Kindergarten or Bust...

Today was Kindergarten Round-Up! That is where incoming 5 year olds get registered for Kindergarten and get assessed for the upcoming year!It was such an exciting and nerve racking day! They said she did great and is ready for school. I was secretly hoping they would say she wasn't ready!! But, I know that she is!





In the light of all that is surrounding us right now, I thought I would have no tears left. However, I found myself getting choked up as I sat there and watched people walk through the halls. I wanted to every teacher, secretary, administrater, cafeteria worker, etc. to look at my face and meet Laci. I wanted them to know her name. I wanted them to know how important she was to me and that they better take care of her! But, then I noticed the other kids registering and realized they were important to someone also!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths staight." Proverbs 3:5-6

Oh, Amber, I am getting choked up just thinking about you standing there wanting everyone to know your BABY! I think I will be an absolute wreck when our time comes!

She will love kindergarten though. She will do great too...she probably knows most of what they will teach her already! Be strong...I can tell even now that I will not be ready for Lilly to start kindergarten either!! We'll be praying for a smooth transition for you guys!

You will, of course, survive but there will be lots of tears as well! It is so much fun to watch them learn and experience the fun of kindergarten. It just comes all too soon. Connor will be 4 this summer and Kate 2 on Sunday. Just can't stand it! Post your blogs on the Facebook Gamma Nu blog list. It's on the Discussion page. Tell Sarah that her idea of homeschooling would be all recess:)
