I knew this moment would come, but I didn’t think it would happen this fast! So obviously, after preschool comes kindergarten. But I feel like this sort of snuck up on me! Our summer flew by! Before I knew it, we were into August! Two weeks ago I checked the calendar and realized Turner’s first day of kindergarten was August 14th! I was sure it wasn’t until at least the 20th. But there I was, scrambling to get prepared for Turner’s first day of kindergarten!! Cramming in pool trips, beach trips, playground trips, coffee dates, walks in Charleston, buying uniforms, & picking out school supplies.
Yesterday, Turner and I went to “Meet the Teacher”. His teacher is so adorable and I know he’ll love her! She’s sweet and spicy and organized. The perfect mix for a kindergarten teacher!
This morning was The Big Day. Turner was super excited. He seemed un-phased. Meanwhile, my mind was exploding with thoughts! What a moment this is! It’s the beginning of school, for real! He’ll do such great things! Soon, he’ll be moving across the country to go to college. MY BABY!!!! I tried reining it in, but as we walked into our school, Turner in his handsome uniform, I just broke into sobs.
This is a huge moment. I didn’t realize how huge it would actually be until I experienced it! It’s such a mix of emotions. Turner’s no longer a baby! He’s such a sweet boy. I know God has amazing things in store for him! He is so special and will do great things, even in kindergarten! I can’t wait to see him flourish and I’m SO proud of what he’s become. I’m honored to be the one gifted with such a perfect boy!
