First Day of School!!
So today both of our daughters got on the school bus and went to Rochester Elementary School for the first day of the new school year. There were no tears from anyone. I did feel a little strange...just that realization that someone else would be responsible for my child all day long.
I had to take Sophia to get her Kindergarten physical this afternoon and she had 3 boosters coming. I must admit that I enjoyed holding her a little tighter on my lap while the nurse gave the shots....cradling her face between my shoulder and my hand while she cried just a little.
Then in a classic Sophia moment at bedtime, we had just read about God telling Noah to build an ark. I was telling them that I don't know if I would have trusted God as much as Noah, and might have asked if God really knew what He was doing.....
Sophia: "But God never makes mistakes. If God and Satan were playing checkers and God was the red checkers and Satan was the black checkers, God would always win. Cause God is always better than Satan....like in a race....or brushing hair......."
Man, that kid makes me laugh!
