And although it was quite hard on momma's heart you headed off to Kindergarten like you have been ready your whole lives.
Its a joy to hear about how you are doing in your school work, but also as you socialize with your classmates. Now that you are in Kindergarten, you have practiced tornado drills, and fire drills, and even lockdown/intruder drills. Each of these drills have had follow up conversations at home, and as much as it feels like you are too young for some of these talks, it is also a gift that you come home and want to ask us the hard questions. We pray that we will always be a safe place for hard questions.
This turning six, it feels like a weird milestone for a momma. So big, but still so small. There is a little more letting go, sending you off to grow, and welcoming you home to refresh. Little increments now, that will continue to ask for more letting go as you grow older. I sense it now, especially on the days when you try something new. Like how you were afraid of the ocean at first, but then couldn't stay out of it. Or when you did the Spartan Race and I worried that it might be too hard, or you might get hurt. You just go out there with all you have and do your best. We are so proud of you! We are so glad God made us family. We pray that you will always seek Him in your life, listening for His voice and following where He leads! Happy happy happy (belated) birthday! I know SIX is going to be great!
