October just zoomed by and here we are in Novemer and the day of my son's first ever report card. I have a nostalgic love of report cards. My mother still has all of my old ones from Grade 3 right up to the point I graduated high school, not that long ago 🙂
Despite getting off to a slow start and being sick for pretty much the entire time that he has been attending school (we've since found out that he has allergies), Lee is off to a wonderful start. I won't get into any specifics, but I couldn't be more pleased than I am with the report card we received. He's hitting all of his markers developmentally and turning into quite the social butterfly. While he was at home with me, I tried my best to get him involved in as many opportunities for play with other kids as I could - hosting playgroups, going to music classes and early enrichment classes. But preschool is like one big playgroup with someone else facilitating. There's music, art, creative play, academics all while bonding with a diverse group of his peers.
This is one of four report cards that we'll receive this year. It will be interesting to see how he progresses. In the meantime, picture day happened last week, there are ongoing rehearsals for the holiday show, BoxTops collections (more about this later) and an upcoming school sponsored fundraising event. It's going to be a busy month.
