A is doing really well in school. He's so far ahead of the class, sometimes I fear school is boring and redundant for him. His class is just starting to learn the alphabet, and he already knows his alphabet and how to write it, too. He's starting to read! He can sound out easy words. He knows how to spell some simple words like dad and mom. He's become so helpful, always trying to help me with the baby, always doing little tasks that I need help with.
E is growing, too. She's very stubborn, very demanding and can be very trying at times. She is in the throws of being 3. She's also very loving sometimes, and has her glimpses of emerging from the horror that is "the kill-me-now threes". When she wants to be helpful, she is. But when she wants to wreak havoc, watch out!
R's got 2 ruptured disks in his back, full time school and full time work. So home is pretty much a disaster a lot of the time, haha. But we'll make it through. And we'll come out stronger (and perhaps richer?) in the end!
