This year was the right time. David & I had decided a long time ago that if it was possible we wanted the boys to have a Christian education. When we knew we were moving to Colorado Springs one of the main reasons we were so ecstatic was because we knew they would have a Christian education. Our church houses a christian school! So awesome! The boys are attending Pikes Peak Christian School. We hope that they will be there for many years to come!
For the boys they could hardly contain their excitement for school. We got home from our week long trip to Louisiana on Sunday night. I had told the boys that when we got back they would be going school. They were ready! We walked in the door from a 12 hour drive and were asking about going to school! Good thing they only had to wait until Monday to go to open house.
When we got to open house we met their teacher, Mrs. Graham. We were able to play for a little bit in the room with the boys and then walk around the church/school. The boys were a little confused at first because it all looks like church to them, but I kept explaining that once they go to class with their teacher it will be different. After our walk through and visiting with everyone we headed home. Now....to wait for class time on Tuesday! :)
Tuesday morning came quickly. David stayed home that morning to be able to take them to school so we had breakfast as a family and talked about what to expect during the day. The boys didn't seem to have any apprehensions, just pure excitement. We got to the school (which was a zoo) and walked the boys to the classroom. They hung up their backpacks & then off they went. No goodbye, nothing. They were ready!
All in all I did fine. (I know this is not about me!) I am so excited to see them grow and learn, but it is a little bittersweet to let them go into someone else's care for a few hours. I didn't shed any tears, but they might have welled up a few times in my eyes :)
What a wonderful day! My boys are going to school....W-O-W
