Thriving...

Kason is thriving this year in 1st Grade! School is clicking with him and this learning gig is finally starting to make sense. We are having very minimal amounts of meltdowns like we had often in kindergarten and his confidence is back up again. The best part is that he is pumped to go everyday...and not just to see friends like last year, but to actually learn. His teacher is phenomenal and has made learning a lot of fun. On Fridays his folder is filled with all his work which I love so I can see his progress. This paper came home one day and it just brought a huge smile to my face...
 
 These two have the most adorable relationship! Everyday, both Zoe and Max anxiously await pick up time for their big brother and sport HUGE smiles when he jumps in the swagger wagon. Zoe and I unfortunately don't make it to lunch with Kason often since his school is so far away from our home, but we had the perfect excuse the other day when we had to pitch in for lunch duty. I mean, it was such a hard task ;)...
 I have really enjoyed being the homeroom mom this year although I must confess that this role is a much bigger deal at a private school. But totally worth it to join in on the fun in Kason's classroom! For their 100th day celebration, I picked up massive 100 donuts of the class...
which they all flipped over! The next day, Mrs. Burcham treats the kids to a secret celebration...day 101 of school they watch 101 Dalmatians and she needed snack. So I made the kids their own little puppy chow...
I'm telling you, Kason's teacher makes school a blast! While I'm raving about her, I should share how good she is at sending me little videos or texts about how everything is going with Kason. Here is a precious one from their 100 days celebration...

In fact, Kason is all boy and gets himself in trouble often. I can't tell you how many times she has talked me out of disciplining him...haha! She loves our sweet little fella and is incredibly encouraging about the phase of life he is in and how much he is growing/maturing even though he is acting up. The kids in Kason's class are so adorable and I am loving getting to know their little personalities better. Each class at Brentwood needed a project to include in their annual benefit dinner for a silent auction, so I snapped and framed this picture of his class...
My momma heart is so full right now seeing how well Kason is thriving. After a difficult year watching him struggle, I'm gleaming with pride seeing him find his nitch in school and watching him regain his confidence. I sure love this hard worker!
