Well, Sara and I dropped Aaron off for his first day of "school" this morning. We did surprisingly well, especially Sara. She was so strong and positive, and I could really see her faith shining through. We had a good, albeit busy, morning. We talked last night about what needed to get done this morning and what time we hoped to be loaded in the car and on our way. We both shot out of bed and got right to it (probably nervous energy). Aaron slept really well last night, which helped. He was sweet this morning for his feeding, bath and awake time. He got sleepy before we left, so I handled him while Sara got herself ready. We finished everything and got out the door when we had wanted to.
I'm sure Sara will want to fill in the details of dropping him off and getting him settled. The short story is that he seemed to be fine with where he was at. The ladies in the nursery seemed very nice and attentive, and he seemed comfortable with them rocking him. He was almost back asleep when we left.
As we've said all along, we will try this situation and see how it works. God has blessed us with options, and if this is not what we are supposed to do, He will show us. In the meantime, He is giving Sara strength, grace and courage, and I am so proud of her!
