It’s the middle of July and I am freaking out!!!
My little boy is starting KINDERGARTEN this year. I cannot believe in a little over a month I will be walking him to his school and dropping him off to meet his teacher and new friends for the first time. I can tell you right now that he is super excited. Going to school is all he ever talks about. At least once a day Gideon makes some comment about meeting new friends, or meeting his teacher, or getting to play at recess. It warms my heart to see his passion and I love it so very much. I just worry about how he will do. He has never really been around kids his own age. We tried daycare and preschool before and everyone said he was a problem child and was not welcomed at their facility. We have NEVER had a problem like they would describe until after he was removed from their care. It makes it hard for me to trust people in that type of setting with my child. (If I ever have any more children, and one day we will, I will never take them to any of the places I took Gideon.)
I know the teachers in a school setting are different and they will not treat him that way, but I still just worry about how he will adjust. For the last year or two he has been going to work everyday with his daddy and I just hope we all can adjust to him being in school. With it being summer Gideon stays with me at home, unless we decide to go to work with Josh, and when we stay home, Josh always makes a comment about how weird it was because it was so quiet with out the little man there and how it is going to be weird at first when the little man starts school. I guess on the bright side he will be right across the street from me everyday so if something were to happen I am right there. I just really hope everything turns out okay. I pray everyday that God would give us all strength and wisdom as we head off on this wonderful new journey in all of our lives.
I honestly cannot wait for Gideon’s first day of school. Yeah I might be freaking out, but I know it will be good for all of us. I especially cannot wait to go pick him up at the end of the day and hear about all of the amazing things that he got to do and all of the great friends he will make, as well as all about his teacher who I just know he is going to love.
I hope you all will follow us on our journey this year as I will try to post as often as possible about Gideon’s wonderful year of Kindergarten. If you have any tips for me or any moms, comment below. Every little bit of courage or wisdom will help us all.
