When we are running errands and I know there is going to be a bit of driving I ask Paul to grab a book to read. He chose a piano book to flip through. Can't hurt, right?
On Tuesday, the last week of school, I rolled my ankle pretty badly, and ended up on crutches for 3 days. Then strep throat....there may be a chance the universe is telling me to take a break.
May was another month of all green smile faces, so to Braum's we went for ice cream.
Paul chose Freddy's for the last day of school dinner.
So proud of my little man!
And he got a huge ice cream Oreo from Freddy's for dessert!
Paul ended the year reading above grade level, writing mostly decipherable sentences, adding and subtracting, tons of science information, and great friends. By all accounts, Kindergarten was a success!
Paul turned six on Sunday, May 26th! Our church doesn't start until 1:30 so we had the morning to celebrate.
He got a kite.
A Hot Wheels race track
Remote control monster truck
Extra race track pieces
Later we had dinner at Hugh and Lucy's with Oreo ice cream birthday cake per his very specific request.
He got an angry birds sticker book, a mini magna doodle, and punch balls for all the kids.
Then we had a show after cake!
Party attendees: Hugh, Lucy, Carl, Peggy, Cara, Wes, James, Nicole, Anna, and Kailynn (visiting from Connecticut), Brent (visiting from Utah), Carl, Courtney, Emma Jane, C.J., June, Rocio, Jared, Tzuriel, Evani, Cali, Jared, Amanda, and of course PAUL! He is one spoiled boy!
My mom and dad got him a bike, Jan and Ralph gave him gummy bears and money to get a present. Lucy got him a car carrier semi truck that he can store his cars in. He also got money and cards from Billings and Nielsens. His primary teachers gave him a car and a CTR pencil. Mrs. Coe, his kindergarten teacher gave him a card and a pencil.
