Yes, he is ready!  Not sure if mommy was completely ready, but Sam sure was.  Today was Sam's first day to go to big school... First grade.  I had worries, I prayed and thought about him all day long.  Was he having fun? What was the teacher like?  Was he making friends? Did he enjoy it? Was he being sweet and kind and all the things we have taught him?  Will he like this school? Will he learn? Will he eventually enjoy reading?

So I thought and prayed and thought and prayed..... and then a big thunderstorm came the same time carpool started.  So I waited in line and wondered, "What will he say when he gets in the car?"  After the storm passed and they let the kids out of the school, the carpool line started moving.  I finally arrived at the front of the school, the car doors open and in bounces Sam. He had a big smile on his face and said, "Oh, I want to go to this school forever and forever! I love it!"  And the entire way home we talked and chatted away about his first day of school and how great it was and how he wants to go there all the way through college. I said a little prayer to myself, "Thank you God, thank you for caring about my little one and giving him a great first day!"  And I want to give a big hug and a bouquet of roses to his teacher and tell her "thank you for caring about my little one as well".
