From Daddy: Tonight from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. was an open house at his school!
Does this face look like him?, April 24, 2014, 6:35 p.m.
He played some kind of coin bingo game, April 24, 2014, 6:38 p.m.

Practicing his ceramics skills with play doh: He pressed the buttons from his shirt to make impressions in the play doh. It’s supposed to be a pizza, April 24, 2014, 7:27 p.m.
We also visited the first grade classrooms as a preview for next year!
Tuesdays and Thursdays are calisthenics days at his before school program. He grumped about it, saying that he doesn’t like calisthenics. However, then he saw what the kids were doing. “Banana Tag!” he exclaimed and ran right in!
He is forced to sit after being tagged out during Banana Tag, April 24, 2014, 8:20 a.m.
He was joyful–happy and smiling–to play Banana Tag. He used to cry at the prospect of losing in elimination games like dodge ball, Sharks and Minnows, musical chairs, and tag, but now he seems to have advanced! I’m so proud of him!
Also this morning, I took the opportunity to thank the before-school teacher that help him feel better yesterday after he hurt his elbow. I told him that he “made [him] feel better” after he broke his skin.

So, Ga-Ga, wanna get some drinks after this party?
