I'm the mom to a kindergartener!

Ok, so I have to admit that up until three days ago I was TOTALLY ready and prepared for my boy to become a kindergartener. I, however, have been pretty emotional over the last few days and haven't been able to sleep very well. I figured since he was in pre-school last year three days a week that I would be completely ok with him starting school. I know for certain that he is ready and well prepared but I have been praying a lot because he is about to be entering a whole new chapter in life. He will not be under my wing all day long nor will he be in a Christian atmosphere anymore. There will be new challenges to face each day and new friends to make, and I guess the question I keep asking myself is, have Dan and I prepared him enough to take on the world? I have total confidence in him but still it's a lot to think about. I am excited at the same time for him to have new experiences in life. It's because of those experiences that he will truly understand all that we have taught him and he will be able to use the tools that we have given.

So, to my sweet son...May you know that God will always be near you to help you make decisions in life. Even though we may get scared from time to time and don't always know the answers to what life has in store for you, you should also know that mommy and daddy will always be there for you and that God will always protect you. Keep your head high and focus on what the bible says and you will be a mighty warrior in this world! Remember, "Be strong and brave because God is with you!" Joshua 1:9
