We went to meet Natalie’s teacher today! Natalie will be going to Pre-K for 3 days a week. The teacher seems really nice and very friendly. And Natalie…well, she was so excited! She was a little timid walking in there but warmed up right away. It was funny, because as I was getting ready this morning, I felt a little nervous, myself. And even wondered to myself why.
I think it is because “Going to school” or “Back to school” always evokes anticipation when you hear the phrase. I can remember when I was little always wondering what the year would be like…the teacher, the friends, the fun stuff, and I guess learning. And now for my little girl, I anticipate that for her. Not to mention that I anticipate what my life will now look like with her in school 3 days a week. I know one day a week I will do Bible Study at church, and then the other days Nicholas and I will be hanging out. I have also started doing more ministry things with Priority Associates, so I am sure that will come in to play some too. And another thing I do know, is I will miss being around her as much.
So, she starts school on Monday and she just can’t wait. My oh, my, how she is growing up!
