Today was our first day of Kindergarten for our son. He has been ready since he was three to go to big boy school, as he calls it. We drive by this school almost daily and he has been excited for a long time. So today has finally came and gone.
Up until today I was a nervous wreck to send my baby boy off to school. We have been blessed to be a part of our church home the past two years with preschool and pre-k. He had amazing and loving teachers and we miss them. We have had the privilege to have them a second year for little sister though.
We walked him into school this morning and he gave me a hug and smiled bye to me. I stood their heartbroken yet so proud! Sad that he was leaving me each day for the rest of his life now but so very proud of the little boy he is. Such a smart, loving, gentle, and respectful boy. He melts my heart daily.
Our first day was not exactly how I planned. I planned to be anxious and worried about him but God gave me this unbelievable calmness and peace all over of this day. I came home and his favorite blanket was on the couch and I was a little emotional but God is amazing. Miss C came over to me and was thrilled to work on ABC’s again since she starts school next week. Plus my husband and his funny personality was able to cheer me up.
I was able to eat lunch with him at school and that is when the plans of the day changed. My kids were bitten by something this weekend. I don’t know if it was a spider or a mosquito but today it took a turn for the worse. Their poor bites on their legs had swelled up and was very red. Mr. C’s leg however had doubled in size since I dropped him for school.
So our first day ended up at the doctor’s office, receiving two prescriptions, praying these bites get better, and Miss C getting her four-year old shots. Four of them. This was tough for all three of us. But we survived.
I was truly reminded how faithful our God is. Even in the storm, small or big, he was there. To comfort and provide the strength this mom needed today. God reminded me of my post Messy Days I recently wrote. In the midst of these messy unexpected days focus on him not the problem. He will provide and give you peace.
The best part of the day. Mr. C is ready for a day two of Kindergarten and that is peace in itself.
