We’re trying to stick to a schedule this year, which for many of you is normal. But it’s a huge change for us lollygaggers. So of course, I made a set of flashcards so the kids can see what comes next. This is especially helpful for those who cannot read yet.

Finally, for bedtime – a favorite movie series of ours is
Harold and the Purple Crayon, given to us by my mom who also thinks of everything!
Based on the classic children's book by Crockett Johnson, "Harold and the Purple Crayon" is an Emmy® award winning 13-part HBO Family series centered on Harold, a curious four-year old whose imagination - and ubiquitous purple crayon - lead him into a world of his own invention. Actress Sharon Stone is narrating the series and the wonderful music is by Van Dyke Parks.
Each episode of "Harold and the Purple Crayon" revolves around a theme or issue pertinent to four-year old Harold and the preschool audience: curiosity about nature, independence and exploration, fears, and so on. Like all young children, Harold needs to explore in order to learn and grow. His development comes through trial and error, as he takes risks and overcomes obstacles.

Happy School Year!
