I am so very proud at the moment!!  So very very proud!  And thrilled!  And ecstatic! And if I had a thesaurus, I'd have more words for thrilled and ecstatic, cause that's what I am!  Daycare Licensing came for my inspection yesterday and I am happy to announce to you that our centre passed the review with flying colours!  In fact, we received one of the best reviews that the Licensing Officer has ever given.  Out of a rating system going from 1 to 100 (where 1 is the best possible mark ever and 100 is bad bad bad), our centre got a score of 3!!!!  And this couldn't have happened without such wonderful children and families making my job just that much more fabulous!  I love my centre!  Thank you!

This!  This is what I'm feeling right now!
