Today I sent off my oldest, 4-year-old, to headstart for the first time. I don't mind that she's away from me or anything like that, but I feel anxious because I spent the last 4 years trying to raise her with Biblical morals and the right discipline and reinforcing life lessons with Bible verses and now shes away from me all of sudden experiencing the outside worlds influences. I also worry because her teacher does not even require the children to call her Ms., just her name is fine, which is a big no-no for me. I tried for the last two weeks to make sure that my daughter tries to remember to say Ms. to the teacher and other staff even though the other children may not. I tell her that it shows respect. I know that God is with her now and is watching over her. She is a lovely girl and she has so much love in her heart. I pray that He helps her remember everything I taught her. And I realize that this is just the beginning, isn't it?
