School starts again

It's that wonderful time of year when the air gets crisper, pants are worn, and we sadly say goodbye to summer. 
Clark started school last week at St Raphael's Nursery School. He's in MWF mornings. His class is full of many of the kids from last year, but 10 boys and 5 girls! 
Clark amazes me. I really like his age. He is constantly making up songs, jokes and stories. His content frequently includes "poop" or "pie face" or "pickle pants" or other silly things. 
His latest joy is setting traps around the house. He has made girl traps and mommy traps. He has made bad guy robber traps to keep us safe. Today he was playing and kept getting caught in his own traps by an "evil king who drove by in his castle mobile" 
He is constantly making up games and has lots of fun ideas. 
Clark memorized my phone number just by hearing me say it on the phone or at the grocery store. 
He really wants to learn to read. He uses his finger to follow words on the page and enjoys participating in some very early readers where a sentence has a few pictures in it. He likes to read to Iris and now to his new frogs. 
He saved up his chore money to buy two tiny frogs. He gets a nickel for every pair of shoes he puts away, every cup he finds wandering around the house and returns to the kitchen, and for every night he wears underpants and is dry the next morning. 
He's a pretty great kid. We love him so much and are very proud of him. 

Next week is his superstar week at school. On Friday we will get to go into his classroom and introduce ourselves. I'm also going to read a story. We are all very excited!
