Jake started Kindergarten this fall. He turned 6 in June, and was more than ready for the challenge. He's a little bummed though...apparently Kindergarten is not as difficult as he was hoping for. This kid kills me. He's so serious...and shy, but his eyes and expressions say all that his mouth does not. He's a thinker. He's always...and I mean ALWAYS listening, and repeating what he's heard. Even when I'd rather he not. I tried to explain that right now his teacher is just reviewing what they'd learned in preschool, and soon he'll be learning new sight words and reading books.
His response: "Mom. We had to learn about a chair. What good does that do? I think they're trying to make me stupider."
Wife to Ben, who also happens to be the Pastor of a sweet little church in a tiny little town. Mama to three boys and little Lucy. We live in the parsonage, 27 steps from said little church. This is the journey...it involves lots of run-on sentences.
