Long Weekend Coming up!

Well it has been a while since I have blogged... I have stayed extremely busy lately and haven't found the time to sit down at a computer to do much other than things for work... grades, school website, school blog, etc, etc, etc. I am however ready for a long weekend. We have plans to get together with friends and just relax a little! I am excited about that!!!

On another subject... Gavin has been on a roll about spelling lately. He wants to know how to spell everything. Of course he is starting with the basics... mom, dad, cat, dog... but he is really excited about it, so of course, being a teacher I am running with it! Anytime your child gets excited about learning, go with it! Encourage their love for learning... the possibilities are endless. I am excited for him. He is 5 years old and could have started Kinder this year, but he is a summer birthday and a boy... and the 2 don't mix well! ha He has a hard time sitting still long enough to focus especially when he is around other kids. One on one he does great! He knew his letters and sounds at 2 (Letter Factory DVD- A must for any kid learning letters and sounds!) He also learned the pledge, colors, shapes, body parts... the list goes on and on. It amazes me how much kids absorb if you just expose them to things! I will be glad when he can go to school with me.

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day Holiday!
