Prayers for Back to School

School has already started for much of the country.  It starts here next Monday.  My baby is headed off to Kindergarten and her first days in public school.  I am soooo nervous.  I looked up some prayers for our children as they begin the new school year and I wanted to pass this on to you.

I found these prayers at relevantchildrensministry.com
