We’ve had an exciting last few weeks here in the Lacko household. Noah made a very auspicious first rollover the week he turned 3 months old (Boy genius!) and Joseph has been absolutely thriving at his new school.

He has been attending Anneliese’s Aliso campus on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It is such a lovely little school, where the teachers address their young students in German, French, Japanese and Spanish (and yes, English!) They serve organic meals, teach the children how to plant and tend the garden, and foster a broad cultural awareness. We’ve been very pleased to have Joseph come home happy, shouting “bonjour!” and counting effortlessly in Spanish. It would seem that he is learning at lightning speed in this new environment, and we couldn’t be happier. The funny thing is that during the summer months, Anneliese’s is on “summer school”–essentially playtime. I look forward to seeing his progress this fall when the actual school curriculum begins. Hurray, Anneliese!

They have had nothing but glowing remarks about our sweet little guy and are very impressed that he is such a good sharer, he pays attention and joins the activities in circle and has come already equipped with his alphabet, shapes, colors and numbers. I’m so proud of him and I’m so glad my little boy and I spend time together working on learning and more importantly, learning to learn.

But, they also commend him for being such an independent sleeper–ha! Not at home! Every naptime and every evening, it’s a new adventure for mommy and daddy. But that’s another story…
