Seth at Four Years and Four Months Old: Pajamas All the Time!

Seth has had a great start to the year with his second year of Tiger School. His teachers, Ms. Cathi and Ms. Barbara, are amazing, and we are so blessed that Seth gets to have another year of pre-school with them before he heads off to kindergarten next fall. (sniff sniff, can't believe he will be in kindergarten next fall!) He had a great conference at the end of last year, when Ms. Cathi provided us with this amazingly organized binder of Seth's work that she had put together throughout the year. It was so neat to see how he had progressed in terms of being able to write his name and draw a person, among other things, since the year started. They confirmed a lot of things we were seeing at home in terms of Seth always being interested in stories, having a good attention span and auditory memory, and starting to understand some sight words and phonics.

Since we are midway through September, we wanted to catch up on the rest of the events of the summer before we start into pictures of apple and pumpkin picking! We had a great summer, and no better way to describe it than through pictures!

Video Highlights From the Summer

Here are a few great videos from our summer. It is fun to be able to show what the boys have been up to.

This video shows some of Seth's progress at swimming lessons.
