I'm not very good at saving papers, so instead I like to snap pictures of their school work so I'll always have it--since it's date/time stamped I have a prompt to help me remember when the picture is from, too. Here's one from his first day of school.
Today Henry posed with his picture.
|Henry is very "into" the original Ghostbusters movie lately.|
So you may be wondering about the random red chunks on the back of our front door. I wondered the same thing and asked Henry. "What is that red stuff." He replied, "Um. . . you know the good cheese? Well, it has red stuff on the outside that's really squishy then pictures stick." Yes, that's right. My son took the wax from a Babybel cheese and smeared it all over our front door. I must really not be a details person since I only noticed it in a photograph.
When I initially asked Henry this evening what his favorite part of Kindergarten was so far, he said, "Um. When I go home." I, of course, asked him to elaborate. "Because when I sit on the carpet it boring. No toys to play with." Poor Henry goes to a half-day Kindergarten, which means that there's no time for play. I didn't give up there, though. I asked him again about five minutes later, and here is his response:
Would you like to see the schoolbus he is talking about? Well, here it is:
Henry also did a math worksheet today. I was rather proud that he did it correctly, but of course I don't know if he had assistance at any point. I know he sure corrects me if I promise him six candies and only give him five, though, so the kid has some number sense.
My boy is getting so big. I'm not one to get all teary-eyed, but I do get just a little sniffle when Henry's baby pictures pop up and I think of that little baby in grade school.
