An update on T.

I'll start it off with his school picture:
His hair just keeps growing, and growing...

He's having a good year overall in 3rd grade. Academically, I couldn't ask for any better. He can spell amazingly well, is learning cursive, *loves* Science, is having fun in Social Studies, and is doing Math with the fourth graders (and doing great there, too). He's got the best class (awesome teacher and wonderful kids--some who he hasn't been in class with since Kindergarten), and is having a bit TOO much fun (as a letter home from his teacher showed). He is also enjoying being able to walk to and from school with HIS friends (instead of his sister's friends like the last few years).

He is still obsessed with Pokemon, from the cards to the Gameboy games, to the action figures and stuffed animals. He's being yet another Pokemon character for Halloween (Deoxys), necessitating another homemade costume.

He's got a wonderful, fun, active group of friends and he's finally on a soccer team that appreciates him for what he can offer (a strong defensive kick) without harassing him for what he cannot offer.

He's sharing a bedroom with M. and is (mostly) being a good sport about that. He alternates between being a protective big brother and a bossy big bully :)

And now I'll finish with a silly picture of what he'd look like with a moustache:

Shhhhh - don't tell him I said so - but he's adorable.

Sounds like a great year for him! Don't you love it when it all comes together for one of your kids?

It's so nice to hear of one that's really centered for a while. It's also nice that you've written this down for those times that are a little. . . rougher around the edges.

I'm glad he's having such a good year. I agree - he's adorable.
