Second Grade!

Yesterday was Rylee's first day of 2nd grade!  When I picked her up, she had a huge smile on her face and told me what a great day she had!  She said she really liked her teacher, so that made me happy!  I can't believe that my baby girl is growing up so fast!  Time sure does fly!!!  It seems like just yesterday that I was dropping her off at her first day of PreK!  I went back and found her first day pictures from Kindergarten and 1st grade.  Apprantly, we had not entered the digital age when she was in PreK, and I don't have a scanner at the moment, so the last two years will have to do!  I look at the pictures and can't believe how much she has grown, especially since the Kindergarten picture!

We have been blessed with WONDERFUL teachers since PreK, and I am thankful that we live in a town with great school districts!  I have no doubt that we will have another great year!  I whisper a prayer each morning as she steps out of the car that she is protected (emotionally, physically, and spiritually) and that she is an example to her peers.  It's a very short prayer, but the Lord hears me!  I never know what awaits her as she walks through the front door of the school, but HE does!  Knowing that makes it MUCH easier to drop her off every day!  I leave the campus every morning trusting that the Lord WILL protect her!

   She and I talk almost everyday on the way to school about how she should treat her peers.  I explain to her that we have no idea what some of her peers have been through the night/morning before school, and that a simple smile, a "hello", or an invitation to play can make them feel much better!  I am so thankful that she seems to be developing a  compassionate heart , and I can only pray that quality will remain in her as she grows! 
Rylee, I hope you have a FANTASTIC year!!!
I LOVE YOU, sweet girl!
