A is for.....Apple

I can't believe that school starts in just 11 short days! I also can't believe that Michael will be in third grade. I've had people tell me 3rd grade is a challenging and transitioning year. I'm not sure what they mean by that but we will soon find out. Reading and homework have always come easy to Mike and his biggest struggle academically is handwriting.
The director of the childrens dept at church is also a third grade teacher at Michael's school, he is really hoping he gets to be in her class. Other than that we are looking forward to a great school year!

Third grade is when you start learning different skill sets like multiplication and division and higher order language skills. I'm sure Michael will deal with the challenges very well and will have no trouble, as he has a great foundation and is a smart guy! :o) I can't believe he'll be in the 3rd grade!! :o( I remember when he started Kindergarten and I couldn't believe he was growing up so fast. That seems like yesterday! Before you know it, we'll be going to his graduation!

Let's not have any of this negative talk about graduations and stuff! It's comforting to know that I'll be looking forward to graduations for quite a few years! (2024 to be exact!) Not to mention how many weddings! I think I have a headache LOL
