What a morning!! My baby, Mari Morgan, has officially started Kindergarten, and Nathan is now a 3rd grader. Wow! Time flies! Both of them woke up ready to go to school. As we pulled out of the driveway, I couldn't believe this day was actually here. "I am taking both of my children to school", I thought. My mind was overtaken by this thought. It took forever to find a parking place. Nathan and I walked MM to her room, and helped her put her things away. Then, it was kiss and a hug, and a quick bye-bye. Can you believe I did not cry? She was so brave and confident, and so at ease. That sure does make a difference. As we walked out of the room, I felt this sick feeling inside. "God will take care of her", I said to myself. I swallowed a big lump in my throat, and headed to Nathan's room. Nathan's teacher, Mrs. Miller, met him with a smile. She asked him to put a clothespin on his shirt as a name tag for the day. He was shaking from head to toe, and could not get it on. I put it on for him, and helped him find his desk. He sat down, and I gave him a hug and a kiss and told him he would be fine. He smiled and said, "I know". I left his room a little shaky myself, but knew he would be taken care of. I love DCES, and am so thankful for their wonderful, Godly teachers. Praying this will be a great year!!
My sweet Mari Morgan
