Meet the Teacher

We had the opportunity to meet Landon's Kindergarten teacher today! Her name is Ms. Robinson and she has been teaching Kindergarten for four years. It was such a relief to me to put a face with a name. She is young and fun and a great fit for Landon. Landon warmed up to her right away and was very sweet to give her a hug. Melted my heart.

I ended up making a folder for all of Landon's teachers, therapist, etc. It's an "All About Me" folder that explains Landon in full detail. His likes, dislikes, learning ability, successes, needs, wants, etc. It turned out very well and I hope it helps everyone to understand Landon and to help him grow in his education.

I realized this morning as I was getting ready to head out the door to meet the teacher that this was going to be a lot harder than I originally thought. I know it's very cliche to say that they grow up so fast, but it's so true. I think the thing that is the hardest for me is not knowing who Landon will come into contact with every minute of his school day and if he gets made fun of, or if he misses his Mom, Dad, or brother. I just worry. I don't need to worry. It's all going to be just fine. God has shown us over and over why he has chosen this school and this teacher just for Landon. It gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.

While Landon is at school, I will still have Liam home with me. On Mondays and Tuesdays I have the opportunity to watch Liam's little friend, Derrick. We are excited for that! Liam will have a built-in playmate for two days out of the week. I am looking forward to the one on one time with my little guy but will be anxiously awaiting to pick Landon up from school everyday.

  1. Kari, this post brought tears to my eyes. As a momma, it's so hard to see our little ones grow up. I began thinking of the day that I will have to send my own little guy into this great big scary world. I am praying for you, friend. Landon will do amazing, I just know it. He is such a precious little guy!

  2. I agree. He will do great. I love the folders you made for Landon's helper people. Awesome idea.

  3. She looks very sweet! I love the idea of making an All About Me book! What a wonderful resource for his teacher! I wish Landon was in my class! Next year ya'll need to move down here so he can be in my first grade! :)

  4. Great idea!! I'm sure the teachers will appreciate that and that will be helpful. I said a prayer for Landon today for a good experience in kindergarten!!
