I can't believe another month has nearly passed. The girls attended a princess party this month and had a ton of fun. The photos are of that and just some fun play at home. I had a "moment" yesterday. We are thinking of putting Davie in a kindergarten class this next year and to be enrolled every child must pass an entrance exam. So, yesterday I had to take Davie for that exam. As we got out of the car I reached down to hold her hand and it happened. Time stood still, just for that moment and I thought, "Where has the time gone? How can this be? Is it really time to hand her over to someone else to teach already?" My eyes filled with tears and I realized again that another of my babies is growing up. Still, I can't believe it. She took my hand and walked with such excitement to the classroom, walked inside and took her test. No worries, no "moments" for her, just excitement for the future, as it should be. I told Sarah last night that it just doesn't get any easier, no matter how many times I've done it. Letting go is always hard. Giving up complete control of all that enters into their little lives is extremely difficult. Handing our children to someone else and trusting God to be with them in the world is an act of faith. No matter what school or event we allow them to be a part of. For me as a mom I take that moment and commit in faith to the God who loves her best. I let go and see what He does. Amazed again that He has allowed this broken vessel to parent at all. What a privilege. What an honor. What a lot of work and pain and heartache. What a step of faith He calls us to as moms. Hang tough moms and remember Galations 6:9"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Love you, Jackie Sue p.s. Davie passed her test with flying colors.
