Jude started 2nd grade this year. It really seems like 2nd grade is different than 1st or Kinder; it just seems like a “big kid grade.” At Jude’s school, he is on a totally different hallway. He even needed earbuds this year, as part of his school supply list.
Jude is such a pro now. He didn’t want Joe or me to walk him to class on the first day of school, but of course we insisted. I told him that we at least need pictures. The last two years there were still a few tears on the first day of school, but this year it was nothing but confidence. We even have a picture of little brother, Fox, making the classroom drop-off trek that morning.
