School went well for both kids today. W has a trip coming up next week to some "fun factory". I hope I can chaperone. I'm too nervous to let him go without me. At home, J worked in her new activity book, doing crossword puzzles, wordfinds, coded messages, and fill-ins on animals, nature, and the parts of a rain forest. Each page is prefaced by an informative paragraph with highlighted vocabulary words. She did about 5 or 6 pages while I read my own book nearby. After about 30 minutes she asked me to check out how cool the book was and we did a few pages together.
W had hip-hop class tonight. He really missed it over the vacation! Here he is (the little one in the red shirt) just coming out of a triangle formation, jogging over to his next spot. Since W is at the front everyone else gets into place based on where he is standing, so the teacher put a blue dot on the floor. W never misses the spot now! J has a competition and 2-day workshop coming up in a few weeks. The workshop is about 6 hours each day and the competition is right afterwards on the first day. She'll be in 3 numbers (no solos at this one) so it's gonna be a looong weekend.
