He was and still is in love with school. It was one of the first things he asked about this morning.
This week we are concentrating on the letter "A", the number "0", and our five senses. He has the senses and zero down pretty well already.
I am surprised at how easily some things stick and how some things are just harder to grasp. Literally, he has the hardest time holding his pencil. I did not think about it but he has never really held one to write with, just crayons and markers for coloring. He did a little better today but seems to want to hold it from the very top all the time.
His coloring skills have significantly improved over the summer. I'm so proud of him.
We drew A's in rice and shaving cream. He kept making his A's look like H's. Today we worked on "making the lines meet at the top". He is a quick learner but I have to watch myself that I don't try too long to make a point. After about 6 minutes or so he is ready to move on to another related topic.
Lastly I thought it would be fun to write down some of the things he said since starting school a whole 2 days ago.
Wes "A aaa Peanut"
Me "Nope, A aaa Apple"
Wes "Oh yeah, I know, A aaa Daddy"
"Can we be done with this. I want to run around like crazy."
"Please put Peanut (Felicity) to bed. I wanna do school."
"Oh Mommy you are the best Mommy. You are smart. You make me smart like Daddy."
"Hey Daddy, I have senses."
"Zero is none. But I want some."
"Mommy, you have zero, that mean none, trains on your forehead."
