2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,700 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Christmas party 219

May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.

May songbirds serenade your every step along the way.

May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue.

And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.

I am a very emotional person but I managed today, to sneak little tears without the kids noticing. My tears were a mix of happy and sad tears.

I am very passionate about what I do and I’m just that happy with the success of each and every child in our class. The development has been nothing short of amazing. Hence the happy tears.

The sadness comes from losing such a great bunch of kids and families. The kids become like your own when you see them each week. The parents and families have been so friendly and caring and  appreciative of what we are doing at school.

We really hope this program sets your child up for  continued success in the school environment.

We know they have all become more confident. We know they have all learnt how to make friends and share. We know they can follow the routines which come with the school day. We know they will succeed.

We hope you visit us from time to time and tell us all the wonderful things they are doing as they grow up.

Thankyou is not a big enough word for me to use to express my gratitude to our Mrs Casley.

We have been so blessed to have such a fun, kind, sweet, generous,supportive teacher assistant in 3 year olds.

Hayley ,I have loved working with you.It is not just ‘what you do’ but ‘who you are’ which is important to me and you, my friend, are beautiful on the inside and out.

Thankyou from the bottom of my heart. You were a very important part of our program and I am  so grateful to you.

Love Donna
