Some time during the night when I wasn't looking my little Rex became a 3rd grader. He is doing well this school year. Not that I expected anything else but its always nice to see that first progress report come home with great remarks about how well he is doing. He is reading up a storm in between soccer, football and regular homework. Thank goodness he caught the reading but because I don't think I have the energy to wage that battle every night. He has most of his best buddies in his class so he is in heaven!

|Possibly the cutest teacher ever... I think the school has a plan to help keep little boys interested in school|
Riley started preschool two weeks after Rex started. It was a nice way to transition into the school year. We've had to make changes in childcare as well so Riley started a new daycare and preschool on the same day. I was worried about all the changes being too much but he handled them like a champ. I on the other hand was a mess but that's an entirely different story.

Riley is having a great start to the school year. He is making new friends and impressing his teachers. Since we've all but checked potty training off the list I think he will be all set for kindergarten next fall. The real question will be if I'm ready for kindergarten in the fall.
