On a side note. Silas is missing his big brother and sister. He almost does not know what to do. He wants to know when he is going to school. So I said we would have "mommy school" which usually means going to the store, or helping with wash or playing trains or whatever we decide to to do that day! Silas especially misses Sarah. Twice in the past two days I heard him calling "mama" so I answered him only to have him reply "Not you my other mama"...meaning Sarah. I just cracked up laughing. She really is like a mother hen sometimes. Got to love big sisters.

Yesterday was another step of letting go and it was harder than I thought. The night before school started I was tucking Moses into bed and he whispered "Mom can you pray for me?" I knew he was referring to school and as Mark and I prayed tears were rolling down my cheeks. Why does this feel so hard? He will be gone all day now under someone else's care and it is a deeper step in truly trusting and releasing him to the Lord. It is awesome though that we know his teacher and that he will be riding the same bus with the same bus driver as last year and hopefully know some of the same kids from kindergarten.
Yesterday morning Moses was so nervous and as much as I was trying to ease his fears I was nervous myself so much so that I forgot to take any pictures and forgot his lunch! What a mom! Then he came home looking awful. He had been complaining of not feeling good that morning but I just thought it was his nerves but by the time he came off the bus he had a fever and was looking pretty ill. He ended up falling asleep on the couch before 6:30. Talk about a first day of school! He is home sick today but will hopefully be back in the groove tommorow.
Moses, we are proud of the big six year old and first grader that you are!
Eating donuts at Browns
Hope waiting in line for the Ferris Wheel
The ferris wheel. See how high we are and no seat belts or bar to hold us in!
I used to love rides as a kid but I honestly was freaked out by the ferris wheel. We got stopped at the very top and were just swinging in the air and my palms got sweaty and my heart started racing! They were all laughing at me but I was so relieved when the ride was over!
Hopey at the park
