I went by the elementary school earlier today to see if any spots had opened up for Libby. As I walked down the hallway toward Ms. Sanders' classroom I ran into an old friend that used to teach at Redcliffe Elementary. Libby's speech teacher was also in the hallway and was thrilled to see me there. She accompanied me to the classroom and showed me around. Ms. Sanders said that she was planning on calling me in the afternoon to let me know that there was an opening in the morning class.

I am so scared. Libby starts 4K tomorrow. She has to be in the classroom at 7:35am. Most mommies have the whole summer, or for that matter their whole lives to prepare to send their little ones off to school. I've been planning to homeschool since before the kids were born. But this has all happened so suddenly and I just don't know how to feel about it. It's in Libby's best interests for her to go to 4K, to help with her speech and social development.

Dear Lord, please watch over my sweet little girl. Please help her to gain what she needs from this experience. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Good luck tomorrow. I am sure that it will be fine, and that she will gain what she needs from the classroom experience. Hopefully once this year is over you will beable to keep her at home for the rest of her schooling.

We're very hopeful that she will gain what she needs from this and start homeschooling next year.

Yesterday went very well and she was eager to go back this morning. And luckily for me it only lasts about three hours.

On a side note, her teacher, Ms. Sanders, said that it would be fine to pick her up a little early on Thursdays so that we will be able to make it to playgroup by 11am. They enjoyed that so much last week. Thanks again for inviting us.
