When the trucks come rolling in!
I am incredibly blessed by the families of the children in my care!!! They are the MOST supportive, wonderful people I have ever known.
Each year when the "big kids" move to school and a fresh batch of beaming new faces begin, it's the same.
Maybe it's the community, maybe I am simply lucky, maybe it's God's hand of blessing on my life. Whatever it is, I know it's amazing and I LOVE it!!
This day was just another bit of proof of how incredible they are. During our Community Helpers thematic unit from Mother Goose Time throughout the month of November, we were introduced to MANY Community Helpers. We discussed the Postman (lady), Nurses, Doctors, Sanitation Workers, Teachers, Construction Workers, Factory Workers, and on and on. For the entire month each day was fresh and new, yet all circled back around to those great folks we see in our community making a positive difference each day.
Today was EXTRA special because one of our very own daddies drive this big rig!! Mr. Scott Williams with MoDOT was given special permission to bring a great, big, shiny snowplow for us to climb on, get inside, and explore!!!
We climbed under the plow! We noticed that we are small and it is VERY BIG!
We then inspected the tires. We touched the black surface that was smooth and rough all at the same time. We noticed that it was warm, unlike the yellow metal and commented on the sunshine that was making it a different temperature.
The most beloved feature of this big rig were all the buttons, horns, levers, and pulls. We were allowed to experience almost every square inch under the watchful eye of Mr. and Mrs. Williams. They helped us reach high and low as they left no button unpushed!!!
When our visit was coming to a close and we had asked every question on a four year old's mind (believe me that's A LOT!!) we received the coolest pencils EVER!!!
We wasted no time finding things to "fix" and "hammer" with these beauties!! Each child took one home along with a "Traveling Safely with Mo" coloring and early reader workbook.
We waived and hugged goodbye to the big yellow snowplow as we watched it drive up the lane to a great big, "HOOOOOOooooooooNNNNNNkkkkkk!!!"
of the airhorn.
What a special treat, incredible learning experience and all around great day of learning and play at Woolsey Academy for Young Learners!!
A special, "THANK YOU!!" to the Missouri Department of Transportation, Mr. and Mrs. Scott Williams, and all the amazing men and women that work to keep us traveling safely on the roads in Missouri!!
As always, I wish you well and I hope you get to play today! - L
