It\’s that time of year when I start singing the praises of Quinn\’s school, Sundance. I was a bit worried how he would do with 3 full days but this has been the easiest adjustment so far. Although he\’s not always happy to leave home, he\’s happy to go to school and is sharing so much information this year. The other night as I was putting him to bed he said he wanted to tell one story and then read one story. He went on to tell me the story about Little Tim. This is something I don\’t think he has ever done. Repeat a story that he learned at school. Yesterday when we were at lunch he started telling me the story again and I whipped out my iphone to record it. We were in a Subway restaurant so there\’s a bit of background noise but I think it\’s still cute.
I had a big frog he was Giant Tim
I put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim
He drank up all the water and ate up all the soap
Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit
Last night was Back to School night at Sundance. I got to meet most of his teachers and hear about what they will be learning this year. As usual I was blown away and so happy that we found Sundance. When we visited the art room there were self portraits of all the kids hanging up. The children had mirrors to look at themselves while they created their self portrait. Quinn\’s teacher, Ms. Kate, said that Quinn wanted to add four eyes to his portrait. Ms. Kate asked him to look in the mirror to see how many eyes he had. He said two but was very disappointed because he wanted to be an alien.
The teacher drew the outline for the face and neck and the kids did everything else. Quinn doesn\’t really love to draw these days so I was very pleasantly surprised by this.
