We made it through our first month of 2nd grade. After two years of home schooling, as much as it pained us, we knew that our baby was ready to move on. It has been exceptionally hard for us as parents but also rewarding, I guess that is all of parenthood. Everyday when I pick him up from school he tells me it was a great day. The things I struggled to motivate him to do while I taught him, are now the things he pushes himself to be better at. All the subjects he loved and spent hours asking questions about, he excells at now. Yet, everyday I drop him off and feel like a piece of me is missing until I pick him up and hold him in my arms again.
