Today was Sanjay's last day at Buckle My Shoe before he sets out on a new adventure in California with his family. We sat together and shared our favorite things to do with Sanjay.

Zara: I like to play with Sanjay. I like to watch him sing his songs. 

Dylan: Read books. Books with Sanjay.

Joseph: I love Sanjay! We cook in the kitchen!

Juliet: Play! Hug and kiss.

Angelo: We play animals.

Bowen: I play puzzles with Sanjay.

Samuel: I like to do trains with he.

And we asked Sanjay what he loves most about school- "My favorite is to play. I like things like trains and reading books."

We will miss you, Sanjay! Have safe travels- and we will send you a postcard soon!
