out of the mouths of babes. embrace it.

defined by wikipedia as 'childrens garden'
(wow.  that explains a lot)
Caleb's all smiles for today

he's been sufficiently kissed
(if that's possible)

he's had the annual 'back to school' trip
to chuck e cheese with the fam
but here's the real sign my sweet boy is ready
for the wiles of kindergarten:
(at least for this mom's heart....)

at registration
Caleb's teacher gave him a
'kindergarten confetti' poem
(and. a bag of confetti)

the poem speaks of the night before kindergarten
and how there's excitement and it's hard to sleep
so says the poem....
sprinkle the kindergarten confetti under your pillow
and then you'll be able to sleep before your big day

Caleb's matter-of-fact response?!

'or I could just pray.'

{and that's exactly what I've been doing all night. and now all day}

have a super day
lifting up all your cares and concerns to the only One
who truly gives rest to the anxious heart.
{ philippians 4:6-7 }

  8. Amen! First I was loving the teacher's idea (I still do) but then when your son said "I could just pray" ....Wow. You've got a great son...but I know you already know that!
