such a 1st grader

Your big brother is at such a fun age. I've always been a fan of 1st graders. So smart. So cute. So funny. The boys in particular.

I'm SO proud of how well he's doing with his school too! (btw a BIG thank-you to Grams! I wish I could adequately communicate how much your support & help has meant to me through all of this craziness! I couldn't be doing any of this without you! Seriously! I love you, Mom!)

Every morning Toby is dressed - teeth brushed - hair sometimes - and sitting on a stool in Grams' kitchen waiting for Super Teacher (aka Grams-to you. Mom-to me) to make her appearance. (btw...Yes...we're currently one of those crazy homeschooling families! ;o) Grams does most of the teaching. I get the crumbs...ahem...I mean reading time. And impressed is an understatement of how I feel about the skills he's acquired! My boy can read. Almost anything! Boxes of cereal. Commercials. Words I'm spelling to Daddy!

Today Tobes & I were curled up together on the couch and he was simply sailing through his reading lesson. Story about some kids on a farm. Cute. Story about the flag. Oh yeah...those colors do mean stuff.
Next came his word list...he was breezing through...








...sailing through it...




BUTT-er (get it...B-U-T-T...er. It was funny. Silly funny.)

...which incited a riot of laughter! From both of us I'm afraid! Silly is catchy. Maybe it's the silly that I like the most about 1st graders?
I hope you & I share the silly someday too, Trevy. My heart is aching with that hope!

ok-- so I am commenting on your blog. I am impressed with Toby's progress, too. He really is the best student I ever had. So easy to motivate and wants to do a good job. I have to admit I really am enjoying homeschooling him. The only draw back is that I miss the time I used to spend with my "sweetie petitie"

BTW - what was all the compliments about? You want something-(wink)
