good friend Rachel about a playdate swap and somehow we got talking about a home preschool.
Way before that I had talked to another good friend Matti about, you guessed it, home preschool ideas she had.
And, wouldn't you know it, all of our kids are at the same age/developmental stage give or take mere weeks.
And then our good friend Ashley moved back to Hawaii and we like her and her daughter is also the same exact age as our kiddlets, but we thought, four kids is perfect, no, wait, five kids is exactly what this school needs! Yep, five's the limit. Let's do it!
And we liked the Joy School values, but wanted to be more flexible in our curriculum so we added in this idea and boom:
HAPPY SCHOOL was born!
Today was the first day and look at the little darlings:
(thanks for the picture Ash!)
So every Tuesday and Thursday Ambrose gets to head off to Happy School from now until June. We teach on a rotation schedule. I have three weeks in there somewhere where we will learn about the joy of honesty, mother earth (yahoo!), and cooking.
Ambrose talks about Happy School like it's Disneyland or something. I love it.
