Today is Cody's last day of preschool. Tonight, his teachers will be honoring the children with a little graduation ceremony as they prepare for kindergarten.
As I've prayed through the decision this year about where to send Cody to school next year (public, private, or home), God has been faithful in guiding us every step of the way, and I truly feel in my heart that the best place for Cody is in our school district.
The thing that makes tonight so difficult is that our kindergarten program is full day and selfishly, I will miss Cody more than I can even put into words. I'm not telling him that of course...after all, he doesn't need to carry that burden! But my heart is sad today as we enter into this new chapter of his life. The "pre" years are behind us and his school career officially begins in August.
My heart is heavy today...maybe it seems silly. It is, after all, only preschool. It's just that my little boy is "graduating" to the next phase of his childhood, and I'm feeling really sad about it. I'm so proud of all he's accomplished so far, and I know that great things lie ahead for him. I know God will be faithful in making him the man He wants him to be. And I look forward to watching him continue to grow into that man.
But the fact still remains...preschool is over and I'm just....sad.
