im sure i could go on.  i hope i can remember these days.  jackson is sweet.  he loves his family so well, has adjusted well to school.  i think we are both wondering what 1st grade will be like.  but i do know that he will take it in stride.  i can’t believe his next birthday will be the big 7!  i guess with the first kid, every new age seems so old!


love you so much jackson
