Tomorrow is the start of First Grade. It seems like just yesterday you were headed to Kindergarten. Although sending you off tomorrow will come with a few less nerves for myself, letting go really never gets easier.
We've had a big week you and I. If this is any indication of how the year will go, we have a lot of growing to do. I promise we are in this together. You, daddy and I we are a team.
This week you have struggled with and overcome some pretty big fears. You have watched your closest friends get placed in classes together while you are going off on your own. You have expressed to us your fears of making new friends, missing your old and adapting to new expectations. We have watched your wonderful school come to your aide as they have done all possible to ease your mind. You loved your "private tour" of your classroom.
We are so thankful that you came to us and expressed how you were feeling. Please always trust us the way you have this week. The couselor at school said she knows you are a leader because you are so thoughtful and sensitive Yes, you are. You are a thinker my dear. This side of you is so endearing. But, just like your mama all that thinking can sometimes stress us out.
Rest assured. This First Grade year is gonna be great. Because God has planned it just for you. He has mapped it out and as always we pray that you stay on the narrow path he is leading you on.
""For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future"" -Jeremiah 29:11
