William participated in a safety town program last week, Monday through Friday at foothill elementary school. It was from 8:30am to noon each day, a test to see if I could handle actually taking him to school each day. We did okay, but by the end of the week we were all exhausted from being on a tight schedule and out of the house for a good chunk of the day. I'm going to be happy to continue home schooling, I think it's much easier and less stressful for our family.
Besides all that, William had an AMAZING week at safety town! I will recommend it to all my friends with Kindergarten age kids. He learned some awesome safety songs that he now sings at home all the time :) He got to visit with the ambulance, a county fire engine, Smokey bear, and a sheriff deputy. He got to ride on the MTD bus, learned street safety, fire safety, earthquake safety, water safety... each day I picked him up he told me all the fun he had and told me everything he learned. He had a guest speaker who came and spoke on "good touch, bad touch" (parents were invited) and she did a wonderful job bringing that topic to their level of understanding in a fun and positive way. Zachary even picked up on her speech and later that day told William " that is a BAD touch William, no hitting me!". William got mad and told me NOT to bring Zachary to HIS safety town anymore! :)
On the last day they had a "graduation" from safety town that the boys and I attended. Each child was given a diploma and presented an award from one of the volunteers. William was the only one who did not accept his award! Apparently he did not like getting an award for best pedestrian because he wanted an award for best driver! :) :) What can you do. Haha.
