Mixed Emotions

Noah will be going back to school next week!!! Last year, he went Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:00-11:20. This year my big boy will be going Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:00-2:00!!!
What am I going to do?!?!?!?!?
A very big part of me is so sad. The summer has flown by. We have had a lot of fun.
The Florida Vacation, The weekend in Tennessee,...
that right there is more than most people do in a full year!!!
Plus the little things we've done,
Burris, Splash Park, Summer Reading Program, Beach, Noah having his
cousins over, Kids Krusade, etc.
I am thankful for all of that, because we also had:
Two transmissions go out,
A master cylinder go out,
The air conditioner in our house to go out,
One set of brakes messed up (but easily fixed!),
A freezer full of a month worth of meat quit working,
Ya know, life happened to us in more ways than one!!!
Either way, on Tuesday, all of that will be behind us, and my boy will be back at school!
I'm going to miss him so much this school year! From August to May is a long time!!!
On the other hand, there's a golden, wait a minute.
On the other hand, Noah has asked me every day this summer (literally) if he
can go to school today and see his teacher!!!
Noah has missed school as much as I will miss him!
He's missed that controlled enviornment that has helped him so much.
He's missed his friends.
He's missed his teachers.
He has missed school!
turns out I am human.
I know, shocking.
But, as much as I will miss my sidekick,
I am looking forward to:
walking every day,
"free time",
more time to read,
more time to pray,
two big bags of cross-stitch stuff in my closet (thanks Aunt B.),
and how happy he'll be at school!
In conclusion, I like to ramble on!!!
And I will miss my boy so much, but I am so happy for him to be happy.
He just needs more than I can give.
Unfortunately, public schools can give him more than me right now!!!
"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens."Ecc. 3:1
*~Turn turn turn.~*
So, I feel that Noah going to special education pre-k
will be a huge part of his testimony.
When he can say, "My dr said I wouldn't,"
he can say, "My God said, OH yes he will!"
That helps me wash away some of the guilt of leaving him.
So next week, be ready for pictures of that first day!
