David goes to school

So here it is - the very 1st day David goes off to school.

When I woke him up this morning he shot up out of a deep sleep and exclaimed " 1st day of school don't want to be late - where is my clothes?!"

Last night as we were praying he asked God to help him remember all the things he needed to remember. Then as I turned and asked if he wanted to talk about anything else before going to bed he said no, then briefly got teary eyed and said he would miss me tomorrow. That was one of those moments a mom can live a whole year off of. I will miss him too.

There he goes - my first born - off into the world. Surprisingly I felt no anxiety. (because I spent most of the wee hours this am pleading the Lord's protection over him)

A gradual letting go of my baby bird - fly little one fly.
