Dear Keagan, February 17, 2010

Dear Keagan,

I'm still trying to get used to the idea of you being four. Wow. I love your bubbly, persistent personality, and I love that you're enjoying cuddle time with me more and more! You've got quite a little imagination, too--which is just a blast! (You see a pond, and suddenly we're enacting finding a boat and rowing across the river!)

Today I finally got your birth certificate. I am a pretty big procrastinator, so don't be surprised that it took me four years!

I'm a little torn between excitement and sadness about why I had to finally get your birth certificate: you're enrolling very soon in Pre-K--in less than a month. I'm really nervous about sending you, and I cry about it sometimes. I think of things like: who will help you open your sandwich bag at lunch and poke the straw in your Caprisun? All the while, though, I am excited for you--mostly because I know how much you're going to love it.

I guess I'm just not ready to be away from you all day every day. I know--I have to adjust. And I will. But for now, I'm ready for spring to get here so I can soak up outside moments with you before you enter such a big, new chapter. I love you!

Love, Mom

Peace of Christ to you,
