see ya Kindergarten

Charlie's last day of Kindergarten was May 28th!

Fun year, he learned a lot! He's a reader now, at least simple words, and has about 30 or so sight words. He easily met all the requirements of a Kindergartner. Charlie has also become much better at writing and expressing himself in words as well as numbers and drawing! If you ask him what his favorite part of school is, he'll tell you "recess, PE, and lunch". My favorite part of kindergarten has been to watch how independent he's gotten.

In January after Christmas break, the kids all had to write a New Years Resolution for Kindergarten - something that they wanted to accomplish in the remaining months of Kindergarten. Most kids answered things like, learning to tie their shoes or learning to spell. My little outside the box thinker's goal was to learn to "hang upside down on the monkey bars" to which his teacher, Mrs. Roberts said was an original. It was a lofty goal, and I'm quite proud to say he accomplished it! He's a big fan of the monkey bars. He's also learned to climb trees, even really high ones... He uses his massive arm strength (attained from all his monkey bar training) to pull himself up. I loved climbing trees as a kid! It's good to see some things don't change. He's asked for a huge rope, so that he can "climb up the tree and tie it to a really high branch" so he can swing... Only thing is, I don't think he knows how to tie knots yet...

Here's to a fun & happy summer... and learning how to tie knots in ropes...maybe by the end of 1st grade??
