Next stop..... 3rd grade!!
We are so proud of our Oldest. Our Firstborn. He has a place in my heart all for himself.
When he was only 4 months old, he contracted a very serious Respiratory virus and infection. His first Thanksgiving, he went into respiratory failure and was rushed by ambulance to the nearest Children's Hospital, where he was quickly put on a ventilator and wheeled to the PICU where he would spend over 2 weeks in an induced coma.
While his body rallied, and eventually fought off the nasty virus and his lungs healed, it is moments like these, where I am reminded vividly of how lucky we are to have him. To get to celebrate Kindergarten and beyond....lucky, for sure.
This year was an amazing year for our sweet Boy.
He excelled in Math, beefed up his "chapter book" reading, learned cursive and joined his school's Running Team. We were so fortunate to have an amazing Teacher. Nick loved her and it was easy to see that the feeling was mutual. She cheered when he excelled and rallied around him where he met struggles. A great mentor, for sure!!!
While he is sad to spend a few months away from his classmates, he is anxious to do lots if THIS......
I'm fairly certain this is where I will find him everyday of his Summer vacation!!!
