This is the 4th time that they have come home with Micah. In just 5ish months, it's pretty cool to look back at Micah's journal entries and see how far his writing has come along. Here's his entry from September:He would NOT do the writing himself, wouldn't even try some of the words. Which was fine - we just wanted to make sure and give him the option! It says, "I went to Cub Scouts with Sully and Chickie. I had a lot of fun. We did marshmallow catapults, pinewood derby, water-bottle rockets, and balloon rocket races. I want Sully and Chickie to come home again soon."
Then they came home with him again during the first part of October. This time he wrote some of the words himself!
And then they came home with him again in November. This time he wrote all of the words by himself!
And then last night it was late. We had already done a lot of homework. He was ready to go to bed. And he had only very reluctantly taken them along with him to basketball practice. (He's decided - no surprise here, especially coming from Micah - that it's a little embarrassing to for an almost-six-year-old to carry around a couple of stuffed animals...) So he decided that he would write two words, and then I could write two words. :)
As I look back though, I feel a little guilty. All of the fun activities that Micah got to go do with Sully and Chickie were actually Conner's activities. :( That's just the way it fell, I guess. And such is the life of a little brother...
Fun, fun, fun! We can't wait until you sleep over again, guys! Maybe next time we'll make sure that you get to do something special just for Micah.
