Today, for the first time, BeanBean encountered something in his schoolwork about which he actually had to think!! He didn't respond well initially, ended up throwing his pencil and saying, "I'm not ready for kindergarten!" and running off.. but when he came back a few minutes later, he was calm, and he thought about things a bit and found it fairly easy. Hooray! This signifies a whole new level of school-- encountering ideas he's got to think about to learn. The next level, of course, would be presenting him with material that actually *challenges* him. Here's hoping that in one class, at least, it's not too far off.
