VERY quick recap...
So I was trying to decide how I was going to play catch up after slacking for so many months. Where I would like to go back to each and every month, that just doesn't seem realistic for two reasons; it would take me a really long time (and time I don't have a ton of) and Chris is in Germany right now and when the kids go to bed, I GO TO BED. (except for right now because I am trying to catch my BlogSpot up!) Anywho...what I decided to do was to update in sections based on each of the kids and then Chris and I. Here goes nothing! Landon: My sweet growing boy is now halfway through first grade and I just can not believe it. He has come so far from the beginning of his school career and we are so proud of him. He has his days and weeks even when his anxiety seems to take over but for the most part, he is thriving and full of confidence (most of the time). He has tried our for plays and battle of the bands at school, he LOVES soccer and is currently playing basketball. He is a great big brother when he wants to be but gets overstimulated very easily and when he's done....he's done! He had a great summer but was ready to get back into the swing of things with school and ROUTINE. The kids thrives on routine and tries his best to control his every minute of everyday and he is learning that in life, you just can't do that all of the time. He is pretty hard on himself when it comes to school and academics. If it's not 100% then it's not good enough. For some that is a great way to get through life and thrive and I hope he finds the positive in that sort of attitude. However, I believe there is a fine line between striving to do your best and trying to be perfect all the time. That is something we are working on daily through school and activities that challenge him. We are planning to move in the VERY near future (stay tuned for that post) and Landon and Alexa will be going to public school for the first time. Don't ask me about it and don't talk to me about it because I am not ready and I am very nervous. Landon, as well is very nervous and has been asking questions, which is good, but is also showing signs of anxiety and I am trying my best to think really hard about the way to converse about this BIG change. Overall, the past several months for Landon have been some of the best and we are blessed with a silly, goofy, energetic little guy that never stops making us laugh. First day of First grade
