ex machina

the eric update - day 1894: first day of kindergarten!

one thousand eight hundred and ninety three days have passed by since odin was born on the fourth of july. thousands of days passing to bring us to this moment.

the first day of kindergarten.

it has all gone by in what seems like an instant.

and while it's somewhat of a bittersweet moment for us, odin was absolutely, positively enthusiastic about heading off to school.

"are you nervous?"

"no! not at all."

and so, that's how Odin's Adventures - The School Age Years, began.

simply. proudly. patiently waiting for his poppi to take yet another picture on the school stoop with his bestest buddy from the neighborhood who was also starting school today ( and his little brother who wanted to get in the photo op ).

by all accounts, much fun was had by all.

Still check in from time to time and I'm teary-eyed at this post. Go Odin!

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
