It’s time. Somehow she has gone from a newborn baby in my arms to spending the entire day with the teacher and 19 other students. This is been a whirlwind of emotion. On one hand, of course, I’m extremely excited for her because she is beyond ready for this. And of the other hand, I want to grab her and lock her in the house and never let her go.
She is literally the most incredible little kid I’ve ever met in my whole life. She’s kind and sweet and extremely intelligent and funny. I know she’s ready and I’m excited to share her with other people but there is still this nagging question in the back of my mind “did I do everything I could to prepare her for this?” “Is there anything I’m forgetting?” “Is this the right decision for her and her family?” I feeling of peace to know that we are doing the right thing but I just hope and pray this year will treat her well.
We have chosen to put her at the school that our church recently started. Are extremely excited about it and they’re doing some really unique things. One of which was on the first day of school they hold a big pep rally and cheered all the families into the school. It’s been really neat to see a community of people and a staff of teachers come together with the same overarching purpose, to teach kids to love him and to love others.
Well Reese, I’m so proud of you and so excited for you to start this journey called school. You are a love of our life and our pride and joy. Have a blast sweet girl and learn as much as you possibly can!
