Letting off a little steam.

Gosh, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this boy.  It has been a rough week for him.  For those of you who haven’t heard, we pulled Parker out of kindergarten after the first two weeks and decided that he needed one more year of Pre-K.  He loved kindergarten and he loved his teacher (and he LOVED riding the bus), so he wasn’t too thrilled with the decision.  We got him into a fantastic Pre-K program, though, and I know he’s going to be just fine once he gets settled into the routine.  His Pre-K class is made up of all boys, and they all turned five this summer, so they’re all the same age.

Since it has been such an emotional week (for both of us), we decided that we needed to let off a little steam in the backyard after preschool today.  Parker’s new favorite activity is shooting my old cap gun that I played with thirty years ago.  I only have two rolls of caps left,  but shooting the cap gun seems very cathartic for him, so today was a good day to rip through half a roll!

Good move…I taught K years ago and saw many moms push little ones on…
