Sending five of my kids off on the first day of a new school year, in a new school, was bittersweet. This will be Noah’s very first year away from home, and I know I will miss him in a different way than I will miss the others.
This morning, as I said goodbye to each of them – with lots of hugs and kisses – I prayed that God would go before them and help us all transition well.
I was excited to hear all about their first day of school and rushed to pick them up. Josh and Noah get out earlier than my middle schoolers, so we had a chance to chat before the big kids got home.
Josh really likes his teacher, has already made a couple of friends, and said that “school is awesome”!
Noah had a fabulous first day. He said that he loves school and “can’t wait until tomorrow!” I really didn’t need to worry about him at all…
Ben and I had oour first day of school today, too. Well, sort of… We started the morning with a Bible lesson, math, and reading time. We then spent the afternoon getting the test of our school room organized and ready for the rest of the year. I have a feeling our official first day will be next Tuesday, after the holiday weekend.
