We took Max to his new elementary school to meet with his kindergarten teacher one on one for the first time. Dara and I waited in the hall while the teacher talked with Max about his new class, asked him to spell his name, his address, colors, etc.

Dara looked at me about ten minutes after we dropped him off and said, “Why am I so nervous right now?” I felt the same way. It is so strange to be letting him go into this new stage of life.

I’m so proud of my little guy. He is so excited to learn and meet new friends. We are learning a lot about letting go and trusting that God will watch over Max after we have had him in our care all day, every day for over five years.

His teacher came back out and had a lot of nice things to say about Max and how happy she was to have him in her class.

First full day of school is Friday. Here we go!
