First Day of School, First Day of School!

Matthew started back to Preschool on Tuesday. What a difference 1 year makes. His teacher said he is doing really great about obeying all the rules and helping the other kids. He even got stickers (only a few kids did) this week on his papers for being so good. He loves school and is 1 smart cookie (in my estimation of course!). He was so excited to go back to Miss Heidi's. When I told him Monday night that he was going to school the next day, his eyes lit up and he said "yes!".

I can't believe next year he will be in Kindergarten.

I forgot to take a picture of his first day of school last year, but remembered this year. I love his long plaid shorts and his cute giraffe backpack.

Matthew made this his first day of school. It was a little clothes pin of himself. He thought it was so awesome! I love it.

They are practicing writing their names this year. Matthew did this all by himself. He has come a long way since last years writing.

See his sticker for being good-only 3 kids got them. He did this glitter writing all by himself. He was so excited to show me this and tell me the colors when I got home from work.

Green gold, blue, red gold, gold gold, blue blue, silver. I am so glad he is back in school. It's something he really needs.

p.s. We have been fighting illness in this household the past two weeks. Matthew was talking funny (like something was in his throat) and then had fevers for 2 days. I took him to the Dr. and he had a severe strep throat and double ear infections. The Dr. said you could see the puss on his tonsils. I went home and looked in this throat with a flashlight and sure enough huge coatings - no wonder he was talking funny. I had asked him if his throat or ear hurt and he said no. He had been complaining of a headache though so I wonder if that was from his ear infections.

Isabelle started getting fevers this week so I took her in and sure enough she had 1 ear infected and the other half-full of fluid.

Matthew is done with his round of medicine and Isabelle has a week to go. She is teething too so there have been a lot of interrupted sleep, early mornings and crankiness around here. Can't wait until they both are clear of sickness. You take good health for granted sometimes.

Don't you sometimes miss those early years of school. I hope everyone in on the mend at your house.
