Times, They Are a Changin'

We met with AJ's teacher the first week of school and she said she thought AJ had turned a corner and we'd be seeing great changes in him this year academically.  On Friday, Matt brought home an easy-reader chapter book and not only did AJ sit right down and start reading it, he finished it before lunch on Saturday and asked Matt if they could go to the library and get the 2nd book in the series. 

Things continued to change this morning when AJ asked Mat to buzz his hair.  I honestly can't remember the last time AJ had a haircut.  His hair is quite amazing how it just spirals on its own, but I told him, if he was going to keep it long, he had to condition it every morning and pick it out.  Funny, after 3 weeks of doing this every morning for school, AJ decided a buzz cut was way easier to care for. 

Ready for a buzz

He's taking his bag o' hair to school to show his class...crazy kid!

My good lookin' men!

Things that haven't changed...AJ scoring more goals in a soccer game than the entire other team combined. He had 2 games this weekend and scored 3 goals in each game.  I'm more proud that he is scoring when he has the opportunity, but passing more and making sure others on his team get a chance to score a goal.   Good job, Buddy!
