then she opened her book & started to show us pictures she had asked him to draw since the beginning of the school year -
first week of school - just a picture of himself with spiky hair (so cute that he didn't leave that detail out!)
second picture - picture of him & a shape
third picture - picture of him & two of his "girl" friends (i'm already telling him NO GIRLFRIEDS until college - they are trouble - haha)
fourth picture - another picture of him & his spiky hair (this time its higher... he needs a hair cut)
fifth picture & then the mood changed - a picture of our house & his slide with her writing on the bottom of the paper saying, "wants to go home to play & slide" she went on to say that she had seen a change in his behavior. he was not acting like himself, sad & telling his teachers he wanted to go home, not wanting to play on the playground, just walking around by himself.
my heart sank & tears begin to roll down my check. thank goodness she had a box of kleenex sitting on the table! i couldn't stop from crying. my heart felt VERY sad, wanting to figure out what was going on for him to feel this way. i had a lot of questions - what made him not want to be there anymore? is someone being mean to him? is he or had he gotten in trouble? he has enjoyed going to school for two months. now why the change?
i dried my tears but we didn't solve anything to why he doesn't want to go to school anymore. we both are going to do some investigating & try to find what's going on.
i'm asking for prayer. i hate knowing (and sending) kaden to school knowing for some reason he doesn't want to go. if you have any ideas/thoughts to help me, help him like school again i would appreciate it.
