This is for Amy, if she has web access in Nashville.
Garrett had a pre-pre-school play group this morning at the same pre-school Spencer attended last year. About 9 kids in it, and Garrett had a good time. An hour and a half, mostly ad hoc playing, but they did read two books, had an art project, and had snack time. Good mix of playing / structure (2:1 by my estimation).
All in all I liked it, and I actually met a neighbor who lives on the street. Hopefully she and I Amy can set up some playdates for Garrett and Mason.
