It's days like today that I really, really wish Aaron was here. I wish he was here so he could see Jalen in his uniform as he goes off to his first day of high school. I wish he was here to help me reassure him that high school is going to be great fun, and that he is going to have some of the best years of his life there. I wish he could see how nice he looked, and how he lost all the first day nerves, when he spotted his friends in the crowd of grade 7s. I wish he was here to ask him after school how it went. I wish he was here to tell us how his day went with the students on their first day.
It was also Kobe's first day ever at daycare. He was so excited to be going to 'Shannon's house' and will be going there one full day and two mornings a week. He has never been in care before (either had any of the other boys) but he is going to love it, and he had the best day there today. I kept thinking all day that I wish Aaron was around so we could tell him how much fun Kobe had there, and how we don't need to worry about him.
He was very excited to have the day with me, and got to choose to do whatever he wanted,so we went and played mini golf to start with.
