Friday was Rex's last day of kindergarten. He had such a great year. It amazes me just how much the cover in kindergarten. We started off the year a little shaky with a few tears shed but he quickly recovered and never slowed down. The first week of school Rex came home telling me that his teacher "makes me color ALL the time" but once he got in the routine he loved every minute. Amazingly he has excellent penmanship. That must be a genetic trait because his dad writes like he's using his feet. He is starting to read and is really getting interested in writing and spelling things out himself. It is so fun to see him really get excited about reading and writing. I've been a bit afraid that these things might take a back seat to his love of sports but they seem to be balancing out nicely.
Rex and I had a craft evening and made the vases to deliver his teacher's flowers. This is a much bigger deal for us than most since I'm must be the least craft person on earth. I found a super cute idea on another blog and off we went. We actually covered crystal lite containers with pencils and secured them with rubber bands. The picture showed them with these great sunflowers but Rex insisted we get pink roses. Mrs Theilman's favorite color is pink mom and this is my gift so I get to choose. My my my I have a bossy little man. It turned out super cute and his teachers loved their flowers. Rex is a bit sad to leave his teachers in kindergarten but he is very excited for first grade.
