Rhode is my good buddy these days. He has preschool three times a week in the mornings and the rest of the time its just mom and Rhode time. Rhode really had a great preschool this year. His teacher, Miss Erika, ran preschool out of her home, but she was the queen of organization and fun. They had such a great time and she was so good at challenging Rhode. One of the days, they were asked to dress up as community helpers.
What other teacher would let him take full sized tools to school? :) Rhode has been so understanding and helpful since my work schedule has gotten busier. Our normal after lunch/during nap time schedule was read together, play the piano usually together, do his homework, and then get one or two chores done before he got some play time, usually on his computer math games. But I have had to turn afternoons into work time. So now, without being asked, he waters the garden, does his piano lesson, reads a few chapters by himself, and then does his homework, which has been free writing for the last few weeks. After I give him a job, he comes right back when he's done to ask, "Mom, what can I do next?" He is the best. He just had his last week of preschool (teacher is having a baby next month) so we get even more time together and I am not dreading it at all, which really is saying something!
Jon challenged Rhode to read ten books by himself to earn a dudes night and Rhode jumped on the challenge, finishing in about a week. They did not see Captain America...
Look how tall he is!
Sorry ladies, he's mine.
