Q is 5 years old today!! What fun! He asked to go to a Blue Jays game so we are heading there tonight for a pretty important game (we booked these tickets weeks ago before we knew how important this game would be). Q is excited to see the game and eat popcorn.
Q is really growing up and is a fun guy. He loves to play toys, go outside, ride his bike, and keep up with his older brother. There have been many times where we are surprised that he has done certain things on par with his 9 year old brother, like going on a 5K bike ride, or playing complicated video games. He is often smiling and telling us things about his day. He is developing a sense of humour and will say some pretty cute things.
I have been very proud of how he handled online school last year. It was difficult for many students but especially for kids his age (Junior Kindergarten, ages 4-5). For the most part he sat at the iPad for the morning, participated in many of the activities, and made progress with his letters and numbers, as well as general language skills. He is happy and comfortable to be back in the real classroom this year with his buddies.
He loves to help out and set the table, help with food preparation, and tidy his room. There is a bit of a competitive nature in him where if we are getting after E for something, Q will pipe in to remind us that he is doing whatever is being asked of him, and will also scramble to tidy something up before E does.
There are times when he gets frustrated with not being able to do something or being unable to explain what the problem is, but he is definitely growing up and often says "okay fine" to give in when we need him to.
