Boden and Hutson are back to school.  Boden is in the Montessori equivalent of 1st grade and Hutson in kindergarten. Both are excited and happy to be back in school.  Hutson looked forward to seeing Ethan, Maddy and Benjamin.  Boden wasn’t sure who would be in his class.

The second week of school, I received a call from Hutson’s teacher…Nora.  She said Hutson was in a bit of a tussle with Ethan.  Ethan pushed Hutson and Hutson retaliated.  By the time Nora broke them up, they were wrestling on the ground.  Both lost their outside privilege and were quite upset.  Later that night, I asked how his day was and he said…”I got in BIG TROUBLE”.  He detailed what happened.  He said Ethan pushed him and wouldn’t leave him alone.  Hutson said stop but finally snapped and pushed Ethan back.

Boden and Hutson have been playing with Yee Yee quite a bit lately.  She is the 3 year old girl from China that lives next door.  She doesn’t speak English yet.  Boden said “dad…she doesn’t speak English very well.  But she laughs in English”.

Both the boys started soccer.  Both give it their all.  Boden is on the Forest Heights Eagles. His team is undefeated.  Boden is one of the top players.  He is engaged and hustles on both sides.  He needs to work on his celebrations after he scores though!

Hutson is one of the bigger kids on his team.  He also hustles and laughs during the drills and the game.  He is one of the best players on the team and dominates the ball, scoring a lot of goals.
