On Sunday,  I took J to Bookman’s ,which is a used book store with other specialty items. J turned in 53 book reports. He recieved 50 Bookman Bucks.

As part of his study time J reads a book. When he is finished with the book he has to draw a picture related to the book and write a sentence about the book or a event in the book.  He really enjoys writing the sentence. J doesn’t complain or wince in disagreement to do his book reports. He smiles and enjoys learning and doing his study time. Plus, the rewards are SWEET!

J purchased several items with his Bookman Bucks. He bought 5 DVD’s and 8 books. He also got a Trumpet Kazoo. His DVD’s are Leap Frog Code Word Caper, Springtime Fun, Calling All Engines, Cat in the Hat Wings and Things, and Word World. The amazing books he got were Ten Apples On Top, Cat in The Hat All about Trees and five Thomas and Friend Books.

He says His favorite item he purchased was Leap Frog: Talking Words Factory 2 Code Word Caper. He is addicted to words and reading. He also likes different languages, for example, He is watching Pocoyo en Espanol (Spanish). He knows his numbers, colors, greetings, and much more in Spanish.

J is blessed to have a September birthday. So, he gets three years of preschool. He gets to play a little bit longer. He turns 5 September 1st. 

Last week, we went shoe shopping it took him 3 hours to pick his shoes. I enjoy letting him make choices. His dilemma was that he would find a pair of shoes he absolutely loved, then glance to his right or left and find another pair he adored. As soon as he saw the latest pair the others shoes were old news. He has recently changed his favorite color from blue to red. He settled on a pair of neon yellow and blue tennis.

J has had a immeasurable success with his dog Gordon-Henry Issac. He informed me Issac is his last name which differs from ours.

GHI has eased anxiety. For example, he HATES to be ALONE. Yesterday, he was in his Grandparents home , while we all talked outside . He opened up the back door and asked ” Mom, can you come inside with me?” and I replied ” I am enjoying being outdoors talking to Grandma. You can bring your toys outside.” He said ” No, I don’t want to.” he shut the door and played inside.  Last, we he would have whined , cried and demanded that I play with him exclaiming he was scared and lonely. My Mom noticed a difference in his behavior .

J has NEVER slept in his own crib  or bed. He used to scream just passing his crib. He has had his bed three and a half years and hadn’t slept in it. For the last 3 nights he has been sleeping in bed without complaint.

Today, while checking out at Albertson’s Grocery.

J asked the cashier “What’s your name?”

She said “Sam.”

He smiled at her and said ” You’re special!”

She responded with a smile and “Thank you!”

J quickly exclaimed “Nice to meet you! Have a great day!”

He made me so proud to be his Momma. He is a BIG 4 year old!

I LOVE everything about this preschool.

The foliage is amazing .

It is pretty awesome to have a indoor pond.

Parental involvement is a plus.

I am overjoyed by their book selection.

Nature is abundant….simply astounding .

Today, we experienced our first day of cooler weather.

A smooth cool breeze with overcast.

The High today was 72 C and 62 C for tonight’s weather.

This is the outfit J chose.

We had fun making a Home depot run.

J picked out Yellow Pear Tomato plant , pansies and petunias.

            

I admired the grapefruit mint , which smells exquisite.

I am planning on putting these plants with unsowed seed.

Our garden will have exotic and beautiful colors : yellow, pink, magenta, and violet.

On Tuesday, I was at the grocery store strolling the spice aisle .

I decided I would sow the spice seeds poppy and fennel.

I have a empty spot that I will sow the poppy seeds.

Fennel seeds will help J when he has a upper respiratory infection.

I like these bright shelves.

I enjoy the simplicity of the lounge chair and a plant. The tall book shelf compliments the room.

It is neat how the bookshelves are part of the wall; but leaves room for a piece of art or window.
