Where does time go?  Andrew has completed his first quarter of the school year and has brought home his first report card of first grade.  He is doing very well at school.  Academically he is ahead of the curve, and socially he is right on track.  The only “negative” thing that the teacher had to say at his conference is that he likes to work independently and can be somewhat hard-headed.  Not too bad, I must say.  He is currently reading beyond where the school district wants kids to be reading at the END of first grade.  It is amazing how quickly they pick up reading once they start!!
