Me too Lisa! I completely forgot about the blog spot. I really appreciate that you take the time to do this, its so nice to be able to see the goings on in the classroom. Its fun hearing it from the Bella but she just gives me little peaks of info.

Hi, Bethannie, thanks for leaving a comment. I like doing a little bloggy review of the day each day. It gives parents a little bit more to build a conversation on. And I like taking a few minutes to reflect and remember the day.

Hi Mr. Gurney,
Raegan and I (Raegan's Dad) just sat down and looked through the first day pictures and some of the other posts.
Thanks for the suggestion on how to use the blog. We will make it a practice.
Thanks-
Raegan's Dad (Gary)
&
Raegan

Hi, Gary,

Great. I'm glad you had to chance to look at the photos of Raegan's classmates. You can help her learn everyone by name. Please give my regards to Elena.
