Milestone: Faith Starts Kindergarten

Faith’s First Day At Kindergarten

All over America children are starting their first day of Kindergarten.

Our Faith is one of them and today is indeed history in the making.

The last month had been about getting Faith fully ready for kindergarten and I am glad she is off to a great start.

There was no crying from either of us, just lots of pictures and hugs.

Faith has been looking forward to this day forever. All she’s talked about is starting school, going on the yellow bus and seeing her BFF Jeri. Sadly Jeri and Faith are not in the same class but they get to see each other on their breaks and bus rides.

I am happy that Faith isn’t a crybaby and she reminds me a lot of myself. At such a young age she is displaying her independence already and this mama isn’t holding her back.

I feel pretty confident about this stage simply because I know at least 2 other moms of kindergartener on our street that I can chat with and ask many questions. It really feels great to have other moms that I can share this experience and excitement with.

On returning home, I did shed a tear or two. It all started to sink in for me. Our journey getting here hasn’t been easy.

Faith was the child the enemy didn’t want us to have. Faith is our miracle breakthrough. She is our answer to prayer and our perfect gift from God. She is our proof of God’s love, mercy and faithfulness.

So today we rejoice and celebrate with many other parents on their own important milestone.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (Jam 1:17)

    Wishing Faith an awesome school year.

  8. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!, this is simply the beginning of a wonderful journey. God, who has started this wonderful journey will perfect it in Christ Name. Enjoy!!!

    • Amen. Tolu, thank you for your prayer, i really do appreciate them. Thank you for your support and encouragement. God will bless you in return and as you rejoice with us today, you will never lack for others to rejoice with you too.

  9. Faith, the breakthrough child’, how I love that word. Sister mi, God is awesome, there is simply no searching of His understanding. What started as a tiny, little embryo is set for education, isn’t God so wonderful. Faith, as you venture into the real world, may the angels of God build an edge around you, you will fulfil destiny. Sister mi, am so so happy for you and uncle.

    • Tolulope, the blogging community is not the same without you! You have been missed girl,i cant wait to read your post.

      Thank you for your prayers. I am still in perpetual awe of God’s goodness.
