I think someone might be ready to start some school

Yesterday I was able to do a little school with the girls ( and I mean A LITTLE - Grammy has been helping with school around here and I am sooooooo grateful ). With it being St. Patrick's Day, I we all dressed in green and I printed some things off of Enchanted Learning for the kids to do. My little guy wanted to participate.

Actually, when I was printing the papers, the fascination of watching the paper come out of the printer was just adorable. All those kinds of things that are so normal to us are brand new discoveries to the boys.

Tyce is able to color inside the lines, trace some letters and he is beginning to write some letters on his own. Not bad for a four year old. =) We also tried tearing papers and pasting it to paper. He enjoyed that. And since it was going so well, I thought we would give scissors a try. He doesn't have the motor skill for that one yet, but it shouldn't take too long to learn. He seems to be a eager learner and wants to be involved with our projects. It will be fun to teach him.

It was fun to show Daddy all the work he had done. I put it up on the back of the door in the kitchen for all of us to acknowledge his hard work. (My camera is giving me trouble, so I am using my phone for my pictures. I do have some nice new pics on the adoption blog of the boys looking TOO CUTE. Click on the peapod to the right and head on over there for a look-see.)

No words can describe how adorable he is! How wonderful that he is acclimating so well and seems ready for some school.

I think he is doing very well for a 4-year-old! What fun you all are having. I know the girls love teaching him, too.

That is so great (and he wears the Mickey Ears very well). I'm glad that you are working on scissors ... both of my children "failed" the skills of scissor usage in Kdg. One of those things that slipped my mind in prep, they could write/read/do math, but scissors, not-so-much. LOL. =)
