Lizzie is a Kindergartener!

Lizzie begins kindergarten at Green Trails Elementary tomorrow.  I am feeling all sorts of emotional about this. I'm trying to keep it together, but I feel like I just want her to stay home.  But that's all about me.  I know she's ready.  She is so smart and so strong and so kind. She is going to be a great kindergartener.

Tonight Dave gave her a blessing. She demanded her blessing "NOW!" As soon as Dave began to speak, a hush fell and the spirit flooded our home. The words he shared weren't anything like other blessings I've heard hi give. Not even close. Obviously very personal and individual to Lizzie.  Here is some of what he said:
  • be ready to be involved in all sorts of activities at school
  • know that Heavenly Father knows how you feel; He hears you when you pray and know when you think about him
  • home is a safe place; you can always come home and talk to mom and dad and feel love and feel safe
  • you are special
  • be a good friend to others, especially look for those who need a friend and someone to be kind to them
