    Henry has finally mastered the ability to tie his shoes! His fine motor skills have been a bit slower to come around. I have noticed a big difference this year. His teacher is working on his handwriting which has improved soooo much! He finally is able to tie his shoes.
    His large motor skills have always been quick to develop.
    He would get soo frustrated with the shoe tie thing we had to stop. He is so proud of himself. I am happy since he is already in 2nd grade.
    Tre has known for a long time and he is the opposite great fine motor and large motor taking longer.
    I guess they balance each other out !

    Yay Henry! I tried for months to teach Lily without success and then she watched Joe do it on Blue's Clues and was doing it herself the next day. Made me feel really good about my teaching skills.
