Once CW turned 3 he was moved to HeadStart in months. Because of having been in the Early HeadStart, he was higher on the list. So there's a big bonus. He wasn't happy to go away to school, but we needed space. This year he has found his groove and loves all his new friends. I love the one on one time I get with Ivan.
Ivan has a new visitor as our Andrea moved on to a HeadStart classroom closer to her boyfriend. Now we have Kelly. Ivan loves her and regularly gets sad when she leaves. She brings toys and we've gone for a walk in the woods as a field trip during the nice weather we've had this fall. I hope we don't loser her to a new Early HeadStart center opening in Gratiot County.
I like the home visits, and the teachers do the added job of helping us get support when we have things happening. Adopt-A-Family, Thanksgiving baskets, Weatherization program, and even gas cards to get to doctor visits that take us out of town. So, I'm saying that this year I'm exteremly grateful to be a part of this organization by participating in the Parent Policy Council and I'm even more grateful to be a part of the programs with my boys.
