Oh I do have something to write about....Jacob got in trouble at school Friday. This was his first time every going to the principles office. He was on the playground playing and some girls asked him to chase them. Then they told another boy to protect them from Jacob. So the boy twisted Jacob's arm an wouldn't let go so Jacob punched him and then got on top of him and kept punching him. I first read the note in his book from the teacher then asked him to tell me his story. He did and I asked him why didnt' he run from the boy and he said "Mommy I couldn't he wouldn't let go of my arm!" Then I asked him did he feel bad about what he did and he started crying and said "yes but he thinks the girls were trying to get him in trouble". He is not a fighter and even begs Jaron to stop wrestling with him. I am shocked at his behavior but also glad he defended himself. Punishment was 2 days to sit out of recess.
I cannot even begin to imagine what kind of trouble Jaron might get into in kindergarten....he LOVES to wrestle and fight and jump and tackle...next year should be very interesting...goodnight...I'm tired.

UPDATE: I emailed his teacher about the 3 chapters she wants him to read each night....she said he is very smart (he is always above grade level in reading on his report cards) and she thought he could do it faster than 45 minutes. She said it was okay to only do 2 chapters if we wanted. But I tried going in the bedroom with him last night and we laid on my bed in the quiet away from his brothers and he read 3 chapters again without stopping and it took him 45 minutes again. So tonight we only made him do 2 chapters. He loses interests and fidgets a lot. Before this week his homework was to read 10 minutes per night. Not sure why she increased it so much? Atleast she was nice about it...
