First day of Bible Class

Yesterday, Gavin for the first time in his life, went to bible class! It was such a milestone for him. I was so nervous about it, I don't know if all moms feel that way the first time they take their child to a class room setting... or if it was just me? He went right in and told us "bye"... didn't even look back! He warmed right up to the class room, teacher and class mates. After class, he greeted us at his classroom door, in line with the rest of the kids, with his "God made..." project. He told us God made "animals, trees and Coweb". Coweb (Caleb) is his new buddy he made in class! I think the rest of the church saw ours and Gavin's excitement. One of the elders made a point to bring it up before the prayer during church on Sunday. He said he was so happy to see Gavin "walk down the halls like a big kid, going straight to his class, for the first time in his life, such a milestone". It definitely brought me to tears. Each time Gavin participates in something for the first time, it brings me back to the moment of wondering/not knowing if he would ever get to have these experiences. Another first, another day of thank fullness!

I took this picture with my phone, so it's kind of blurry!

How exciting!!! I'm so happy that Gavin will be able to start experiencing a lot of "firsts" now that his surgery is behind him.

I'm glad his first day of Bible class went well. It sounds like he really enjoyed it!!
