First Day Jitters

Jonah did well.
The drop off was hard. It was loud and he cried but when we peeked in later he was playing. They said he did well and only cried one time. He really enjoyed the singing center. His teachers/therapist were great. Four different adults talked to us about him before we left. His group leader called him smiley. :) He did cry a little when we picked him up but I think he was just overwhelmed. So all and all it was a great day. Daniel and I met lots of parents with kids with hemiplegia and stroke. I cried like a fool when we did our introductions it's hard to face everything. We had coffee after our meeting with other parents. It's nice to get the first day jitters over and to meet other families. 


  1. What a great experience for all of you! I am sure it was tough, but you did it!!!

  2. We are so proud of you and Daniel. Love is going out to both of you. Jonah looks so beautiful today and we are so happy he has an appropriate nickname. Is that the same pig bank he has at home from nana and granddaddy?

    Please tell Elijah we know he was brave today. Love, mom

  3. Glad your first day is over. i`ve been thinking about you all and especially Jonah. I know he will be better when its all over. Take care and Pa Paw has you in his prayers.

  4. A message from Caleb and Caroline:
    We love you with all our heart and we miss you a lot Jonah. Love Caleb
    I can't wait to see you in July. See you soon. Tell Jonah I said hi. Love, Caroline
    (ps...this is Mindy...I typed Caleb's exact message for him but Caroline typed her own message!!!)

  5. I am so glad today is behind you all. I know you all will feel settled in soon. I am so glad Joe has this opportunity! You all are wonderful parents and are doing everything just right. Keep smiling.... we are sending some hugs and love from Kentucky straight to you guys! XOXOXO from the key family!

  6. First days.....they are always hard, exciting, and full of hope! Thank you for sharing this journey with us. What an incredible opportunity for your whole family - each one of you. Jonah looked so sweet, happy, and engaged.
