First day of School 2011

 How is Andrew in the 3rd grade?  His teacher this year is Mrs. Baur and he is out in a portable for the first time.  He likes his teacher, her name is Andrea and she is from Texas.  The best part is she doesn't believe in sending home a load of homework, yay!  It takes Andrew a couple of weeks to adjust to a new school year, but is doing great now.  Already he has made improvements with his reading.  He loves learning about World War II so we have gone through a lot of stories with him.  He earns "Cool Kid" points at school and the other day he told me that he and the girl next to him share their points so they can get better stuff.  He is a clever kid and I am proud of him.
 Ella is now going to school all day with her brother and she loves it.  Her teacher is Mrs. Barbano and her best friend is in her class, lucky girl.  She loves taking her lunch and going out to recess.  She is always happy to go to school in the morning and happy when she returns.  Which is very refreshing!  Ella is great at making friends.  She is making progress with her reading too, I'm hoping to get her to love reading so it's not a struggle.
Time sure does fly, I'm trying to keep up.  Sure do love these two kiddos :)

I have a Cub Scout

This last pack meeting Andrew earned his Wolf in cub scouts.  I am pretty clueless when it comes to scouts and I am grateful for Steve who takes the time to help Andrew.  Lucky kid gets to go to scouts with a great group of crazy 8 year olds!  We are proud of you Drew, good job!
