First day of school

I may have pictured it differently (very differently), but hey beggars can’t be choosers. Today Jacob went to “school.” He went to the Kindergarten assembly. He was beaming. Of course, playing it cool on camera, but he just couldn’t stop listing the names.

There’s Aerin!

There’s Ryan!

Look Liam.

Hey Mira.

Hey Becket.

Jacob has been without his peers for 10 months. I know I don’t need to explain to you (now hunker experts of your own) how hard this has been. His community has existed solely to adults and machines that beep and whiz about him.

But today he went to school!

A big thank you to Avenues for welcoming Jacob back to the community. We are thrilled to rejoin you all and are THANKFUL for the incredibly thoughtful and robust Kindergarten curriculum. 

Jacob will be ready to join the Avenues band. He has already taken great interest in the harmonica! And I picked up the guitar for the first time since freshman year of college. I got some practicing to do!

Happy weekend all.

  1. Seeing Jacob on Zoom was probably the highlight of Mira’s Kindergarten year!!! We’re beyond excited to have him back!
