So Tuesday was a bittersweet day for me. I got up knowing full well that it was going to be a difficult day for me. It was the day that I would register my baby for Kindergarten. I prayed a lot and recited Isiah 41:10 a million times. As much as I know that this is the next chapter of our lives, and that God knows best, it's still hard to close one chapter.
Here's what my baby used to look like. It was a couple of months before his 1st birthday. Sometimes I wish he was just this little again. How I miss those days.
Here he is walking up to school. He's so excited to get signed up for school. I on the other hand was a ball of nerves, of course he didn't know that.
He was really good the whole time I was filling out the paper work. It took a little less than an hour to complete. I didn't let him take in his DS, so instead he drew in my planner. He loved the "clues" that were all over the sidewalk out front. The "clues" are dog paws. The school mascot is a Husky, which is adorable. I got done with all the paper work, and the lady in charge of registration gave me some paperwork. She told me about the Meet the Teacher day, volunteer options, and the website to see the calendar.
He is officially registered for Kindergarten, and will start in August. I will be fine. My Dad called after I got home. I told him where I'd been, and he asked why I sounded so depressed. I said because I kind of am. He assured me that I should do what I planned, which is volunteering to get involved. He also told me that we would be fine, and that if I didn't like after awhile that I could always home-school Nick.
After a few tears, prayers, and talking to my Dad I decided that we would be fine. I'm going to volunteer at Nick's school, enjoy this new chapter of our lives, and trust God. He knows what's best for us.
My next challenge is finding a good backpack. My son is 3'9.5" and will probably be close to 4' before school. He's always been a tall boy, so those little Kindergarten backpacks won't cut it. A regular size one would fit him better, but I want one that's going to last for awhile. Anyone have a suggestions?
