Big Changes

Things have a way of changing rapidly in our world.

Today, this amazing kid started school. The same school as his brother.

He is in 4th grade. I never thought this would happen but we got a little nudge from the universe. And it turned out to be a good one.

I cried. His dad cheered. His brother was so excited. And he was too.

He dressed himself, put on his own backpack, let me gel his hair, negotiated how many treasures he could bring to school, and made his way to the porch to wait for the bus. (Which doesn’t start quite yet.)

He rode happily with mom and dad and walked in willingly. Cue my tears…he’s so grown up. And still so vulnerable. I just pray and hope that he is loved and treasured.

After we visited the paper store and I’ve never seen a happier kid. Today was a good day. And this mama is thankful for every person who was kind to my son today. I am grateful for good people.

Ps. Go watch my Instagram stories to see Cooper shopping at the paper store. He nailed it! My Instagram is Findingcoopersvoice
