School Days

It's been over a month since I've last posted. I'm waaaay overdue for a new post!!

Let's see...

The J-bird is now the big 4! He's so grown up. I still can't believe I have a four year old. We had his party at Papaw and DeeDee's and he got lots of 'Cars' (his favorite movie) stuff. Then it was swimming time! He had a good day.

A made it through his ear tubes surgery just fine. He was a real trooper. By that afternoon he was up and playing.

Then it was school time! We did "meet and greet your teacher" on Monday, testing on Tuesday, parent orientation on Wednesday, and then J had his first full day on Thursday. It got off to a bit of a shaky start but every day since then has been good. After the first day I asked him if he wanted to go back and he said that he did. I was very relieved.

We had a little family reunion in Hot Springs which, even though we didn't spend a lot of time with family, we still had a good trip.

J is really enjoying school. We're getting in a routine now and it seems to agree with him. He always wants to go to school, even on Saturdays and Sundays! We're working on the days of the week right now to help him understand this. His teacher is really good and communicates well with the parents. We had our first book-order this week! I love book orders! (I know, I'm a nerd) Next Tues night is open house and I'm taking off work to be there :-) Their first field trip is Sept. 21 to the Little Theater to see "Go, Dog Go!" I'm going too! Woohoo! Then Sept. 22 is picture day :-) All kinds of fun new things! I'm liking school too :-D
