A huge thank you to all of you who prayed that Jakob would ease well into school. On Thursday I woke Jakob up in a hurry. While I had been awake for some time, time itself slipped away and I hadn’t realized it. He dressed in his uniform without a fuss even though he was determined back in Canada that he would not wear a costume to school.We hurried to school along the cobblestone backroads of Cambridge until we reached Sancton Wood. It is about a 25 minute walk which can be a challenge for any 4 year old, but hopefully that will soon be remedied with a bike and trailer.
There was a little humph! with arms crossed as the teacher invited him in but it didn’t last long and soon he was down on the ground playing with cars. Jakob just needed to know that they spoke his language (cars). The Nursery Nurse (I think this would be teacher’s aid) said that he did very well. At home he willingly sat with me while we read the book that was sent home. He even wanted to go back to school today and when I went to pick him up, asked me to ask him who is friends were. I asked and he replied very emphatically, “Harry Tot and Ben” So there you have it. Success so far. Next week is 5 days in a row which, I fear will be a shock but you just never know.

The funny thing about living in Cambridge is that I check my email during the day in vain as all my friends in Canada are, hopefully, peacefully sleeping. When I get up in the morning they are just heading to bed and when I go to bed at night the kids aren’t even home from school. Regardless, it is always good to hear from friends and family, so do drop a line now and then.
