Second Grade

J is in the middle of his first day of second grade today. I walked him into school to have a quick word with his teacher this morning. It's been fun to see kids from his kindergarten class and see how much they've changed since then. J is anxious about second grade and whether or not he'll be able to keep up. He struggles with reading and writing, yet he's a math & science whiz. But those problems undermine his confidence in himself and that is what breaks my heart. He was a little disappointed to find out that there is no gym class on Tuesdays anymore. I think he was hoping to start the school year off in his favorite subject.
