Kid Report

I have not subjected you to bragging about my kids in a while so I will now!

Let's start with Lucas. Right now he is very passionate about reading and read 100 pages of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" in 2 evenings before bed. He has a voracious want to read and is planning all the books he is ready to conquer. He has just taken off in the last few weeks. He has even entered a challenge with the best reader in the class to see who finishes the book first! Very ambitious. He is doing really well in all areas at school...math, reading, writing. I love all of his work and the teacher told me he is a very emotionally intelligent kid (surprise) and is very in tune with the feelings of others, almost too much at times! He definitely has his moments at home and a lot of that has to do with the flip side of being an emotional kid. I'll keep him though :)

Elise had her Kindergarten performance last night. Cuteness overload! She did a great job of singing and dancing. She too is doing great in school, improving in reading and her math is excellent. Elise is a very funny kid, has a great and natural sense of humor. Dama and I were just talking this morning about how much we laugh with our kids. Both of them are very happy and funny but Elise really is a natural. She says and does really quirky things. Her swimming is going really well! She is most definitely a water bug. Loves diving down to the bottom of the deep end to retrieve her swim teacher's glasses when they fall off :) She is the teacher's go-to gal for that.

As summer is approaching, we are looking forward to keeping up with reading. We will do the Summer Reading Program with the KCLS again. Also on the books is a road trip, camping, VBS, sport's filling up!



Love your updates. I was just thinking about how much I need to get going on posting things again. I think this post gave me a good push. :) Like Lucas, Alyssa LOVES reading. She's eating books. I have 11 books (Judy Moody and Stink) sitting here waiting for her to add them to Shelfari, which I showed her how to use. I'm encouraging her to list books she's read in there to keep track. So far she already has about 45 books. She can't wait for the summer reading program either. If only she did better in math, which just doesn't come naturally for her. Hard for me to understand since I always loved math.

Anyway, loved your update and when can we get together again?? :)


Oh and I forgot to mention that Alyssa got all 4 "Diary of a Whimpy Kid" books and finished one a day until she was through them all! Crazy!
