Nonetheless, Dan rented a thatcher and we got to work on the yard. Caden has been anticipating the first mowing of the year. I really thought he would outgrow this whole mower faze, but not the case. Waiting patiently on the step ... with his mower "warming" up as well.
Dan brought his motorcycles out of storage a couple of weekends ago, "monkey saw, so monkey do ..." Caden had to get his "motorcycle" out of storage this weekend.
Caden had his five year well child check last week ... He did stellar on the pediatrician's question and answer session. Knew his address and phone number ... wrote his name, drew a person, counted to 10, etc. He did well on the vision check and passed the right side hearing test and failed the left side (but we already knew that). On the achon charts he is just above the 50th percentile for height and weight.
He had been anticipating the shots ... he knew when he turned five he had to get more shots. The day of the appointment he told me to call the doctor and change his appointment to "100 thousand days". Nice try buddy. When it was time for the shots he was screaming and crying so loud I don't think he even felt the actual shots. It took myself and the nurse to hold him down while the other nurse gave him the shot. Amazing!
Anyway, now he knows he is five and has his shots so he is good to go for Kindergarten. I am repeatedly asked if it is time to go to Kindergarten yet?
He received his second semester report card today and is doing well ... He received all 3's and +'s ... his teachers comments were, "Caden has been progressing very nicely. His handwriting and fine motor control has come a very long way. His name is completely legible and he is able to write it on his own, with out it written in front of him. Caden is going to do very well in Kindergarten."
Where did my baby go?! We've come a long way in Five Years! ... okay, enough Mommy bragging. Counting down the days till Spring Break! ... enjoy the rest of your week.
