This was one of Nathan's last days at Horizon Hills. We usually can't get him to sit to do Art and the teacher never forces the kids to do anything, but this time he actually did it.
We recently switched Nathan into Pre-School at the local Park & Rec since most of the Mom's in his class had pulled their children out of class because of the teacher. His new teachers make structure a big part of their class which may not be developmentally appropriate by so called experts, but this class actually prepares them for real school and is educationally appropriate. Nathan loves his new class and is actually making friends there.
Recently one of Charlotte's work friends gave us a great gift by giving us boxes of her grown up son's Legos, Construx and other things. Many large sets of Legos. Ben & I have been spending time every night working on one of those sets and Nathan not being ready to follow instructions in order to build something felt left out. So this morning I built him an Alien spaceship out of Construx pieces and he just beamed. It made him so happy he had to bring it with him on the car ride to church.
