Like his biggest sister, Nicholas doesn’t like to settle down at night when it’s time for bed. Also like his biggest sister, he is utterly adorable while refusing to settle down.
Every year the city of San Antonio shuts down for Fiesta. It’s to honor the memories of the heroes of the Battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto, but mostly is just a big city-wide party.
The kindergartners had to make floats to pull in the school parade. They got two weeks off homework to make their floats. This of course meant we made Mayci’s the night before it was due.
A couple weeks ago Zeke played the part of the Monster in his first play, Storyland Idol. He made such a cute little monster.
The kids did absolutely amazing especially considering they are just kindergarten through fifth graders.
Every kid got a medal to take home with them. Zeke was so proud of his because it represented lots of hard work.
They’ve been practicing since January once a week after school. As much of a pain as it was to go back to the school an hour later to get him, it was totally worth it.
He worked nearly every day to learn his lines and knew his cues and where to go and what to do during each part of the play.
He’s thinking he’d like to do more plays in the future since this one was so fun for him! Now he’s not just a dance kid, he’s a theater kid, too.
I never know what I’ll find on my phone after Zeke has gotten ahold of it. The kid loves taking selfies!
Zeke had an assignment in school to make a book about penguins. On the back, he wrote “You like this book I ma(am) happy I no(know) you was.” This cracked me up because I, too, would write similar things on my stories when I was a kid. Can you tell we are both words of affirmation?
(Side note: His teacher responding as she did shows just how she is absolutely perfect for him.)
I read a lot. The kids, especially the three little boys, see me on my Kindle or with the occasional paper book every day.
They love to read, too (even if sometimes they hold the book upside down). This makes me so incredibly happy.
