Trevor had a folder he took two and from Kindergarten every day this year that carried all his work and correspondence to/from his teacher. We started with a shiny bright folder.
This is what he brought home his last day.
I had a little laugh when I saw this. But as I continued to work through the pile of school paraphernalia, I came across this:
And my heart had a little tug on it. Remember this post? My initial thought was, uh oh. But then as I kept staring at the title of the folder, a flood of memories of this past year came rushing over me. I thought of how God has strengthened Trevor to be bold and independent and truly flourish in school. I remembered one time when I was helping in his classroom, I watched Trevor as a quick, confident, funny little boy interacting with his teacher and peers and I thought, “Wow, this is my son!” I was in awe of how God has really blossomed him and carried him through his first year of school. Sure, Michael and I encourage him at home, but who he was when I was watching him in class that day was all God.
It wasn’t until I looked at this yellow pocket folder until I put that all together. A reminder from God that He alone carries Trevor, He is with Trevor, and He already knows what is ahead for Trevor.
So to first grade we go.
