AJ seems to be doing great in Kindergarten & I'm amazed with how much he's learning. We have parent teacher conferences next week so I'll have a more accurate picture of his first 2 months then. He loves doing his math homework every night (no surprise there since Adrian & I are both very good at math) & is getting better with his writing practice. AJ is also starting to learn how to read. He can recognize around 10 sight words & he's adding 2-3 per week. He can read short books to us & that really makes me so happy. AJ also seems to have inherited a love for reading (again no surprise) & I love watching him develop those skills!
Disney World was an amazing week for AJ! I still hope to blog our trip, or at least get our pictures up on Facebook soon. For now, a few of AJ's favorite parts of the trip. He loved meeting all the characters & getting his autograph book signed. His favorites were Goofy & Donald. He also loved every single ride we went on. His favorites were Everest at Animal Kingdom because "the gorilla (yeti) came out & broke the tracks so we had to go backwards," Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom, Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom & Toy Story Mania at Hollywood Studios. I think he also enjoyed watching the shows, especially the one at the castle in Magic Kingdom, & the parades, especially the Animal Kingdom one. He is still using most of his souvenirs & asking when we can go back.
Finally AJ & Daniel were both ring bearers in Carl & Sarah's wedding. They were adorable!! They both looked great in their suits & were on their best behavior that day. They started down the aisle & looked a little nervous, but then they saw me & calmed down. They started out walking nice & ended up running/galloping down the aisle. AJ threw his pillow at one point too, which was very cute. Numerous people commented (& I agree) that their walk was totally "them." :)
