The Brooks

Saturday, September 1, 2012


My sister-in-law reminded me after not updating for about a month and a half, it was time for a new post. So Melissa, this is for you!

Whit started pre-k at PDS on August 20 and HE LOVES IT! He thinks it's the best thing in the world. In fact, he had to miss Friday because of a little stomach bug and he was crushed. He kept saying "I don't like to throw up" and then "why can't I go to PDS?" Poor kid couldn't understand why all of his friends were there but he wasn't.

Every day that the kids have a good day they get a sticker. Well, it took about 4 days before he just had a really bad day. He had to pull 3 sticks, and that's a big deal for those of you who don't know what that means. That's just bad. It crushed him. However, he has received a sticker every day since then and is beyond proud of himself. When he gets out of the car, he will tell the coaches about his stickers, and even get out his folder to show them the stickers. He will show his teachers when I pick him up. He will tell anyone ready to listen about his sticker. So, I think pulling sticks turned out to be a good thing because he doesn't ever want to do that again.

Here is the first day of school. Also, if you go to and then go to Classes, Gruby/Kilgore AM they have photos posted that you can see of the boys and he's on there a few times.


  1. Yay!!! Love reading about Whit's big boy school! So sorry he was sick, and sorry for pulling sticks! :( Tell him that Aunt Melissa is very proud of him for getting so many stickers! Yay Whit!

  2. Oh, yes! Pulling sticks is a big deal. But what a great idea, really. Isn't it wonderful to see your child enjoying "school?"
