Both of the boys have been really enjoying the beginning of school. They really like having me as their music teacher - yay! They both got to perform at the back to school Hispanic Heritage festival at CSMH. Oliven performed "De Colores" and Vander did the body percussion and sand "Que Llueva" with the 3rd grade under my direction. They both did a great job. Afterwards they did the macarena. Oliven did not like the buddy shaking. He found it quite offensive.
Vander is loving baseball and really coming into his own as a pitcher and an all around player. He is also doing really well with his typing.
Oliven is loving piano and gymnastics. He got to meet Aly Raisman (an Olympic gymnast) over the weekend, which was really cool.
The boys wanted me to write down the tally for their summer reading fun. Vander got 188 boxes (1880 minutes, which is 31.3 hours) and Oliven read 176 boxes (1760 minutes, which is 29.3 hours) with 49 reflections each.
