I should rave about Bella's preschool more on the blog. It's the best preschool experience we've had. I'm admittedly cheap when it comes to paying for preschool. I kind of gawked at the $300/month price tag in Manila for Addie. But Head to Toe is the first preschool where I feel like we are getting our money's worth and that's the big difference. It's the first time I gladly turn over a check and say thank you very much. This preschool/learning center (and now kindergarten) is absolutely phenomenal. Top notch teaching and such a well thought-out program. Arabella loves it and we've seen such wonderful growth and development in her since she's started in this program. I highly recommend it.
Jane is the owner of the preschool and she was nice enough to ask me (Ladytroupe Sweets) to cater brunch for the back to school open house. I was a bit nervous hearing the 100 people number she was planning for. But I decided to accept. I figured if I never challenged myself how would I know if I was capable of doing it or not. The fact that it was brunch made me feel better about the whole thing. I love brunch.
I cooked for a week straight and by the end of it I was exhausted. But I did it! I was mostly proud of my ability to organize everything and complete it all without a freak-out moment. Yes! I am so grateful to Jane and Head To Toe for asking me to do this.
