All about Micah, the SECOND grader

Why does this child look SOOOO HAPPY!?!?!  Because today he finished all his first grade curriculum.  As of this afternoon he is a SECOND grader!!  This year Micah studied phonics, reading, grammar, arithmetic, and spelling.  He also took art, gymnastics, piano,and swimming classes.  He also completed his first year of Cub Scouts and earned his Tiger rank.  This year Micah read a lot of novels.  Some beginner novels and some more advanced.  He finished reading, with Mom (and a little help from Jim Dale) books 3 - 7 of the Harry Potter series.  On his own, he read "Little House in the Big Woods" and "The Magician's Elephant".  He learned carrying, borrowing, and beginning multiplication facts in arithmetic.  He completed several stories about puppies, lady bugs, camping, and fishing.  He also wrote reports on George Washington Carver and Abraham Lincoln.  The best thing about being 7 and in the first grade (according to Micah) is FINALLY getting to be a cub scout (after attending meetings as a little brother for 5 years, Micah was SO READY for it to be HIS TURN to earn stuff!).
