Seems like lately I've mostly been posting sewing photos on this blog, and I definitely have more to post but want to do a little LP update as I missed doing his 5.5 update (and I owe one for Eliza’s 22 month!).
Paul finished up his year of pre-K and will be an official kindergartner in the fall!
Here's LP on his very last day of school!
Of course, there was a "graduation" ceremony and a family picnic. The teacher shared a video she'd taken of all of the kids talking about their favorite part of school. LP's was "snack time." That drew a lot of snickers from the crowd of parents!
Here he is with his teacher, Miss P. LP LOVED school- he's such a social kid and he really enjoyed being with the other students and all of the activity. We had a lot of great reports from his teacher and he's already looking forward to kindergarten.
LP also did T-Ball for the first time this spring. Since his father and all 4 of his uncles played ball we wanted him to try it. I wouldn't say he's a natural but there is some natural ability in there if he'd stop chattering to all the players and coaches and focus on the ball!
This spring was the busiest we've ever been as far as activities for Paul- we usually keep things quiet with a little yoga class at the library. But we'd heard that karate can be really good for helping kids develop strength and signed him up. Paul's large motor and fine motor skills are a little lagging behind other kids his age and we're seeing a difference already. He's learned to jump with both feet at once and his hands are now strong enough that he can open and close the car door himself and put on his seatbelt which is huge (and was rewarded with an ice cream cone lunch!). He LOVES karate and will start classes back up in the fall.
As usual, LP is always there to hug his sister- and his cousin! He just can't control himself and hugs, hugs, hugs!
