Aidan has been having a hard time in Kindergarten and we recently decided to move him from full days to half days. The idea was that he could come home and rest in the afternoons, but instead he is blossoming and doing all sorts of neat work and taking on greater responsibility around the house as well. We have set up a corner of his room as his work area and he is enjoying many of the practical life activities that he didn't have time for when he was gone all day. The last few days have involved quite a lot of work in the kitchen- veggie burgers, lasagna, puppy chow, peanut butter cookies. He seems much more at peace and it is a joy to watch him.
