Tonight we had Tyson's parent teacher conference. I had been looking forward to this since the sign ups came home a few weeks ago. Who doesn't want to know how their kids are doing in school? I am thankful to report that Tyson is doing GREAT in kindergarten. His teacher, Mrs. Weiss, said he is a joy to have in class. He is right on target for where he should be this year. Mrs. Weiss did say that it wouldn't hurt to work on writing letters with him, but only if it is done in a fun way. So if anyone has good suggestions for making writing fun, I'd love to hear them!
Something that Darin and I both thought was funny was that Mrs. Weiss said Tyson is often one of the last ones finished with his work. The way she said it made it sound like he was being really careful and cautious, which was shocking to both of us. Then it came out that he likes to talk to the other kids at his table a bit too much. Now THAT made sense to us!
Darin and I are so thankful for the teacher Tyson has this year. She just has such a kind heart and seems to genuinely enjoy having him in her class. We both prayed so much about where he would go to school and whose class he would be in, and we feel confident that God has His hand on Tyson. We can't wait to see what the rest of this year holds for him.
