Happy Labor Day

I can not believe summer is coming to an end.  It was a gloomy day in Cape May County.   Of course I spent most of my day at work.  However it was not all that bad as I was able to hang out with a new patient who was a very talkative and full of life at 88 years old. 
Carson starts school tomorrow.  Carson is repeating Kindergarten primarily due to his level of maturity.  We felt it was best for him to repeat his kindergarten year instead of 4th or 5th grade.  I explained to Carson that he would be in Kindergarten again this year and he said, "Mommy, that's ok.  I do not want my name to be taken off the wall and I would miss Mrs. H___."  Well, that's what he is saying now... we will see how it goes tomorrow.  Our prayer is that Carson will listen the first time to his teacher and respect authority.  For some reason Carson will challenge authority and campaign for what he wants and believes in.  Yes its a strength at times, however it also can appear to be very defiant.

Hmmm, I have one of those at my house. :) Have you read The Connected Child? We read it (and then watched the DVDs this summer) and learned alot about why our son does what he does. We are going into week 3 of kindergarten. Still working on maturity, self-control, and respect. If you find any tips, let me know. :)
