Today my sweet Corban walked out of the house a Third Grader!
I don't know why, but third grade seems so BIG to me! Like at the beginning of anything new, I could tell Corban was nervous. We've talked and prayed over this upcoming school year so much, but as morning dawned, Corban's stomach was filled with butterflies. I know he's going to have a GREAT year and once we find our groove, it will all be good!
Corban requested cinnamon rolls for his "back to school" breakfast and so that's exactly what we had.
Shane was working from home today, so he could walk Cor to school in the morning, AND was able to see him get off the bus this afternoon!
This morning, our street was a sea of people, as everyone eagerly made their way to the start of a new year.
Our cool Gator mascot was on hand to welcome students as they made there way into the school building.
I was biting my lip and trying hard to hold back the tears as we waved goodbye! I don't know why, but it's always so hard for me to let go!
At the beginning of every school year, the boys and I pick out a new devotional to read before they head out the door each morning.
I really liked this one because the lay out was simple, short, and applicable for their day ahead.
Shane and I also chose a verse for Corban to meditate on this year too.
During our devotions this morning, we shared that verse with him.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
I am so... proud of my
little BIG guy and trust the Lord to use Corban mightily for HIS glory this year!
It's gonna be a SUPER year!!
(Y'all can start praying for me now...Riley starts kindergarten on Tuesday!)
