Middle School??????

We are only a few short months away from that dreaded word "MIDDLE SCHOOL". For months now that word has been off limits at our house. The reality is, that it is coming and coming fast. Now the hard part begins, where does God want Macie. We are looking at our options and feeling so inadequate to make this HUGE decision. It seems like we were just walking this small little girl through the doors of a big school, and now the thought of a bigger school scares me. Macie seems fine with it all, even a little excited. I keep thinking she must be crazy to be looking forward to this huge change in her world, but she is more secure in herself than I was at that age. That step into Middle school opens their hearts and minds to thing we have tried so hard to sheild her from. We know God has a plan for our little girl, and now I just need a little peace to go with that plan-whatever it may be.

I know exactly how you are feeling...I know I don't have a Middle School daughter yet but I do have one that is going into Kinder and I am so worried. :) I will pray for you as you decide on what is best for your daughter and your family!

Prayer...and visit the schools. We prayed about the decision and so did Garret. When we went to Salem Academy we all felt the peace that only God can give. We each knew in that unspoken moment that where he belonged. And even though the tuition has been a struggle, we do feel he was meant to be there this year without a doubt. We will keep you all in our prayers.
