Norman Rockwell boy

Today was a fun day - our first 'Stake Conference' here in Switzerland! The whole 2-hr church session was in French, but we wore English headsets (one of just a few people who did, since almost everyone here speaks French!). The kids sang with the Primary at the beginning -- the English-speakers sang in English, and the French kids in French. One of our friends said Kenny reminded her of one of those classic boys in a Norman Rockwell painting - all American kid doing his own thing... this video doesn't catch all his little antics, but you can imagine...

Stephen starts homeschooling tomorrow. He's BEYOND excited. As he THRIVES on schedules and order, I asked him to write out a schedule based on what he'd like to start studying. Here's what he came up with:

Pretty funny - we've talked about how we'll need to focus on his nails since he's a nail-picker, but ofcourse we won't be devoting 45 minutes to it!  We've also discussed how he'll be getting less 'social' from not being surrounded by lots of people, so we'll be doing other things to supplement his communication skills - like having him carry on conversations (in French) with people when we go grocery shopping, etc.  After we sat down and talked about his schedule, we came up with this one for tomorrow, to be evaluated at the end of the day ~
