Many of you know that we have struggled with Jackson getting the sleep he needs when he's at daycare. He's so happy and laid back that even without his naps, he seems okay, but by the time he gets home you can see it in his eyes. He still sleeps great at night, but the little time we have with him in the evenings during the week is not nearly as much fun because he's so exhausted, which is a big part of the reason we've decided to change day care facilities. Today was his last day at the old place, and leaving was very emotional for all of the adults. We know how much Jackson loves his teachers and how much they love him!
We know next week will be challenging as Jackson gets to know new people, a new environment, and a new schedule, but we're hoping it's all for the best. We took advantage of the holiday on Monday and checked out several places close to us. Of course, the one place that we all felt really good about didn't have any openings, so we had our name added to the waiting list and resigned ourselves to staying where we were; just trusting God to open the right doors for Jackson. Not even an hour after coming to that conclusion, the day care we really liked called and said they were promoting 2 kids to the next classroom on Monday and had a spot for Jackson!
In the pictures below you can see the kind of time we get to enjoy with Jackson in the mornings as we all get ready. We're hoping this new place will provide a better environment for him, so we can enjoy this kind of time in the evenings too!
