"Hey mom? Dad? I really don't think I'm going to be going outside for recess today. (Rumbling thunder shakes the windows.) It seems there's a lot of participation coming from the sky."
Yes. We are having a great deal of "participation" today, so I drove Cody down the block to the bus stop and let him sit in the van until his bus arrived. We prayed for his day, and as he jumped out of the van to meet the bus, that familiar twinge I felt when I watched him get on the bus for the first day of kindergarten seemed to creep back in. He didn't want to go to school today, and I must admit, I didn't want him to go.
My little man. I do love him so.
