James showed interest in taking a bath in "my" bathtub. He was excited to see the water jets and then thrilled with the mountains of bubbles. It was quite the mess.
Another successful trimester for James! He is definitely performing well, meeting his Kindergarten goals in all areas! Senora Kennedy said that he is consistent in all areas. Yay! The only area that he could slightly improve upon is speaking up in class and offering answers on his own. I think this is a confidence/shyness issue.
As parents, we brought no issues to Senora Kennedy. We could not be more pleased with Kindergarten. James is speaking more and more Spanish at home.
This is his self-portrait. The kids' artwork was posted outside of the classroom for all to see.
"We are Friends"
This is George's self-portrait. He is upside down. He's such a silly kid!
I haven't been as good at taking pictures of James' artwork. Actually, not as much art is coming home. Maybe they are focusing more on academics?
This one was pretty funny. He obviously got some help spelling out AWKWARD! He loves to say "Awkward!" at funny moments.

Our neighbor friends haven't been outside much lately. Just too darn cold. There was one warm day when James wanted to play outside and we were lucky to time it just right when the neighbor boys were outside too. James had a great time sledding with Ali and his brothers!
January was bitterly cold. We spent a lot of time indoors on weekends. Jim was awesome about playing board games with James. He discovered this Star Wars monopoly game and was obsessed for a short time :)
I also taught James how to play Mancala. I love that game!
