Some things may change us, but we begin and end as family.

First Day of Kindergarten!
Well, school started off with a bang- well, more like a whimper...and some screaming....and some prying of little hands off my clothing so we could get him into the classroom.....oh, yes, that was my kid! The last one remaining, refusing, crying, screaming "no, no, no" as I and 3 other grown adults wrestle him off me and into the classroom where the door is then slammed shut quick enough that he can't run back out. Sigh. Rough. His teacher texted me a little while ago (apparently they do that now), and told me he is fine and happy and interacting. That's my boy.
I know he will love school, I hope he will love school. PLEASE let him love school! Its tough letting him go, knowing that others will influence him now. I hope the other kids are nice to him, that he will make good choices, that he will love to learn. So many hopes and fears resting on his sturdy, little shoulders, and he can't ever know that. He will see our smiles, hear our words of encouragement, all the while we will pray for this precious boy of ours. World, please be good to him. Please don't damage his gentle spirit. Don't tarnish his tender heart.
*I will add pictures soon! Can't get it to work on the iPad.
