Quoted in NY Times Article about Kindergarten

I had the chance to talk with a New York Times writer about holding back kids for kindergarten. She quoted my reasons for keeping our son, Elliott, out until he was almost six. Now that he is a third grader, we realize we made a perspicacious decision four years ago. For the first time, he is not having too much trouble sitting through class. He is making good decision about his behavior and self-regulating when necessary.

Here is the link to the article. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/22/fashion/22Cultural.html

Elliott's First Day of School



Notice the buzzed hair cut on Elliott? I hated to see his beautiful blonde hair cascade down onto the ground but he wanted to try something new. With his goofy teeth falling out all over the place and the crooked ones coming in, he has taken on an entirely different look! Ah, but he is cute anyway.
