I thought I'd share the kids' school pictures from this fall. I think they were both babies the last time I was able to really spend time here.
Maddie is now 4, Luke is 3. Both attend the pre-school at our church. Maddie goes 3 days a week and Luke goes twice a week. Luke loves being with his little friends. Maddie likes it too, tho she does tell me that she already knows the things her teacher is teaching them (numbers and letters and shapes). It doesn't surprise me. She's started to sound out words she sees now and has learned quite a few sight words here at home. She will most definitely be going to Kindergarten next year. Her teacher says that she isn't sure if she is ready socially because she is soo quiet in school, but that's just how she is. I can't imagine holding her back another year. She'd test right into 1st grade if we did that and would be right with the kids she'd be with next year anyways...so what's the difference.
Luke is anxiously waiting for fall 2012 when he will be old enough to do AYSO soccer. He loves all things sports and is extremely coordinated. He constantly wants to be outside throwing his football or kicking the soccer ball. I was happy to accommodate him, but now it's getting cold outside and I don't enjoy lounging around outside. LOL...so I take him to our church's basement which is a gym and let him kick his ball around there.
Anyways, here they are all 'big kid' and stuff. LOL!
