The 1st Grade

It seems absolutely IMPOSSIBLE that John Paul is in 1st Grade this year! He continues at All Saints Catholic School and is extremely proud to be in a "grade". No more "letter classes", ie. P3, P4, or K. He is already counting years to high school, when he can play football, when he can go to Gonzaga......

Craig and I are incredibly proud of how well he is doing in school. With all that has gone on in his life, it's easy to worry that he will not meet his potential or perhaps will act out. His Progress Report and Report Card reflect that he is adjusting and finding his groove.

He has found a good fit with his teacher, Miss Vogel, again this year. His seat has been moved a few times....So I can definitely say he is enjoying his classmates! He misses some of his buddies that are in the other 1st grade classroom, but they seems adept at finding each other at recess or otherwise.

A special thank you to All Saints, who has helped and supported our family and continues to ensure that our boys receive the education we hoped for them. The teachers, staff, and families have been wonderful. We truly feel a part of the community.

The pics are from his first day.

P.S. He is finally getting one of his front teeth.....
