Our 6th Back to school dinner. 
The traditional meal of Spaghetti & meatballs with Garlic rolls & salad.
Sparkling cider for toasts & the yearly character challenge. 
We challenged Tre to plan ahead. He is a hard worker & we really want him to keep the end in mind. He has big dreams & if he wants to get there he needs to plan for tomorrow. Britton tends to spend much time alone. He enjoys it. Playing games alone, reading alone, playing legos alone. We challenged him to be a friend to someone who needs a friend. We hope it will encourage him to look around & notice the other children near him, & hopefully he will step outside his comfort zone a bit. Maddox really needed this challenge. The boy is a bit sassy, & talks over others frequently. we want him to listen 1st & think & then respond or act. We are working hard on that one. He just has a lot to say! This is Presley's very 1st challenge. It was hard to think of one for our sweet & sour birdy. In the end we hope learning to be with others 3 hours a school day will help her learn to be calm even in moments where her words are struggling or someone is not understanding her. Calm responses would be a wonderful development. Its hard to believe we have 4 little students now! Rod gave the children their yearly back to school father's blessings. Presley decided she was done mid blessing & hopped off her seat & ran off giggling! Oh well...its the thought that counts right? 

Heres to a great 2014-2015 school year!
