This week marked the start of the new school year. Both Colin and Ella started school Monday. However, because of teacher/pupil assesments, Kindergarteners start next week. Micah had really anticipated starting Kindergarten. When his brother and sister got togo to school and he didn't, it didn't go so well. Monday was a rotton day for him. But we met with his teacher yesterday. She'll be wonderful. She even sent Micah home with some reading homework. He was so excited he read them all that very day!
Colin loves 2nd grade. I got to go in yesterday to volunteer. I just that, when he finishes his work early, there will be things for him to do. I am concerned about him being challenged enough. I'll have to keep an eye on that.
Ella has had a great couple of preschool days. She also does a movement class, which she enjoys. No potty accidents so far. She told me that when she goes to preschool she just won't go to the bathroom until she gets home. Try as I might, I couldn't convince her she just may need to go there. I think she's making a good adjustment, though. She told me she even went potty one day. Hooray!
Mira Catherine is a talker. She just babbles. She does say some coherent words, but most of it is just conversationally intonated. It's pretty funny. The kids, Chad, and I try to get her to say more by asking, "Is that right?" "And then what happened?" And then she knows we're fooling and will laugh and stop doing it.
So I've been busier this past week, which is why I haven't posted. It's going to be like this from now on. Start the day at 6:30 am, with maybe this small break in the middle of the day. So the posts may be slower-coming.
