poppy’s first day of school

Poppy’s really thinned out and sped up. At 18 months, she’s about the same height as she was at 14 months, but seems much more thin. Must be all the running, jumping, and climbing she does. She can happily run in a circle for 15 minutes, or bounce on a bed for 30.

She’s started school at “The Friend’s School” this week, in the 1 year old class three days a week for three hours each day. Two of her buddies are in the same class, and 5 other kids along with two teachers who attempt semi-organized activities.
