Last year when it was my son's birthday the staff at a restaurant sang to him while he was looking around to see who's birthday it was, hahahahaha, best video ever!! This year, he did much better, and Texas Roadhouse knows how to do up a birthday. This lady yelling was our waitress, and she got a really good tip. ;)
Another big event happened this week...school started! Little man is repeating Kindergarten again this year...our choice. This was such a hard, hard, hard decision for us. The teacher left it in our hands last year whether or not to pass him. He was doing fine with his work but was noticeably under-confident in doing it. I saw the same thing on the soccer field. He was basically a year younger than everyone else (he's on the birthday bubble), and that can make a huge difference in Kindergarten. I saw that with my own two eyes.
A big thank you to Joyce from Catch My Words who gave me so much clarity and help when I was trying to make this decision!!! Joyce is a school teacher, and she was a big, big help to me on making one of the most difficult decisions I've ever made regarding my youngest. I knew in my heart of hearts when I made the decision it was the right one. Just a couple of days into the school year, I've had that reaffirmed several times. He is already showing confidence this year (he knows what he's doing this go around), he's the same size as everyone else now (lol!), and it's just the right fit.
|See? He's got that shirt tucked in to show off that brand new belt. hahahaha|
Because his birthday is right before school starts, he never gets to celebrate in class...or so we thought. Since today was his turn for Show & Tell, and to bring a treat, we got permission to bring in birthday cupcakes, that I
And the school year is off and running, woo hoo!! Grandma and Grandpa are picking him up from school today, to take him out for a birthday dinner and give him his present (they were out of town for his actual birthday). His first time ever going off without mom or dad, and he's excited. It's going to be a good day for my little one, and that makes me very happy. :)
