Max was really excited to start school...right up until the day before school started. He said to me, "I thought I was supposed to have long vacation?"
Once he realized that he was going to be in school the next day and be there all day long, he got extremely nervous. "I don't think I can do this." "What if I get lost at school?" "What if I don't know anybody?" After reassuring him that everything would be fine, he calmed down a little.
That night we had my wonderful Dad come over to help alleviate some of Max's fears. He gave Max a 'school year' blessing, and later that night Max was laying in bed when the panic set in, again. "Mom, I can't feel it working yet." He knew that asking our Heavenly Father for help would make him feel better and laying there he realized he was still extremely nervous. Max and I then discussed what we had asked Heavenly Father for in the blessing and that He would help Max...then Max said, "Yep, I can do this!"
He got up the next morning and was ready to go! He was super excited and he was even ready early! For those of you that know Max you understand that being early was a huge feat in itself! ;)

Thank goodness for great friends! I know Max's extremely long day was made easier because he had great friends by his side.
|Kaysie was so happy to see Max, she ran to him and gave him the biggest hug!|
