Sending Liam to Preschool

We decided that Liam should start going to school soon. I really wasn't ready to take this step and truth be told, I'm nervous about my baby boy spending his mornings away from me. But over the last few months Liam has grown so much. I see him with an intense eagerness to learn and play with other children. I see him slowly detaching himself from me and being more open to spending time away from me. It's bittersweet, but it's life. I'm excited for him to start school and while I'm sure he will cry at first (as will I), I know he will grow to love it and will really thrive in that environment. 

He will start by going to a summer school/camp at a local Montessori school. I actually used to work at that school before Alex and I were married. I know and trust the director and I think he will have fun. He will go three days a week in the mornings which I think will help him transition to the school environment. It's a more relaxed time since they will have lots of fun summer activities for the children. 

In the Fall he will hopefully begin class at the school run by our church. He's still on the waiting list. Alex works on the same campus as the school, just one building over, so it makes me feel better that he is nearby in case of an emergency. 

Again, I'm nervous to send him off to school already, but I think it is for the best. Taking care of Isabel can be all-consuming! I feel like I spend a lot of time either feeding her or putting her to sleep and Liam gets bored. He needs more than I can give him right now. I really think going to school will do wonders for this precious boy of mine. 

So if you think of it send a little prayer for Liam. I want God to really prepare his heart for the upcoming change and I want him to thrive. And any advice or words of encouragement are greatly appreciated! Thanks friends.
