A couple of days ago I posted my concern on Facebook when Sarah’s new preschool teacher called to schedule an appointment to meet Sarah in our home. I was unsure of the idea. Why does she need to come over? Why can’t we just attend a normal orientation where we meet the teachers and classmates?
But after some reassurance from my friends on Facebook and the realization that this is done in many schools, I began to organize our home. I didn’t too much. I wanted our home to look like us.
The morning of our meet and greet, Sarah and I woke up with a to do list. After we spruced up a bit we got right to work so that we could make a batch of our favorite Blueberry Muffins (recipe below) for our guests.
There is nothing more welcoming then baked goods!
We individually wrapped two cupcakes for Sarah’s new teacher and the aid.
We had a short and sweet visit! Luckily, Sarah was very predictable. She was super shy at first and then a few minutes later she became chatty Kathy. She showed the teachers her scooter, her room and her minion collection.
I’m happy we were able to meet the teachers in our home. This way when it comes to the first day of school, Sarah will be familiar with her new “friends”.
