In Which Lex Finishes the First Grade

Today, Lex completed the second half of first grade on ABC Mouse.

You guys, it's the end of an era.

Lex has been doing ABC Mouse since Connor started using it for Kindergarten, more than four years ago.  He was only a year old, so we started him on the very first level, Toddler Time.  He completed that level, as well as levels 1 through 3 at his own pace.

Then, last fall when it was time for him to start Kindergarten, we skipped over the last preschool level (level 4), and he started level 5, which is the first half of Kindergarten.

Of course, when he finished Kindergarten, he thought he was done with ABC Mouse forever.  But then, he was offered a chance to participate in the Beta testing for the brand new first grade levels, levels 7 and 8.

He has now completed both of those, and this afternoon he was presented with a graduation certificate for finishing first grade.  And this time, he really is done with ABC Mouse, because there really aren't any more levels for him to complete.  I even went so far as to cancel our membership, since we don't need to pay for it anymore.

*Sniffle.*  They grow up so fast!  Goodbye, ABC Mouse!  It's been great!
