Aden and I went to Kindergarten Orientation yesterday. We had fun, but we were both a little nervous. I was sitting there looking at all of his fellow school mates, and I got thinking--What if he doesn't make friends? What if he gets picked on? What if he doesn't like his teacher? What if he needs me, and I am not there? All these thoughts were going through my head. My baby is growing up, and I am not always going to be there to protect him! It's scary! Just at that moment, Aden looked up at me and said "I'm nervous, Mama." I explained to him that it was okay to be nervous, and that most of the other kids were probably nervous too. But he jumped right into the activities, and I think the nervousness went away...at least for him...

Jayne has always been a little "mother". She is so good with her two little brothers, but today she has a different little one to take care of. She and her friend Ashlyn found a BABY BIRD at school!! Of course they had to bring it home, since it's nest and mother were nowhere to be found. This is the tiniest little thing I've ever seen! They have been finding worms for it, and it actually eats them! We aren't quite sure if it will make it through the night...cross you fingers for little "Floob"! (Did I mention that I have a giant fear of birds?!? This one doesn't count though.)
