Monday was Junior's first soccer game, because of rain they've only had one practice. Best laugh of the week watching 18 five year olds running up and down a soccer field. When the coach placed 3 little girls on defense and told them to stay there, they took him literally, play going on madly around them, but not one of them moved an inch. When Junior was on defense he saved a goal and has been talking about it ever since.
Yesterday we went to the library, they were having a special day for kindergarteners and he got his first official library card, he's quite proud of himself, took out a Thomas book that he not only owns, but already knows by heart. But it was the only Thomas the Tank Engine book available so he had to have it. I discovered they now have book downloads available for 2 week periods. I don't know how this works, but if I get my ebook reader for Christmas I'm going to take advantage of it.The other day I had a chance to talk to his teacher and asked how he was doing academically, because at home we're having problems getting him to do his homework, that not really right, he does the homework no problem, but he fights with me when he has to write his full name on the page. Now I realize his first and last name are both long, but not so much so that it should cause this problem. Sorry, I'm getting sidetracked. So, she says he's doing great, but has a problem using scissors. I've been working with him at home and he's fine cutting. I pointed out maybe he might have a problem with the school scissor because he's left handed and she blinked rather owlishly at me. I'm not sure what that meant and I was a little afraid to ask. I'm thinking he may have been trying to use his right hand in school because he is a little ambidextrous, but really is better with his left hand.
My computer is dying, I'm not sure if it's a software or hardware problem, but where getting corrupted data all over the place. I really don't want to invest in a new one, but I think it's inevitable.
Aren't you glad I bored you with all this info--LOL.
Have a good one and happy reading.
