First to Last...Another Comparison

Today is Gabe's last day as an Early Kindergartner.  We are very happy with our decision to send him to EK instead of regular Kindergarten.  His teacher was fabulous, he loved his classmates and learned soooo much this year.  We have seen his writing improve a TON, he is reading short stories with help and recognizing more and more words all the time.  He loves math and will often time want to show us his counting by 2's, 5's, etc. and want to dazzle us with his addition and subtraction skills.  He is still a space nut and will fill your brain with information on rockets, space shuttles, the solar system you name it!  We are so much more confident sending him to regular full day Kindergarten next year and we know he will adjust well to the change(of course on his end of the year progress report he still needs to improve slightly on not interrupting when others are talking...)  It has been so much fun to watch him grow both academically, socially and emotionally.  He has lost 4 teeth(3 that were ready, one that was an oops), grown in clothes and shoe size and has in general just become such a boy, not even a little boy anymore:(  I am getting rather emotional just thinking of all the changes that have occurred with him over this past school year.   I will be glad to have him home for summer!  We are planning many trips to the pool, Reiman Gardens, play dates with friends and the park.  In the fall he will go to regular all day Kindergarten and Ty will go to preschool 4 mornings per week.  Callie and I will not know what to do with ourselves with just us home!  But here is the reason for the post.
