first day of fifth grade

Fifth grade is finally here!

Christian mostly spent the summer making music. Music is his passion right now. His choice of genre is dubstep & he literally talks about what he made, what he wants + needs, etc. every day - during dinner, at bedtime, & every time he comes downstairs to see what’s going on. We don’t know what he is talking about half the time but we love his excitement over his projects. Along with the music, he makes music vizualizers for his videos that he uploads daily (I think it’s daily.) I am impressed with what he can do for his age.

Christian was honestly not looking forward to going back to school. I guess that means he really enjoyed his summer break. When Christian saw this shirt at the store, he fell in love & has been patiently waiting for the first day of school so that he could finally wear it. I have a feeling he will wear this shirt every chance he gets. I don’t blame him. It is pretty cool.

As we were waiting to leave, he told me that when he was in Kindergarten the teacher told them to “follow directions.” He didn’t know what that meant at the time. He thought it meant he had to follow the teacher so he watched the teacher the entire time as she went back & forth in class. lol.

I can’t believe this is the last year of elementary. Christian is getting so big & I can’t help but feel sentimental about all this today, especially since he is turning TEN next week. 🖤

Christian finished fourth grade with all A’s! I can’t believe he’s in the fifth grade now & he’ll be turning ten really soon.
