Time flies....

I just tucked my baby into bed, read books, prayed, kissed and then as I left...cried. Why am I taking this Kindergarten thing so bad? I just feel so sad. I stood in her room remembering where her baby bed once was and how I would rock her at all hours of the night praying for her. Now, she has big girl stuff and now I step on Polly Pockets and Barbie shoes! ha Oh, I know she will do good. I know she will make friends. Its just I have been with her 24/7 for the last 5 years and tomorrow I will come home alone. I know it sounds pitiful and I know this time tomorrow night I will be fine. Really I will. Time just goes by too fast. Please keep her in your prayers as she starts this new adventure of her life. Because, watch out Kindergarten...here comes "LuLu".

As I tucked my other sweet baby into bed, we talked, we prayed and yes, he still gives me kisses. ha ha And thankfully he is full of excitement. His clothes were laid out in perfect order. Shirt, shorts, belt, socks and new Nike Shocks. He has been my little fashion bug lately. He has always loved shopping. HA This is the first year in a long time he hasn't cried from worrying about the first day of school. I think his teacher is awesome and he is really excited about having her. I just know it is going to be a good year...I can feel it in my bones. Or I guess I could say my mommy "gut" feeling. He also has friends in his class this year. Last year, remember...BAD! So, this year we have people we know and a great teacher. We are blessed. I also ask that you keep Rooster in your prayers for a good year, good choices and good times. Man, I love that boy.

I will post first day of school pictures soon. I love those first day of school pics, you know, the ones in front of the house with the backpacks on and ready to go. Mom used to always take one of us when we were little. I love those. :) Oh, the memories!

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. Philippians 1:3

Unlike Silken, I am not holding back tears. I am sitting her sobbing because like you, I remember tucking you in on the first night before of school when you were 5. Yes, time does fly. I love you sweetie. Talk to you sometime today several times, I'm sure. Love my babies as they go out of the car and tell them Neena is free for " popknots" if needed.

It doesn't seem possible that Reid and Macy are both going off to school. You are blessed to have such good kids--I love them and it will be interesting how this year works out for them and for Mommy too. Love you and yours. Nana

I'm here...just know that. If you need to talk, go get out of the house..whatever..I'm here. :) They'll be great..but you know that.

Your children are so blessed to have a loving mommy! I'm sure in 5 years there will be many tears in this house as the boys hit kindergarten. It is hard to believe M is in school. I completely remember holding her all wrapped up on April 27, 2002. R will be a great leader at school. He has such a tender strength about him. I know he will be a wonderful example for many kids. Hang in there! Hope the chocolate was smmothing! :)

They did great today. I checked on them and I will make sure they are happy and safe and will promptly call you otherwise! :o) You have given them the gift of yourself and your faith...how could they not be anything but okey dokey!

*I was only holding back my tears for his sake you know!*

Jenna said...

Okay, well I'm crying too... I just rocked my baby to sleep, and I'm already crying about the day she'll go to kindergarten.

Love your sweet kids...and you too! Hope it was a fantastic day...

Heather--

I just teared up reading your story knowing that in a few years my sweet children will be going off to school. Time really does fly. I know Macy will love school and do so well--she is such a social butterfly! I am looking forward to being at MDO with you this year! If you ever need to chat or talk or even a hug--I'm there. I'm so excited that Ashlyn is having you as a teacher this year--she loves you so much already! I am truly blessed to have you as a friend!

Holly said...

Your post was so sweet--I could feel the love and concern you have for R. and M. as they start this new phase. I'm sure this year will be wonderful for both, expecially with the answered prayers of the teachers and friends in class!!

I can't wait to hear more and see pictures. Love you!!

Robyn said...

I'm praying for you and them and I know you all will have a super year. Your kids are truly blessed with wonderful parents! Keep up the prayers and all will be great. I saw that your friend Robin is there too... that's always good to have someone you know there who can pop in and give you updates to ease your mind! love ya, R

Mine went to school for the first time too, but only to Mother's Day Out- and I still cried! I'm scared for Kindergarten!
Love you!
