Sorry, wrong pictures. This was Nate's first day at the New Republic training academy. Sorry for that embarrassing mistake. To make it up for you here's a video of Nate singing his school song:
One day Annie and I just heard him singing this.
It was a rocky start. We had to spend a lot of time on the phone and in conversations trying to get things done that were supposed to have been ready by the time Nate started. Everything from him having no place to go to the bathroom to the doctor never sending over his prescriptions and orders - which prevents his nurse from being able to do anything but watch.
On top of that, Nate hated it. He's come around more now but I think he still gets bored a lot. But to be fair it is school. We have a great nurse though and while Nate doesn't love school, I don't think he dreads it like he did a week ago and Annie and I have gotten to the point where we don't feel panicky all day. And if you haven't noticed - feeling panicky all day wrecks your intestines.
For the first time EVER, Nate is out of the care of a family member. It's scary but hopefully good for him. So far, everything is going well enough.
