But of course we had to come home and get back into the swing of things. We had 3 back to back to back family Christmas gatherings after arriving home, and the boys started back to school last week. Tomorrow is their halfway point through the school year! The first half always goes faster then the 2nd half! :) The twins are working hard at reading and I believe are making progress. There was a little bit of talk between the principal, teacher, and I about them repeating a grade, to give them time to catch on with reading but I don't think we'll need to. I am kicking myself a little for not starting them a year later, since they are boys (couldn't care less about school) and technically summer babies (if they had come on their due date). But their teacher is a tremendous blessing and came up with a special plan to get them reading better. They are so smart in other subjects, but since it takes reading to do everything, it's been a hindrance to them.
An older friend at church gave the boys a pair of stilts he had and wanted to pass them on. I, for the life of me, cannot do them! The boys can all do them now. It took some awkward falls and determination to get there!
Ben had no problem from the get-go.
Clay's mission in life is to keep up with his brothers. And he does
and here comes the awkward fall
