Keep calm - deep breath!

So the school called - they want Mr L to come in for a day to be evaluated at the school, to see how he functions in a class.  My heart beat so fast, my hands are shaking, I feel like crying - ok, who do I kid, I cried.

On the minus side - he does not handle new places well, he does not like change. Evaluating him in these
circumstances is not ideal.
On the plus side - they did not say outright no
On the minus side - I have to drop him there and leave him there. They will phone me if he a huge problem arise and I need to pick him up.
On the plus side - Mr C can go with him and stay the day too. They will at the same time decide at which teacher he will be placed.
On the minus side - the teacher he knows (A's teacher of last year) has a very busy and disruptive class this year and she will not be able to do the evaluation
On the plus side - the teacher that he will be evaluated by is the headmistress and she is in our church and he knows her by sight. Her class is calm and relaxed.

So we will try to prepare him best we can - we will talk about going, his teacher and OT will too, I will take them there a few mornings to say hallo. In the end, it boils down to:
 Ps 46:10
Trust that God will keep His hand over all this and that the right decision will be made for our child. :Live in HOPE - my word for the year.
Prayers please!


  1. I am praying for that peace of God will be on you and on little L. I know that He will be there with L while he is being evaluated and I know that He works all things to the good of those who love Him.

  2. I hear you and I have a pretty good idea of why this makes you nervous. I will pray.xx

  3. my one lovely friend said to me the other day "God knows which pre-school your two are meant to go to" and I say the same to you, my other lovely friend, "God has it all sorted, whatever sorted may be"

  4. We'll keep you in our thoughts and prayers...

    I know it's hard but try to relax or he'll pick up on your tension. He's made some excellent jumps throughout this year, who knows - maybe he'll fly through this one as well?

    1. Thanks for the reminder - yes, who knows?

  5. You are right. Place your son in God's hands and hope for the best. It will be okay.

  6. Good luck, hope it all goes better than expected X

  7. Good luck, holding thumbs for the best!

  8. Hope everything goes well. Trust God that all things will work together for your good and in your favour.

    Sending you lots of hugs

  9. It is so hard to make all these decisions regarding their schooling. Good luck and let us know how it goes!


So what's on your mind?
