September Means Birthdays

We made it through the first week of school. For Tanner that meant going Monday with me, Tuesday he had his assessment, and then starting school normally on Thursday.  He was so excited to ride the bus.  Here are he and Vance getting on the bus on Thursday.  He said that was his favorite part of the day.
 Vance is enjoying school.  He is doing a seed collection already and knows lots of kids in his class from previous years.  Tanner is still adjusting and so we'll see how things go this week.  His teacher and I have talked about putting him in a higher grade for reading groups for 45 minutes of the day since the kid is reading 2-3 grade books with ease.  Hopefully we can get that all worked out soon and get him into the swing of things.  I think his teacher is good, but keeping Tanner learning will be a challenge I think.  The kid is just a smart little whip.  It is almost embarrassing.  I don't want people to think I have been shoving education down his throat, he just came like that and I have guided him along.

September is a big month for birthdays in Stephen and I's family.  We kicked off the birthdays yesterday with my nephew.  He had a cute train cake.
 Here are he and Porter playing with one of his birthday presents. I think these two will be good friends even though Porter is a year older.
September also includes my mother, Stephen's mother, Tanner, my older sister, Stephen's oldest sister, and one of my brother-in-laws birthdays.

You hardly get into September before the birthdays start. At least there is only one member of your immediate family that is in one month. I've got 3! Glad you came to help Elliot celebrate. And that little Tanner is a a good way! Hope his teacher is on her game. :)
