I have signed my son up for preschool starting next school year.
I know he'll do great and he'll love school, I'm just not sure I'm ready yet to send my sweet boy out THERE.
But I'm working on it.
Out of the blue this morning, my son told me that he does not want to go to school.
Because "I am too excited for Home."
What are you excited about?
"Transformers, playing all day at the park, our car that takes us places, and the FOOD!"
Who knew that my food was exciting enough to make my son want to stay home?
How extremely flattering.
I love my kids, but I guess I might need to stop making rainbow cupcakes and such!
These cupcakes were super fun to make and eat.
They went so fast that I was unable to get a good shot of the finished product, so I had to borrow a photo from the site where I got the recipe. They'd be a great way to round out a green St. Pattie's Day meal!
As I think about my apprehensions about sending my son to school for the first time, it makes me wonder: Were we also reluctant to leave the sweet joys and familiarity of our Heavenly Home?
The good news is that after we've learned what we need to in this life, we can return home again, and we can return better than we were before, through the merits of his Son, Jesus Christ.
