the joy of school

Jasper has gotten a cold that went away then came back. He is home with me today out sick from school.
It's a nasty cold that ht me pretty hard, the initial horribleness was over in a couple days but I've had this brutal cough that hasn't. Oh well.
Otherwise we are doing good.

first day of school

Well Jasper had his first day of school. I underestimated how hard it'd be for me.
He did great, not a tear as he went off to class in a single file line with the other children. He had fun and said he liked it. Even brought home a picture he drew of the school and a windy slide at the playground.
I on the other hand cried a little once I got back in the car. My baby, is in school. Elise would have loved to have been there, and so proud of his love of reading. She was a big reader and it was important for her to share her love of books with Jasper, and she did.
He has so much of his mom in him, it's great to see.

Wow, today we are going to Kindergarten Orientation. We'll meet his teacher and other staff.
I'm nervous, Jasper is excited.
Tomorrow is the first day of school, wow, where does the time go.
