Colin tells me yesterday, “So it looks like me and Anna Scott are going to get married”. Ack!!! What?!? This from my 6 year old who doesn’t like anything “girly”… When I asked him to explain he said “Well, we smile at each other and wink at lunch”. Oh okay. Is this how it starts?!

Class Parties

I keep asking myself why I signed up to help with both boys’ Valentine’s Day Parties this year.   And I’m still trying to figure out how they ended up on two different days??!

I really did plan to do all the shopping early this year. It was on my list at the end of January. But somehow I never got around to going to Target and getting all the “stuff”.  So, the last 48 hours have been a whirlwind. My house is covered with pink and red items — party favors, goodie bags, cups, plates, dinnerware, teacher gifts, cookies, Valentine’s cards, and LOTS of candy. I can’t wait to be free of it all tomorrow!! One down — one to go…

Seriously, my boys have the absolute best teachers at PCA (Palmetto Christian Academy). Mrs. Emily Faile is Davis’s teacher in K4 and we think the world of her. She engages the children from the moment they arrive at school and her classroom is a very nurturing place.

Miss Aimee Schultz is Colin’s Kindergarten teacher and we are so thankful for her! She has a very gentle way about her that is perfect for children. She prays for our children by name daily and has such a sweet spirit.

Both Colin and Davis love going to school each day and are learning so much.

Happy Valentine’s Day to these special ladies who take such good care of my boys while they are away from us!

They are each a blessing to our family!

My baby starts Kindergarten on Tuesday :(

August 14, 2009

Where does the time go?? Colin starts kindergarten on Tuesday. KINDERGARTEN!!! I remember the day he was born and the first time we made eye contact like it was yesterday.

I don’t know why I’m having such a hard time with this. A better mom would be so excited for her child! Maybe it’s because kindergarten seem so… final. Once you get on the “school train” it doesn’t stop until you go to college.

This summer has been a big one for Colin. He has become a determined young man with a will of his own. He has learned to dive, ride a bike without training wheels, do chores, and even completed a hike up and down Whiteside Mountain (that usually leaves most adults huffing and puffing) with amazing ease. He is reading well, writing beautifully and has become quite the little artist. Since he played flag football and t-ball last year, and completed golf and tennis camp again this summer, Colin has decided to play soccer this fall and is very coordinated.

We bought his uniforms for school a few days ago and I’m washing and ironing them today to get ready for school. He has a new lunchbox and school supplies so we’re ready to go.


I won’t let Colin see my tears on Tuesday but I’m sure that I’ll be shedding them!! Please pray that I won’t pass my feelings of anxiety and sadness along to my little guy. This weepy, sentimental mommy wants him to have a FANTASTIC first day and school year. After all, as good parents, aren’t we supposed to prepare our children to be independent? 😉
