We came back Monday night from Huntsville. And Tuesday was a BIG day for my Jester. It was his first day of school. He was so excited! He was amazing. He walked right into his class like he had been doing it for year:) I guess he had seen Riley do it for the entire year last year so he knew what it was like. Today was another big day for him (or should I say, me). While we were waiting in the car before school started, I asked him if he wanted to walk to his class by himself. At first he said no he didn't want to. I told him that was fine but to just let me know when he wanted to do that. So when his teacher came outside to "wave everybody in" I got out of the van to open the door for him so I could walk him to class. He said, "No, Mommy I am going to go all by myself". So he walked off. He kept looking back saying, "don't watch me mommy. Get back in the car and go home". I have to say, that made me sad. I did make sure he made it all the way to the door. WOW, my boy is getting big:( He loves it. He has such a good time at school. I asked him the other day who is friends are and if he remembered any of their names and he told me, "Mommy, my friend's name is (long pause)...Mrs. McMurphy (which is one of his teachers). I thought that was very cute;)
I don't know if you can read it but is says:
It is sunny.
It is cloudy.
We went home.
I went to art.
My baby girl is writing sentences. I can't believe it. I know she is so proud of herself. I also just introduced her to the "American Girls" book series and she seems to really like that. We are reading "Meet Kaya". It is about a "girl named Kaya, who is an adventurous Nez Perce girl whose deep love for horses and respect for nature nourish her spirit".I think she really likes it. I can't wait to get the other books for her. I think we are going to have fun reading these books. Some of it might be a little too much for her. But I try to explain to her and also ask her questions about what is going on. And she does really well. I know what Riley is getting for Christmas this year.Joel finished reading ALL the Harry Potter books this summer so now he started reading "The Hobbit". He was not really interested in it at first. I think he just didn't know anything about it and he had no idea what a Hobbit was. But he sat down and started reading and they actually explained what a Hobbit was and then started getting excited about it. So now he is reading it. I believe he is enjoying it.
