A Little Sad....

Hey Y'all!  Hope you're doing great!  It's been over a week since I've blogged and I'm sorry.  I've been trying to get in every minute I can with Robbie before I have to go back to work.
I am terribly saddened by the fact that our summer vacation ends this week.
I had big plans for us to go do a lot of activities together this summer, but life happens and we barely did anything.  Daddy getting Guillian-Barre Syndrome, Mammaw's mind continuing to worsen, Big Daddy's Granny dying, Floor installation taking longer than we expected, etc.
This is Robbie's last year of daycare. 
This time next year, I'll be shopping for items to fill his bookbag and check off things from the supply list that his school will send early in the mail.
This time next year I'll be crying HARD knowing that my little boy ain't little anymore.
This time next year I'll be worrying how he'll do in school--if he'll behave, etc.  He's wonderful but he knows a lot already---he's reading books to me at night.  Will he be still while they're learning the things he already knows or will he act like me and end up getting in trouble because he's entertaining himself out of boredom?
This time next year, I'll be celebrating in the fact that my bank account will be $533 fatter every month because that's what we pay in daycare charges.
This time next year, I'll be in a daze 24/7....not believing that he's starting school already.  Seems like only yesterday he entered our home and stole our hearts!
This time next year, I'll be thanking God because I have the chance and opportunity to FEEL these emotions that only a mother understands.
Lord, please help me to continue to strive to be a good mama; one that will listen and love with patience and understanding.  Lord, when I'm in one of those "moments" that I don't want to ever forget, please help me to remember.  Lord, please be with my boy throughout his last year of daycare.  Please keep him safe, let him learn to share and love his friends, let him be the best he can be so that others will one day see YOU in him!

So sorry your time away from school is coming to an end. But you've accomplished alot this summer, even though your time with Robbie was not as much as you would have hoped. Still you were home with him all this time, so that counts!! :o)

I hope your school year is great! I always hate going back too! Love the time at home with my girls in the summer....I spend a lot of time praying people see Jesus through my girls too!

Oh, what a beautiful post! I can totally relate....I bawled when I sent Matthew off to kindergarten, and I'm sure I will with Luke too! What you said about "help me to remember" touched my heart so much. I'm in that stage with Luke. He's 2 1/2, and is just so sweet. I'm cherishing all these moments! Hope your school year gets off to a GREAT start!
