Getting Ready

I am sure every family has their getting ready for school routine but here are a couple pictures from ours. Aaron wants to go to school so he and I have school on days that we don't go swimming and sometimes we have it more than that. He is beginning to recognize his letters and loves to color and trace.
The deep thought of the last couple weeks is this. Mom I have two heads. What says mom. Aaron says I have a head and a forehead. Can't argue with that to easily. He is pretending some now and he says he has a teacher named Mr Rouseo and kids which vary but sometimes include a Micah and an Abigail. Also he is trying to figure out why Anthony doesn't always live in the apartment of Aunt Cindi's. Andrew is still loving school. He is beginning to recognize words. They are doing phonics so our magnet letters on the fridge have found new life. We have also started Book it. Don't know if this is a regional thing or not. But the child is read to or reads a certain number of books. The number assigned by the teacher and they earn a certificate for a free personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut. So we have begun that adventure and he likes it. Movies still make Andrew nervous - he said he asked the teacher to turn off the Lion King because he was scared *note even so veggie tales scare Andrew*. We have parent teacher conferences in a couple of weeks and it will be good to get the teachers perspective on how he is doing.
Wednesdays are chapel day and Andrew must wear a shirt and tie. It is really hard to find short sleeve dress shirts for little boys but we succeeded.
