Elijah, the Town Crier

Or, the K4 Crier.

I seriously believe that he sees it as his duty to be the crier of the class. His teacher Mrs. Shrom, or Jane as I sometimes call her, told me today that he was crying so hard yesterday and wouldn't calm down. Finally she told him that he was going to have to sit in time out if he didn't stop and he immediately turned off the water works. She could not believe it. She was at the point where she was ready to go get Dan because he just was not calming down.

He is so theatrical. Yesterday when I asked him if he cried in class he said yes as in, "of course I did." One day he told me it's because that's what he does in his K4 class. But, I told him he didn't HAVE to cry. He is still trying to understand that.

Meanwhile, he LOVES K4 and is so bummed when Friday comes and he doesn't get to go to school that day. He cannot wait to go to school in the morning and is so happy to be there. Silly boy.

Madelyn of course is doing great and is just in her element when she is in school. And, she is riding the bus home which is just so fun. Seeing her little face in the window in the front seat as the bus pulls up to our house just melts my heart, and she waves to me. I just love it. It's my favorite time of day.
