For those of you that read my blog, you know this is a recurring theme. I really don't know where the time has gone. For starters, my little baby boy turns a year old one week from today. The first six months I was in survival mode and these last six I've been in awe of how much he has changed, grown, and developed. He's SO cute, I simply can't stand it.
This week, I took my five year-old to pre-register for Kindergarten. Those of you that know me well were aware of the fact that I have spent this entire school year in prayer and in hot pursuit of knowledge regarding his education. I read everything I could get my hands on about homeschooling, spoke to many people and attended meetings, researched private Christian schools in the area, and sought out friends who have their kids in the public schools.
The Lord was faithful as we walked through these decisions together, and we earnestly sought His wisdom and prayed for an answer. The answer came in an unexpected way, but it became clear nonetheless, that we were to give Cody the opportunity to grow in the public school. We live in an award-winning district, and we have heard nothing but great things about our schools. After meeting the teachers, touring the building, and allowing Cody some time to explore, I felt a sense of peace about the decision.
I could go on and on about how we came to this, but the main reason for my post today is to share the realization that time truly is of the essence. I would not trade the last five years for the world. As hard as it is to think of my little boy going to school next year, I know that the Lord goes with him and that He will continue to grow and thrive as he has done in preschool these past two years. I pray that the foundational values that we have worked hard to instill in him will reap dividends as he continues to become the boy and man God has called him to be.
But the question still remains...where has the time gone??
