I thought that while we are waiting I would update you on what's going on with our children that are already here on the outside:
Mack has started his Sixth Grade year. Middle school next year? It seems too soon! He is once again in the Talented and Gifted (TAG) program. This year for Math, Reading and Poetry. None of you who know Mack will be surprised by the last one. He has always had the soul of a poet. He is also running for Student Council again this year having really enjoyed his term in Fifth Grade.
Jean has started Third Grade with a bit of trepidation. Things are a bit different in Third Grade but she is adjusting well. Art is, of course, her favorite class but she has been showing an increased interest in Math and is asking her mother to make up problems for her to solve. This is on top of her normal homework! She is also one of the highest level readers in her class.
If this sounds like bragging, well, I guess it is. Susie and I are really proud of both Mack and Jean. Rune is going to have big footsteps to follow. -K
