Today I’m taking the time to write you a letter. I’ve been wanting to do this for some time, but never seemed to find the right words. Today I hope I have found them. You are growing up so fast. It’s hard to believe that next fall you will be starting kindergarten. School is still a year away and though I have a lot of things I want to say to you about it , that will have to wait for another letter.
Today I’m writing to you about the classes you are just about to start. Thursday you begin your fall session of swimming. You will be in a class with other children so it’s important that you listen to the teacher. You also need to try new things like jumping into the pool on your own. These classes are for you to learn and to have fun.
In October you begin your second year of skating with Papa, I really hope that you remember how well you were doing in the spring. I remember how tough it was when you started skating last year, but by the end of it you were doing really well and you seemed to enjoy the time Papa and you spent on the ice. I hope you will enjoy it as much this year.
Even though the weather starts to get cold, this fall will filled with lots of fun family adventures, we are planning trips to a Pumpkin Patch, an Apple Farm, The Zoo, and even a trip on Santa’s Train. Of course that doesn’t even mention Halloween, this will be the fourth year you are dressing up, though I don’t think you remember being either a Pumpkin or a Lion. It beings a smile to my face when I think about how excited you are to be dressing up as a pirate this year.
Most of all Jacob I want you to remember that I’ll always be here for you.
