School Update

The boys all survived the first week of school. Jake was happy to get back to seeing his buddies every day. He is excited that he is no longer a freshman. Things improve when you are a Sophomore, like in Football you get your locker decorated by the cheerleaders.

Tonight was his first football game. Unfortunately I opted to stay home with all the younger kids while Will went. The game was 1 1/2 hours away and he was playing both the Freshman and Varsity game so it was going to be a very long night. I am excited for them to get home so I can hear how it went.

Tony had a good week too. They didn't really get too involved in any class time. They had Positive Behavior Classes all week. Learning the rules and expectations blah blah blah. Yesteday was the greatest day of his life though because they handed out the laptops. All the 7th and 8th graders get laptops this year. We have been living and breathing laptop conversations since he came home yesterday! He is beyond excited.

Brodie had a great first day at Kindergarten. They spit the classes up and half started Tuesday and the other half started Wednesday. Then all the kids came together on Thursday. Unfortunately he was running a really high fever Wednesday night so he missed Thursday. There was lots of tears when I told him he had to stay home. He was better today and went back. Of course when I quizzed him about what all he did he said "I can't really remember".

Drew is finally excited to start pre-school next week or pretty school as he sometimes calls it. His 2 teachers came to the house for a home visit and he did really well talking with them. I love that they do this and I think it really helped out. He has the same teacher that Brodie had last year and we love her. I think he is going to have a good time once we get him there and he gets adjusted to spending time with out mom.
