From Daddy: Also, he said today when leaving the car, “Today is the fourth day of school, and it’s the fourth day of” his best friend.
For the second morning in a row, he again said he was not feeling great, but came around to going to school. He also said that he doesn’t like school as much as doing stuff at home (because he’s training; he’s down to 8 seconds on a made-up obstacle course at home and he also hurt himself).
He accidentally hurt his finger, leaving in part way in the door jam while he started to close the car door, but he didn’t cry. I told him I was proud of him that he didn’t cry; I told him that it was okay to cry but that I was proud of his bravery. I’m pretty sure that when I was around his age that my thumb was crushed in a van’s door and I cried a lot.
He got to watch much of this during the late afternoon for his down time:
