Jbird is going to Kindergarten

My second son Jbird graduated from PreK last May and he is headed to Kindergarten. I am so proud of him because he had a bit of a rough start with speech delay and other issues. A year ago today he was barely stringing 2 words together. After countless therapy, early education learning and multiple psychology evaluations, our Jbird started talking more. It wasn't just talking, it was expressing himself using words. Before we knew it, he was potty trained and we blinked again and he was making new friends.

It's been an emotionally and physically exhausting past 2 years but it is so nice to be here today. We weren't sure if we were going to hold him back for a year or not. His early education team and speech pathologist all agreed that not only he was ready for Kindergarten, he was ready to actually join the general education group. Trust me when I tell you that this is amazing news. We are elated and so thankful that our Jbird will be going to Kindergarten next year in the general education class.

I love this kid so much and I am so thankful for all that he was able to achieve in such a short amount of time
Picture time with our graduate. I wish I brought the good camera. The lighting was so bad in the room so all the pictures are kind of blurry

It's been a roller coaster of a year filled with a myriads of Dr appointment, speech pathologist and more. We are just so happy and thankful that all those things worked because Jbird is now going to Kindergarten. Way to go Jbird, you make us so proud everyday.
