School Starts For My Son

My little baby boy (he's 5 now) starts Kindergarten tomorrow. He went to preschool last year (but only 3 days a week and only for 2.5 hours a day). Kindergarten is all day, 5 days a week, at a building that has 8th graders in it. It's hard for me to put my child there. I'm excited for him and I think he has a great teacher (we've been told that by friends). I won't see him at lunch time. I won't have as much influence on him as before (at least not in terms of time spent with him).

I don't doubt God's sovereignty. It's just a scary thing for this dad. I'm sure I'll shed a tear or two tomorrow when I send him into the lion's den.

I don't have a lot of deep thoughts. That's just what's on my heart now.

God is so big and so powerful!!!! I echo your concern about the Lions Den. I have prayed much for Ben and for Emma. May there little light shine so bright that when people will see their lives and they glorify God in Heaven.

There is absolutely no doubt that Benjamin is the most amazing five-year-old I've ever known. I can foresee him doing so well in school...most likely better than I did. My only recollection of kindegarten is chocolate cupcakes and gerbils. Hopefully his is better. Much love!
