Family Friday

This morning was Family Friday at B's school. It's a really cool thing they do every month to help the parents stay super involved. He got to make a timeline of his life and talk about it with his class. (Super cute except for when he opened the glue and started sniffing it, shrugged and said "smells good." All I could think about was Dee Dee Ramone.) I like how laid back his class is and all the cool things they do. Yesterday they went on a walking trip to the Museum of the City of New York to learn about the city's history. His school feels like a family, his teachers are cool and there is an opportunity for me to be a part of the experience. They are really working with him to make sure he is challenged and doesn't get bored. They let him read and write at an advanced level and have come up with a schedule that keeps him moving forward. ...And then he sniffs glue and I remember that he's still a second grader and am even more grateful that, above all, he likes his school.
