Drew came home from preschool on Friday with a black eye! Apparently they were playing a game where they were running back and forth and Drew collided with a little girl. His first shiner! It didn't seem to bother him too much and I'm just glad we didn't have pictures scheduled.
Drew also had his first homework assignment for preschool. He had to fill out and color a worksheet about him to bring back to school to share. He has always had a bit of a fine motor delay and I have been worrying about his writing abilities. Tonight he did such a fantastic job coloring in the numbers and I was so proud of him! I know that coloring is a step towards writing and he was working so hard at it. He even wanted to continue coloring in his dinosaur coloring book after his assignment was finished. He was very proud of himself!
I know that many kids color a lot earlier (Ava can color just about as well as Drew can), but I guess this is just another one of those things that is a little bit sweeter to me. He's had to work so hard and overcome so much and I am just one very proud mommy.
