I am so thankful for my reduced work week schedule. In the past few weeks I've been able to watch a full gymnastics class, participate in a music class and watch him enjoy part of a puppet show this morning at school.
What I've learned about Will by watching Will...
Gymnastics - he is a class clown. They all wait in line for their turn and after one of Will's turns he decided to hide under a table. The teacher, Mr. Glass, played right into his little hand and started looking for Will. He burst out from under the table and yelled, "here I am Mista Glass" - everyone started laughing and from there all the children decided to hide under the table after their turn.

Music class - he (and his daddy) love to move and groove to music. When Ms. Christi gets out the musical instruments I think he was the first person off the ground to go pick one out. That's actually really impressive because it usually takes him quite a bit of time to get off the ground. BTW - Ms. Christi is starting her own music class, http://www.crescendofamilymusic.com/, and I HIGHLY recommend trying her demo class on June 2! Will loves her classes and it's fun for parents too.
Ok, so this isn't a picture of music class with Ms. Christi (we have too much fun to take pictures), but of Will singing at the Christmas program at school. He is on the first row by Ms. Maria.
Puppet Shows - he isn't afraid of anything. The story was Sleeping Beauty. Why does my child laugh when the mean which comes on stage? Will isn't afraid of much - witches, doctors and needles scare most of us but Will just saunters right up to the counter.

Will has taught me so much about himself and myself. I know in my heart that he is teaching me so much more than I could have imagined. He is the reason why I know I CAN do this, even though I'd much much rather not. Thank you little bear.
