This has been the first week of school and all goes well. Ryan has Mr. Kozac which is one of the only 2 male teachers in Tooker Avenue. The other teacher is in 5th grade. It seems that Mr. Kozac is really cool and open with the kids. He has shared some great stories with the kids. He shared his Ozzy Osbourne story about how he got on stage and he got taken off. He also shared the stories of of the new addition to his family. He recently had a new son and his wife is the 3rd grade teacher at Ryan & Daelyn’s school. He clearly stated that his son is Prince and not King for he is king.
As for Daelyn’s new teacher I don’t know of anyone who has had her yet. Daelyn has not had any of Ryan’s teachers at her time at Tooker Avenue. If we are fortunate she will continue with the good teachers. She has 2 of her best friends in her class and at her table that she loves. She will be going back to speech in October but not sure the exact time until I receive a letter from the therapist. Of course, I don’t need to tell you that she doesn’t want to go since she is fine and speaks well.

The first real week of school has begun, homework has arrived. It was so funny when I got home from work and their were no kids outside playing outside instead of doing homework. The kids had their fair share of homework and they go to Tae Kwan Do on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 to 5:15. They are at a high Yellow Belt and learning forms. Along with the Tae Kwan Do, Ryan will be in Religious Instructions during the week and Daelyn will be going once a month on Saturdays at 3:30 for about hour and half.
This weekend the kids also went for their annual physical and it turns out that their perspective heights as adults will be 5’9 to 5’10” for Ryan and about 5’6″ for Daelyn. Lucas is still to early to tell and at his last visit. Daelyn is 49 1/2″ inches and 66 pounds and Ryan is 50 inches and 60 pounds.
On a lighter note, Lucas and Ryan got haircuts and Lucas, well pretty much chopped the curls so I look forward to see if they come back again which I have a feeling they will. He still has that streak of red on top of his head also.
