Anson’s life has slowed down quite a bit now that hockey is over. He broke out his rollerblades right away though and has been playing a lot of street hockey, riding his bike, and playing with his neighbor friends. He was in desperate need of a haircut and kept asking for a Mohawk, so I let him have one for all of 30 seconds then cut it all off.








He is doing very well in school and seems to love every aspect of it. He likes to come home and read to us and is always sounding out random words he sees around. His teacher has the class keep journals each month and I love seeing what he comes up with. Here are a few pages from March.


Above: “I have lost three teeth” the picture is me pulling his tooth out.


Above: “I saw a deer. It was sitting by a tree”


Above: translation “ I went hunting with my dad and my dad shot a deer and the deer cried” he was remembering that from 2 years ago! Can’t wait to see what he comes up with for April

That is priceless. What a good idea for teaching. Wish I would have seen this blog about 17 years ago!

I love the journals. I have to say I just love his teacher too. She's newly hired this year and I have seen and heard nothing but good things about her!

My children have always have journals in public school. I should have done it the years we homeschooled, but didn't. I too, love these jewels their little minds come up with. It's amazing to see what sometimes is important to them that you didn't realize... ~Jess
