I thank everyone who sent emails, commented on my tearful blog posts, and Facebook page, because your encouragement carried me through the school year. THANK YOU for listening to my fears and reservations of sending Firstborn to school. THANK YOU for being there and telling me "It'll be alright" when I didn't see ALRIGHT in my face.
Firstborn is excited and ready for the next year and this Mama is ready to relax. It was exhausting and stressful, yet the greatest lesson I learned is that I can't be afraid to let my children fail. I've got to let them go and stop saving them from every scratch, fall, and disappointment in life.
Life happens and our children must learn to live THEIR life.
