Math Night Excitement
So this morning I read Eli this flyer that came home from school about a "Family-Fun Math Night" that is taking place at school tomorrow. There will be math challenges with prizes, minute-to-win-it games, a floor sized map of the USA, and milk & cookies.
My goodness, Eli was beside himself with excitement over this. He had the hugest smile and said he couldn't wait. He was practically jumping. I asked him if he knew what minute-to-win-it games were ...and he said "No, But I'm sure they're going to be awesome...because its family math night. Please can we go even though we don't know what it is. Because I do know what the map is and it is AWESOME!"
His excitement was contagious! I hope the math night lives up to his expectations! Haha!
The whole scene was quite amusing.
And I can't get his excitement out of my head.
It just blows me away how big and smart and kind my first baby is getting. He is just thriving in school and I love it. I mean...he's excited about Math-Night. He has blossomed with making friends. He has a little friend he wants to marry because she is nice and always smiles at him. He writes stories. He loves to show me his work he brings home everyday. He is reading so well and LOVES to read everything he sees. He loves to go to school. He hugs and kisses me goodbye (I treasure this) and runs to his line every morning. He waves and smiles and says hello to all his friends. He races out at the end of the day and is so excited to talk to us and be with us. He's doing great. And he can't wait to take me to Math-Night.
I must say I'm quite excited now too.
