Number 4 goes to preschool this morning. He is so excited. He loved "school" last year (this is the same Mother's Morning Out/Preschool that all the children have gone to so far). The difference between last "year" (as in May) and this "year" (as in 3 months later) is that he is now reading on a first grade level. I'm sure I have mentioned it before, and I don't mean to sound like a braggart, I promise. It is just that the boy TOTALLY amazes me. I'd be talking about him and be equally as amazed even if he were someone else's kid. Paired with his demonstrative/melodramatic/over-actor type of personality, I think he is going to give Miss L a run for her money. She's young, though, so maybe she can keep up. I hope so.
On the other end of the spectrum, Numero Uno is enjoying high school, although she is laden with homework. Her highly distractible/unable-to-stay-focused/striving-for-perfection-rather-than-completion personality slows her down a bit. Numbers 2 and 3 are enjoying school and seem to be able to handle their homework load fairly well. Par for the course for them.
And the littlest angel, number 5 starts MMO tomorrow. She has a new backpack, she has all her supplies (paper towels, kleenex, baby wipes), and she has a mom who loves her immensely and is ready to get back to the gym!
