Sometime I wonder if I should try to have my son tested so he can move up a grade. He should be in second grade but started kindergarten a year later when he was 6. This was all because of the stupid enrollment age requirements. I feel like this is really holding him back. Had he been born a week earlier, he would have been eligible. By the end of this school year he will be reading and understanding 3rd grade level books. He’s great at math, he has a huge vocabulary, his writing has improved a ton. Anything he isn’t excelling at is mostly because he is super lazy. It drives me insane. He has some issues with creativity, self-control, and working neatly but that can improve. I also think moving up faster so he can join orchestra or band sooner would help a ton. Music is not an option in this family. I’ve told him he has to take a year of some kind of instrument (preferably strings and not any kind of brass instrument – haha), but if he ends up not enjoying it, he doesn’t have to do it again the following year. I really need to light a fire under his ass because he really isn’t all that concerned about school and he needs to be. He hates doing homework. He has an attitude like, “Well I already KNOW it.” and that’s because he’s definitely bored. We’ll see what happens.
It’s really nice that a lot of people I know thought of me when they saw this tutorial. It shows you how to paint the cutest easter eggs ever. So adorable.
“I love Starbucks hot chocolate!”
This was news to me. I was like “When have you been to Starbucks??” Apparently my 7 year old is a fan and has been a few times with his aunt. We shared a birthday cake pop. I had to post this photo of my son because I love his haircut and he is getting so big and is not my little baby anymore. 🙁
