A huge Thank You to Ron, Valerie and Jensen. Eli was so excited to get mail. His eyes were huge when he saw all these goodies. We broke open the flashcards right away !

You guys are the best blogging buddies! We really hope that we can get together this summer.

I met with Eli's ELL teacher Thursday morning. Eli is doing well. He is getting a significant amount of instruction and support in the class. We are so fortunate to live in the school district that we do... he still gets upset and has periods were he is overwhelmed but given the fact that it has only be 21 days with us I think he is doing great !

These two have certainly bonded. Mia is gaining language skills -so her and Eli get along well. The shows that she watches and the books we read with her are at his level. I think that he is not as intimidated by her attempts at conversation. They love to share noodle cups and jump on the trampoline together.

My goofy boys !

You are welcome for the package. I hope Eli has a blast with everything.

Sounds like things are going great in school:)

Happy Easter!!

You're welcome! :)

I'm an ESL teacher so if you need any help, please let me know. Hopefully some of the flashcards can help him with some basic English vocabulary. I use them with Jensen all the time!!!

Have a wonderful Easter!
