Notes in his agenda book in his first 2 weeks:
Day 3 - working hard on keeping our hands to self and not on friends
Day 7 - working on keeping our hands to self
Day 9 - hit a girl on her bottom
Day 10 - licked a child next to him during lunch
Oh Luke Lukey Luke - what are we going to do with you!?? I talked to him long and hard about each infraction and on day 9 I couldn't believe it! I was pretty mad and he looked at me and said "so mom, you are mad at me because I can't be good ALL the time?" Well, that softened me up cause really he is doing SO well. I mean this is 7 hours of being on your best behavior. And for 6.999 hours he was so good. And then I said, "Luke, you can't hit people on the bum!" He said, "but mom, you do it to me all the time!" uh.... he's right. I totally do. I love-spank all my kids when I love them too much to be contained. He might as well have said, "I learned it from watching you!" I told him moms get to give their kids friendly spanks but that he couldn't do it at school. So many bugs to work out in this new world of ours. :)
Here he is on his first real day of his Kindergarten class. He's really loving it.
Here is a sample of his work from his first week. Love those fenders on that old fashion looking car.
We are working on his citizenship marks. It's E (excellent), G (good), S (satisfactory), N (needs improvement) and U (unacceptable). He's gotten Es, Gs and one S. After the bum hitting and kid licking incidents - we made a sticker chart and told him if he got 15 Es we would buy him a Storm Trooper costume (star wars) and if he got a week straight of all Es - we'd take him to see Monsters University. Well, this week he gotten straight Es with only tomorrow to go. We might be taking him to the movies this weekend. Ahh, the magic of the bribe.
Lucy started JOY SCHOOL! Joy School is something I did when I was little. and I've always wanted to try it with my kids. I'm excited for this group! It's a values based preschool and basically teaches ethics. It's a co-op so the lessons are taught in homes by the moms in the group. She wanted to wear her pink headband with her bangs back for her first day. She was so excited.
Joy School group 2013-2014: Daxton, Lucy, Jackson, Jane and Helen. Two old friends (the boys) and two new friends for Lucy.
So, speaking of school behavior. I picked up Lucy from her first day of Joy School and I asked her how it went. She looked at me with a twinkle in her eye and a sly smile and said, "I didn't listen to Ms. Marie" Oh, dear. Well, there's always Maryanne. Maybe she'll be good in school. :)
