I have to take a moment here and say something about my Ethan.
He's six and is in kindergarten this year.
I was so nervous about sending him. He's sensitive, easily distracted, and has a hard time sitting still. I mean, he's a six year old boy. They are rarely a perfect fit for the classroom. The night before his first day, I was up all night crying and praying for his year. That his teacher would be encouraging and gentle. That his beautiful spirit would not be changed. That he would learn!
But he is thriving in school. His daily behavior report comes home sunny every day. And he is soaking up information like a sponge. I wasn't sure if my mile-a-minute, flip-off-the-couch, lego-crazed little guy would ever slow down enough to try reading, but he is! And writing, too. We've been finding love notes from him all over the house.

I love when kids start to figure out letters and words, and it finally starts to click. The whole world opens up before them. So fun to watch. This week Ethan's been home from school with a stomach virus, but that gives me a little extra time with him. I love you, my Ethan. I hope you are feeling good soon!
