I've been thinking about this post for a long time. Since Etta started school, she keeps acquiring more school stuff. I mean, how much does a three year old need to go to school? But it seems like the preschools have everything down to a science and know exactly what they want. Let me start at the beginning...
I'd say the preschool is partial dress code. They have to wear the same blue shorts, strange hats (the hats are different color depending on their year), and hand made smocks in your choice of material. That's another thing, a lot of their supplies have to be hand made. Not too big of a deal for the Japanese moms since they all know how to sew. I however left my sewing machine in America and still haven't learned how to sew anything wearable. Therefore, I had purchased a few smocks but had to ask my mom to make several more for Etta. Next year Etta will only wear the smocks during field trips and will upgrade to button down shirts to match the oldest two classes. I didn't bother taking pictures of those since they are for next year. Let me describe some of the pictures.
Things not pictured Etta needs for school: a thermos to carry green tea to school in (aka water for Etta) and a leisure matt (a plastic matt kids use on field trips to sit on for lunch).
Time to wrap up. It's Saturday morning and we want to get out of the house. Hopefully something fun to blog about in the near future.
