New Beginnings

Another new beginning today as Samuel set out on his first day of Junior Kindergarten. Again, easier on the boy than on his mama!
Samuel on His 1st Day of JK
Samuel's sweet teacher sent home a card today with the following:

I gave you a little wink and a smile
As you entered my room today.
I know how hard it is to leave
And simply walk away.
You've been together for several years.
You've been a loving guide.
But now the time has finally come,
To leave your child by my side.
Just know that as you drive away
And tears may start to flow,
I'll love your child as I would my own
And help your little one to grow.

So much truth (and yes, the tears did flow as we drove away) ... we know that Samuel will be safe, he will be loved and he will grow and learn.

Sam's teacher sounds like a sweetheart! Praying for both your boys as they begin the adventure of a new school year, asking God to enable them to grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with both Him and those around them. And praying for your heart, too, as you greet this additional milestone. We sure are blessed, aren't we?
