We went to their classroom and toured the school, met the teacher (who taught my kindergarten class her first year teaching in 1981 so it was just a formality), and asked any questions. The kids played in the kindergarten/1st grade playroom while we had our meeting. The boys think school is the. greatest. thing. ever. because it consisted of playing with a bunch of kids. When we walked in they ran away from us and towards the other kids and the toys. No anxiety about being away from their parents, that is FOR SURE.
I only teared up once and all in all Jared and I feel comfortable starting them in the Fall. We plan to do 1/2 days on Mon-Thurs and all day Friday because they have specials that day. They'll start Mid-August. It is a reading kindergarten and I was in awe of how fast they will begin to read. Alex actually read a few pages from one of the Bob books that I got from the library this morning and blew. my. mind. I think they are ready for all the phonics stuff and even math. My concern of course goes back to their fine motor. I don't want them to be frustrated with the writing process SO we will be working on that A LOT this Spring/Summer.
In this picture I said "Eli be STILL".
In this picture I had to say "Alex, be still". I swear photographing 5 year old boys is impossible. By the way their boots were a birthday gift from my sister and rain or shine they want to wear them.
First Soccer game this morning. "Spring" soccer started off with a bang and we froze our tails off. The boys are the young ones of the group again. Alex played goalie and stopped a ball. His face was PRICELESS. He was a very proud boy. Eli continues to love to play also. I must have said Eli/Alex find the ball, watch the ball, where's the ball, kick the ball about 5,000 times. They'll get it. :)
Tonight we head to Target for some necessities and tomorrow church, assuming Addie's feeling a bit better. A typical weekend here at the Rodd house.
