Adventures in first grade

First grade has been a fun ride. I absolutely love Jack's french class. We have several native speaking French parents and even a Swiss parent in Jack's class. It has been great to hear people speaking French again. It is motivating me to start studying again. 

Jack has also developed a huge crush on a girl in his class. Her name is Elise and she is 7 months older than Jack. One day Jack decided to do some coloring/writing and this is what I came outside to: 

It says "I have a girlfriend Elise. I love my girlfriend.
I like to play with my girlfriend Elise. 
And then look what I found on the homework page his teacher sent home. Notice the hearts and the drawings and the "I love Elise" at the bottom! I didn't think this happened until at least high school.

Outside of school we have been having fun with the kids in Jack's class. One day we went to a new jumping place with some friends:

Another day we had several families from his class over to our house. The kids had a blast lighting off sparklers and playing the wii dancing game

Jack is practicing his writing a lot this year. I love seeing his notes. Here is one he wrote to his teacher after he broke a class puzzle and had to replace it.
Dear Mme G, Sorry that I broke your puzzle. Here is
another puzzle for our class. Sincerely, Jack
Twice a week Jack goes to karate after school. Here is a video of him breaking his first board.
