OK, time to brag on Braeden a bit! :)
He is in a day care which I love! (Though there are so many pluses and minuses when it comes to day cares period.) Last year he went to the same one, but was also in our district's preschool program in the morning. I enrolleed him in the preschool program just hoping to get him into some structure to help him out. I think the program is probably a really good one for many kids. Especially kids who come from not having many educational experiences at home or need some extra support in different areas. It was not for him. He is so incredibly bright (and I don't think I'm being biased :) ), yet I don't think they truly got to know him. I think they didn't learn a whole lot that he didn't already know and that that on top of his already "busy" behavior made for him being labeled "trouble." If you know what I mean. In the meantime, his class at day care was doing preschool at the same time, and he missed out. I think he would have learned a lot more if I hadn't sent him.
BUT, last year is past... This year I did not sign him up for "preschool" and just day care, with their preschool program.
SO, he can now spell all his color words (black, brown, orange, red, yellow, green, blue, and purple) AND tonight he counted by tens - IN SPANISH!!! :) It was too cute!!!
I still worry about his "activity." I am afraid of him being labeled a troublemaker in school and not being challenged academically. I hope to find the teacher who can pull that out of him and push him to achieve within his focus "issues." But I know in my heart God has so many wonderful things planned for his life. I can't wait to see!!! :)
