You just left for school on your first day of third grade. You are starting at Buford this year and I am so excited for you as well as nervous. I know you are super nervous too and told you last night that all you have to do is take a deep breath and say a little prayer to calm your nerves when you feel like it's too much. I hope you remember to do this throughout the day. Switching schools was a big decision for all of us and one that had me praying everyday for you. I do hope we made the right decision and that God lets us know quickly if it was the thing to do. At Open House, I felt as though you are going to be a great fit at Buford so I do hope it comes "easy" to you. While I am nervous for you, I am also a little sad that you are already in THIRD grade!!! What in the world?! I remember third grade so very well and enjoyed it so much. I hope the same holds true for you, one because you MY kid and two, because you are awesome. :)
I feel like we had a wonderful summer and know now that school has started, the year will fly by. I really don't want that to happen but there is nothing I can do about it. You spent the summer kicking butt on swim team, doing beautifully on your All-Star team, playing with your siblings, enjoying Cub Scout camp and relishing every moment at the beach. You also got to take a trip with Grandma and Grandad to Ruby Falls and were a huge help to me with Anna and Kyle. I sure hope you think you had a great summer.
I love you so much, kid and can't wait to hear what you think after your first day. I will be praying for you and all your new friends and teachers today (while I do laundry and keep Kyle alive and Anna entertained).
So proud of you,
