School is going well. Alex is currently fascinated by the Titanic. So he's reading everything he can get his hands on, and having a blast drawing and building enormous boats. The girls continue to amaze me with their fine motor abilities. After Alex who had no desire to write or draw when he entered kindergarten, it's kind of a shock to see how well they can express themselves with a pencil. Boy are they itching to read. I think they're twice as excited about the concept of reading as Alex was.
It's starting to feel fall-ish around here. All our friends are back in school (which means not so many play dates - darn). The fall programming has started at church - which means new classrooms and new teachers. The kids had their annual Labor Day campout with Grandma and Grandpa. I'm working on getting Alex enrolled in the boy scouts.
