I keep thinking that he has many more years of this ahead, and can't help but feel a little sorry for him. On the other hand, he has no idea what lies ahead for him, and that is the way it should be.
He told me all about how you have to bubble in the entire circle or it might not count. He also told me all about getting a good night's sleep before the test, and eating a good breakfast. He seems a little excited about something out of the ordinary to do.
The boys both got their report cards yesterday. Brooks got all A's. I am so proud of him again, only because I didn't think he would. I don't think I got all A's at his age. Reese did good in all of his areas of testing. (Like recognizing letters, numbers, counting, writing, etc.) It is so funny to compare the two report cards. However, Reese needs to work on his conduct. One thing in particular was not instructing other children on what he thinks they need to do. Oh my!
In other news, we are gearing up for baseball season to start. Brooks is being coached by a fellow member of church, so we are excited about that. His team name was up in the air for awhile, but has finally been settled on, "High Voltage." I think that is such a cool name for a team. Maybe we will draw lightening bolts on their faces before game time. Along with these upcoming games, is knowing that I am going to have to keep up with Reese at the ball field while these games are going on. (Sigh!) Last year we put a florescent yellow hat on him, so I could find him quickly. Now, where is that hat?
