My son is off to his first day of 1st grade! This is typically a child's second year of school, most starting in Kindergarten, some even as early as Pre-K. Not my boy. This is his 4th year of schooling. He began at age 3 in the 'Head Start' program. It may have only been a few hours a day for four days a week, but, he's pretty much a pro at this going to school thing :)
He's come so far in these past four years and overcome pretty intense speech difficulties and I'm so proud of him. I'm so blessed to be able to call him my son and I love him more than words can express. Here's to a new and exciting school year!
