Kindergarten: Week 5

Last week was a really good week for Madyn. He had blues almost every day. He was focused, and on task. Not too hyper, and was a very good listener.

Madyn had his first school picture day too! He wore a brown plaid shirt with brown shorts that Grandma Debbie got him. He allowed me to spike his hair and he looked so handsome! He was ready to smile too! I'm so anxious to get the pictures & CD back!

Last week we also had our first appointment for Madyn. He has officially been diagnosed with ADHD. However, we have to wait on a psych eval to get any sort of medicine or anything. We do get to see a therapist for him though and I'm hoping that seeing a therapist will help him calm down a little bit.

Madyn continues to LOVE school and is still sad on weekends when he has to stay home. I am very thankful that he likes school!

Kindergarten: Fourth Week!

SO Madyn has successfully completed ONE month of school! I'm SO very proud of him. He wakes up every morning with a smile and looks forward to going to school. It's been a roller coaster of a month and he's still figuring out the rules, but I think with time I'll have one very well behaved little boy. (fingers crossed!) ;). By now we've established a school day routine and a weekend routine and he knows them by heart. I wake up at around 6, and he gets up shortly after me (6:15-6:30ish) and then it's shower time, breakfast, brush teeth, spend some quality time together and then start the walk to school. Weekends he likes to stay in his pajamas as late as he can. My boy LOVES his jammies just like his momma!

Last week was more down then up, though he did have one good day thrown in the mix. The rest of the days were just lots of movement, talking and trying to be in charge. He just doesn't understand why he has to listen to the teacher, or why he has to sit still so much. Madyn has NEVER liked to be still. Not even when he was an infant. So this whole sitting still business isn't working for him yet.

This week is off to a pretty good start, and as usual I'll catch you guys up on this week next week! :D

Hope you all have a good short week!
