Jacob started school this week. He will be going M/W/F from 9-2:30. Nice long day to prepare him for Kinder next year. And I have to say, he did SO well on Monday. He was actually very excited to go. A little nervous too since it is a new school, new teacher, new friends but he did great. On the way to school he says "Mom, I'm so excited my stomach is rumbling." Oh dear I thought, he's nervous or hungry or both! But somehow I was glad he thought it was because he was excited.
He walked in and was all smiles. And when I picked him up he was all smiles! I had been telling him his teacher's name over and over during the weekend so he would remember it. Mrs. Arellano isn't the easiest name to remember or pronounce. When I picked him up he said "Mrs. Arellano kept saying, Jacob can you tell everyone my name." And boy did he seem proud of that.
He LOVES the playground

And of course I can't post this without the years past pictures...

And as for Luke, we decided not to send him this year after all. Waiting until next year when he is a little older and a little more ready gives me much peace since I was really questioning our decision to start him this year. We have been enjoying our time together so far this week. I know he loves the one-on-one and I'm trying to take advantage of that while Sarah is still sleeping so much!
