First day of school
Judging from this photo you would think that Quintus was excited about going to school and Jason very unsure. Actually it was just the opposite. Jason was extremely excited and thought that sitting down to take a photo was just wasting precious time that he could have been at school already. Quintus was hoping that we would spend hours taking this photo.
Quintus was up most of the night. Just like when he went to Grade R for the first time. He was so nervous. Worried. He had headaches. Tummy aches. He was up before 5 am already this morning. He couldn’t believe that I was sending him to school even though he wasn’t really feeling well. My heart went out to my oldest boy. I know why he is stressed and there is nothing I can do to prevent it. I cannot wrap him up in a cotton ball for the rest of his life. Lots more I can write about this and will need to leave it for another post. Just accept that since they are still at school and I have no idea how he coped this first day, I have found it very difficult to concentrate on work.
Jason on the other hand. Oh my word. Self-confidence galore. He walked in there as though he owned the class lol There was this one little boy who was SO upset. I asked Jason to take him and play with him. Jason was SO sweet with him. I am sure that when I go to pick Jay up now, he will be full of smiles and stories.
