Last week I did something that was very new to me. Being a stay at home mom, it’s not often I leave my kids in the care of someone else. The only time this happens is if I have a doctor’s appointment. But J got to experience something fun last week. We recently started going to a new church in our area and they were having Vacation Bible School. The church is equipped with the best children’s service and sunday school you could ask for and when I saw they had VBS for 3 thru K, I signed J myster up.
He loved it! He’s been talking for the last six months about when he will get to go to school and this wasn’t exactly “School” but it was still something for him to do and he got to learn about God and Jesus for two hours a day last week. He learned songs, and brought home the cutest craft projects. He woke up each morning just excited and ready to go, so I know that on that first day of Kindergarten, the only one crying will be me. 😉

He went to sit with the other kids and before I knew it, he was talking to them and having a great time. So I sneaked out. I just wanted him to have fun and feel accepted by other kids his age.
When he spotting me from the stage, I saw him mouth “Mommy!” That’s when the tears started flowing. I think part of me wanted him to miss me.
It was funny though, when I picked him up each day he would ask “Mommy did you miss me?” And I would say of course I did. To be honest, I was happy to use those two hours to the best of my ability, but I was always excited and eager to go pick him up and see how much fun he had.
And this was the adorable little presentation they did for the parents on the last day of VBS:
Even re-watching it, I get a little teary eyed. My baby boy is growing up and fitting right in with school aged children. It’s crazy that next summer he starts kindergarten!
Have your little ones done anything fun like this, this summer?
