First Day of Kindergarten!

Well, we made it! Ty went to his first day of Kindergarten on Thursday. It was a half-day so we are easing in, but all in all it went pretty well. He had fun, but is still not sure about all the new people and surroundings. I am hoping he will have a great week next week and really be excited. Momma is really struggling if I am being honest. I really didn't realize how hard this was going to be. Having been with him all the time for 5 years (and so thankful to have been able to), this is a BIG change. Your prayers for both of us as we transition would be greatly appreciated! I know he is going to a great school, and his teacher seems super sweet. "It will great, it will be great, it will be great......"."He will be fine, he will be fine, he will be fine.....".

How can this day really be here?
Somehow it just doesn't seem fair.
Just yesterday I was holding you tight
In that hospital room rocking chair.
I knew right away things were different.
My swelling heart would not be the same.
I promised to love and protect you.
Your dad and I gave you a name.
You are growing so fast and so wonderfully.
God has blessed you with so many gifts.
And now as you move on to school days
I can hardly imagine the shift.
I am so proud of you my sweet child.
You are one in a million indeed.
And I pray that these five years together
Have in your heart planted the seed.
I pray that you will be a light to the world.
To your peers that you'll always be kind.
I pray that you'll learn and develop, and grow
In your heart and your spirit, and mind.
And if you have hard days and feel all alone
Just know that I'll always be here.
I will welcome you home with a smile and a hug
And a loving and listening ear.
So go to school knowing you're loved, Child
By your Mama and so many more.
And look forth with joy and excitement.
For so many blessings the Lord has in store.

This one's too cute not to mention, and the summer posts come to an end...
