Graduating from Preschool

I know I'm a little slow posting this. It seems all of the sudden all the books I had on hold at the library came available and our laundry has multiplied. I can't remember doing this much laundry for Owen. With Emma's acid reflux she spits up more (not projectile) and now she is soaking her clothes with drool. Enough said about that. This post is about Owen.

The end of May Owen graduated from preschool. We are so proud of how much he has learned and the progress he has made especially in the social area. We had the convenience of Owen's preschool being next door. Our next door neighbor runs a preschool in her home so many of the kids in our neighborhood go to her preschool. Owen has made some really good friends in the neighborhood this way.

His teacher Mrs. Jamie did a great job especially with Owen being an active boy. With her help, Owen starting to read 1st grade words before school ended. We preregistered him for kindergarten last month too. Owen was so excited to be visiting his new school and didn't want to leave when the time came. The teacher screening him said he was such a smart boy.

So he doesn't forget what he's learned during summer break, we are having him do 10 minutes of reading everyday. Half of the time he reads to us and the other half of the time we point at the words as we read them to him.
