Super suave Second grader.
Stealing my heart daily Third grader.
Always the most amazing kid I know.
Gosh, it’s been busy around here. I feel like I posted six days ago that Connor started school when, in reality, it’s been just shy of two months. P.S. October is going to be over this week. Is this real life?
Connor is seriously rocking second grade. A bit more challenging than first, he’s learning ten new spelling words each week and five more difficult vocabulary words. He takes his spelling tests very.seriously. and so far, he’s aced all of them. In fact, he’s never missed a word on a spelling test. Do I smell a future Jewett School spelling bee champion? He could have his photo in ‘the book’ many pages after his mother who was rockin’ the pegged pants and crimped hair back in the day. Thanks for that style suggestion, Nikki. Ahem. Continue reading

I’ve always had an insane amount of respect for teachers. When I was in school, I was scared to death of them. Surely, a teacher could make or break the rest of my life with a failing grade
B! I’m kidding. Sort of. Continue reading
I remember very distinctly when one of my very good friends told me in third grade that a man that visited my house (by way of our chimney) once a year wasn’t real. She was very matter-of-fact about the situation and I? I.was.devastated. Continue reading
p.s. I left my “real” camera at home on Halloween. To be honest, I’m glad I did as I was able to just truly enjoy a fun holiday with the kiddo.
I was, admittedly, nervous when this school year began. I’m not sure why the transition to first grade seemed like a trip to the moon from kindergarten … but it did. Not only were the kids no longer protected in a separate wing; they had their own mailboxes for crying.out.loud. Continue reading
