But the huge, momentous thing...
This guy started Kindergarten.
Here he is just a few months ago graduating from Pre K. I didn't post anything then either. The middle child really does get shafted.
When Ainsley was a year old, we took her to the beach for the first time. I posted a ton of pictures and broke the post into two parts - I used to have so much time, not sure where it all went. We also went to the beach this summer.
And Hershey Park.
Visited Philly for a day.
And we celebrated birthdays.
We got hair cuts.
Spent time with cousins.
We dressed as super heroes.
Ate lots of ice cream.
And apparently, lobster - but not lots of it.
But I'm getting away from the point of this post.
Freddie. Our sweet little Freddie started Kindergarten and he is such a rock star. He was very nervous. He missed his old classmates. He didn't want to go. But he is doing so awesome. He comes home with new stories and new knowledge every day.
After the first day he got off the bus very excited, but soon explained that he didn't want to go back because of fire drills. Freddie does not like smoke alarms, or any loud, sudden noise. There would be a drill later in the week and could he stay home?
He talked about it a lot that first week, so much so that I felt the need to warn his teacher. Told her about is fear of loud beeps and buzzes. Told her, he'd be fine, but he might cry. Might lose his shizz for awhile. Be prepared.
The fire drill came, and went and when I asked Freddie about it, he shrugged and said "I'm not afraid of that, I'm a big kid now."
Yeppo, I guess you are.
Happy first year of school buddy. You are so bright and insightful and sensitive. I just know you're going to blow that whole school away with your sweet little smile and thoughtful questions. They're never going to know what hit them after they meet my Fredders.
