We absolutely love our daycare, The Children's Spot. It's not fancy, or high priced, and they occasionally feed my child poptarts for breakfast. But it's diverse and when you walk in, and the teachers squeal "SOPHIE!" you know it's full of love. It's within walking distance of our home - more rare than you would think - and the owners are some of the nicest people I have ever met.
They've recently expanded to a larger space and while the indoors is perfect for play, they lack green space. Regardless, today they had a Spring Carnival, complete with face painting, games, a clown, and blow up jumping around thingy. Tonight I heard more French and Spanish than English, and was proud to know that we were part of it. Roy's granddad came with Sophie and I to this event and to quote him, "Well this is just wonderful. We can really do something here."
All Sophie really cared about, though, was her popcorn.
This is one of Sophie's teachers, Jordan. She really loves him, she's just not showing it in this picture.
