My little five year old is growing up right before my eyes. I was afraid of this as soon as he headed off to school...I'm beginning to think homeschooling might not be such a bad idea. Seriously though Jacob is loving school...he has a hard time getting up in the mornings and will utter "I wish we didn't have school today" but as soon as he's up he's ready to go and excited. Every single day he gets in the car after school is over he tells me what he did and first thing on his list is that he went down the firepole on the playground. The first two or three days he would come and say "I made two friends today" and tell me their names. Tuesday he came home and said that he had a girlfriend....wow....that didn't take long. He said her name was Marissa then Emily..then he didn't know :) So he went back yesterday and came home sure her name was Madison! I've let him out of my grasp for 6 short days and he's already got a girlfriend...I'm scared of what's next.
Lucas is enjoying school again this year...he soaks everything up like a sponge when he's there. I've heard that homework is horrible in third grade but so far so good around our house. Of course I've also heard this is the year for projects and such to start so we may just be in the beginning where they gradually get them used to it again. We may have a shocker coming pretty soon. He's heading to a birthday party this weekend so he's back in his element.
It's amazing how different the house is with only two around here during the day. 99% of the time Caleb and Allie get along so well I'm shocked. They're constantly playing together and I'm amazed at how close they are. I just love to watch him interact with her...it's very apparent how much he adores her! Of course once 3 pm comes it's chaos once again until the next day.
