Mission: Welcome to Crawling 101. Students Clark, Henry, Isaac, and Brooks have just been accepted into this accredited and intense study program due to becoming 8 months today. We’ve posted video and pictures to document our “project” for the semester.
Progress Notes: The Murray’s are Mobile! We’ve heard “wait til they’re crawling” about a million times now, so I’m sure it will soon be replaced by “wait til they’re walking”. I’m celebrating every milestone, though. It’s so excited to see how God created these little guys to learn how to move and to watch them figure things out so quickly. This is one giant leap for the Murray Quads! I had no idea they would catch up developmentally so quickly! Way to go Murray Crew!
Individual Report Cards: (I used some familiar end of the year report card comments and adapted them for Crawling School.)
Clark – Clark enjoys “rockin‘ and rollin‘” best. Yep, that’s right a rebel rocker. He gets around well, but hasn’t quite figured out the one arm, one leg, next arm, next leg technique, but hey, Superman flies, he doesn’t need to crawl!
Grade: “B” Clark is displaying enthusiasm and is eager to improve his crawling skills.
Henry – Henry (our fearless leader) is up on all fours performing the “rock and lunge” approach. He has not perfected the traditional crawling technique, but gets the main idea.
Grade: “B+” Henry shows great potential and works diligently towards achieving the crawling goal.

Isaac – Have you taken a look at those thighs lately, does it look like they’ve been crawling? Cut him some slack, people. It takes a lot of effort to lift the load. Actually, Isaac is our champion sitter. He sits up and plays for 10 minute intervals now.
Grade: “Not Applicable” Isaac is an active participant in class and is very pleasant to others. His skills will continue to develop with more exposure and practice (due to his increased weight).
Brooks – Brooks is little but mighty. He’s motivated to MOVE. He gets from one side of the room to the other in minutes. I think I need to work on my sprinting to eventually keep up with this little man.
Grade: “A-” Brooks is growing in independence and confidence towards crawling.

A new report card will be posted at the end of the semester……
