Jacks School Update

Sorry, I have not updated in a while. We have been so busy with Jack in school 4 days a week and AVT the other day and my daughter, Maddie has ballet/jazz on Saturday. We also took a well needed vacation to Colorado, it was wonderful. We got a way without the kids, it was nice, but we did miss the little buggers.

Jack is doing GREAT in school. His AVT went in this past month and observed and was very impressed with the teacher and the school. I think Montessori school is great for all kids, I wish I would have known more about it when my daughter started school. I would have sent her there for sure. She is in first grade and doing really well and feel no need to change anything now.

Anyway, Jack has made many friends and is interacting and participating in class. He is getting more and more vocal in class (I'm sure one of the main reasons is he is getting more comfortable there). The teacher has started using his FM system during circle time and has noticed a big difference in his attention. After the first day that she used it I asked her how it went and she said he was so tuned in and participating that it gave her "goose bumps". His teacher is incredible and so tuned in to him and all the kids. The class size is small, about 7 kids, and she gets a lot of one-on-one and really gets to know each child well. She is so sweet and kind and truly loves children. We lucked out!!!

Also, on February 27th Jack turned 4 years old. I can't believe how quickly he is growing, it just seems like it was just his first birthday. He had a great party.....a pirate themed party!! He is into "playmoblie" now and loves the pirate set. Anyway it was great and he got spoiled!! I will be downloading pictures from his party soon.

Gotta go....Jack got a X-Box for his birthday and is totally addicted. I think its time to pull him off.

Happy Birthday, Jack!

I love the FM systems. I think that's the one key thing that helps James in school. Maybe we should be using it more with Tommy...
