First Week of School

Look at those faces. How could I not love being with them all day? We had a good time last week, getting back on a schedule, seeing what new things we will learn this year. The best part is that Jett is all about what we are doing. Last year was a challenge because he wanted the other kids to play with him all day. So it was very hard for me to get much teaching done. But this year is different. I am grateful because I have prayed for this all summer. I won't say Jett is sitting patiently for hours. But he does like to join in.



Jett was excited to decorate his own pencil box. He plays on the computer with headphones or sits in his cubby and reads the books on his special shelf. He still wants the other kids to play with him. But he is learning patience. It is precious to me how much he wants to be like Noah. He will wear the same color shirt or ask for the same kind of cereal. Sunday morning I had told him to get his shoes several times. I was trying to get out the door and just grabbed them for him. He started crying alligator tears and I couldn't understand why. He wanted to wear tennis shoes like Noah and he had been trying to find socks! Of course, I found that sweet boy a pair of socks!!
