This little llama turns 5 on September 23rd.
Well you see… I am thinking about school.
And when this little llama should start school.
You see… according to the the school district where she will be attending, the “rule” is that the child must be 5 by October 1st in order to start Kindergarten. This puts Charlotte starting Kindergarten before she even turns 5 in the fall of 2010.
Did your eyes juts pop open as big as mine?
I know… Dilemma, huh?
Now, I think she is a smart little cookie. Mature, yes (though we do still have the occasional temper tantrum). But ready for Kindergarten in August? I just am not sure I can do it.
So, do we send her Fall 2010, or wait a year and send her Fall 2011 when she is about to turn 6??
I am waiting (hoping, praying) for the Angel Gabriel to come down into my living room and give me a word from the Lord…but I have a feeling God doesn’t use Gabriel anymore…and if he did it would be for much more important things.
I am in a conundrum, and feel the weight of responsibility in making a good decision. This could change her life. What if her future husband is out there and my deciding to send her early or send her late changes the course of her life forever!?!
Do I think I have that much power?
Although I want to be a good steward of these decisions,
do I really think that I can move the chess pieces
to produce a smart, beautiful, successful girl?
God knows her future.
The God who knit her together in my womb, has a plan for her and it is for her Good… to prosper her and to give her a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11)
I am going to have to make a decision… and trust God to work it out for her Good. But while we are praying about this decision, and seeking God’s will about what course we should take…
I ask you, my bloggy buddies.
Please share in the comments what you would do
if it were your child.
Would you send her at barely 5
Wait a year and send her when she is about to turn 6?
