Just a couple big things Andrew is up to!

First off, we put Andrew in underwear for a day (left) to help him make some potty-training connections.  It didn't go very well.  Since he goes to school every day during the school year, we thought we should at least give it a whirl this summer (he is 3.5) to see what happens.  We were fairly sure he wasn't ready but wanted to see what he would do and help him understand what underwear do.  By the end of the day he went from being Ok with sitting on the potty to totally hysterical.  Well, now we know for sure he isn't ready and are giving him more time.  In the mean time, we have some incentives.  Yesterday, he reluctantly asked to be put in underwear to play with one of said incentives, but then waivered and ultimately changed his mind.  But, the fact that he did ask to me is a step in the right direction since before he wouldn't consider it. 

Secondly, Andrew is in summer school this month.  The first day he was nervous but the bus driver said he was quite comfortable and happy as soon as he saw his friend Lily.  Ever since day 2, he's been very excited to go to school.  He now gets on and off the bus completely by himself (!) and also waves to me almost every day!! At right is a picture of Andrew eating his breakfast of choice (cereal and milk) on the first day.
