Fly Little Butterfly Fly

Okay my friend over at It's Time for the Burkalater wrote a bog entry about her daughter's first day of kindergarten and the emerging of a butterfly they were taking care of on the same day. And well, it brought tears to my eyes as I thought of my own little Butterfly that started Kindergarten this year.

Here is the link: http://burkulater.blogspot.com/2009/09/kindergarten.html

As I read what she wrote, I thought about how my butterfly is soaring too. She not only had taken to Kindergarten like a duck to water......she is emerging into a beautiful little lady.

She has joined the Junior Forerunners at the River of Life Assembly of God. This is a drama dance praise and worship team at the church. They do drama like dance to praise and worship music. We had tried Junior Bible Quiz with her but it was not a fit for her. However, she has taken to this class and team like it was made for her. I am watching my baby soar and fly on fledgling wings as she learns a new way to worship her Lord. She comes back bubbly and excited and talking about Jesus and her class. Her leaders say she is doing well and she LOVES it and it shows. My baby is growing up. She leaves with the group from the church without Mommy and Daddy and we pick her up later. She does it "all by herself". My butterfly is flying and she is beautiful!
