Blame Facebook. I've been playing over there way too much!
Everything has been going well. School is great; the kids are doing awesome. Kaleigh received an award at the first assembly of the year for showing great caring and compassion for her friends and teachers. I was so proud! She's received this award 3 years in a row now! She's also enjoying her hip-hop class with her friend, Payton. And she's always bike riding with her friend, Lillia, after school.
Garrett is doing really well. He's learning his letters...they do 1 a week, and so far he has learned M, A and P! And he sings all the songs this year. Last year he was really quiet. Still working on the potty training. And he's going on a field trip next week to a pumpkin farm for a hayride. He has so many friends, too. His teacher from last year said that he has to skip school some day and come in because all the kids are asking for Garrett. We'll have to blow off a day sometime soon!
Thomas is doing really well, too. His teacher is trying to find harder work for him to do and is giving him a new book series to start next week. He really seems to "get" Thomas, and Thomas is loving school. He's even playing the trumpet this year! And he's joined our CYO Basketball team...AND he came in 2nd in a townwide cross country (1 mile) race out of all the 4th graders that ran! He's also doing much better with friends and has "a lot of good friends" according to his teacher.
And Braeden...well, Braeden still doesn't sleep well. He's still not eating enough and I'm afraid of his doctor's appointment which is coming up in two weeks! Besides that, he's saying lots of stuff now (mom, daddy, eat, no, what's that, doggy, kitty, up...and more that I can't think of right now). He's got 5 1/2 teeth and I have a feeling more are coming soon!
I have a feeling this is going to be a great year for my superstar kids!
