Another School Year Begins....

Wow-- how is it time for school already??  Definitely seemed to be the fastest summer ever, for us!!!  Oh, what a great summer break it was!!!!

Last Wednesday,  Karson started his first day of kindergarten!!  Khara, Kelsey, and Kaden had their first day on Thursday.
Karson meeting his teacher at Open House.  Kelsey and Kaden also had her for Kindergarten.

Kaden with his teacher at Open House-- she was also Kelsey's 3rd grade teacher!

No Open House/ meeting your 'one' teacher for Khara and Kelsey-- just getting the whole "locker thing" down!  :-)  They each  have seven different teachers and so far LOVE middle school!!!

Karson on his first day of Kindergarten---  (someone must have been walking up that he wanted to look at, I'm just glad for the smile) ;-)

First morning to the start of an incredible journey.....

18 anxious kindergarten's on that first morning.....

And one last parting shot.... :-)

Wow-- for 13 years I've had the incredible privilege of being a full time stay-at-home mom.  To see all four of my children head off to school to be gone ALL DAY was a very different feeling.  I'm so thankful for all the books we read, picnics we took, games we played...  So blessed to have enjoyed all of these special moments with each of my children, and one I don't take for granted!!!!   Praying for a great school year-- and now I'm off to get this house cleaned, laundry done, and supper underway so that when they come walking in the door this afternoon  I  can still be a full-time MOM!!!! :-)

The years pass so swiftly! Your kiddos are precious and growing so fast. Ours are 9, 5 and 1 now. Have a wonderful school year!

I can't believe how tall Kaden is!! They are all so cute. What in the world are you going to do with yourself now? :) I feel really strange only having two home this year. I'm so happy you've gotten to stay home with them - its the hardest job, but the best one, for sure. :)

By the way, we passed through your town the other day and thought of you. We were picking up Elise. :)

What sweet pictures. Love the little signs they are holding telling the grades they are in. =)

We're doing good. Counting the MINUTES 'till Daddy gets home to us. He's been gone since Oct. 8th!! He's in Colombia on a ministry trip and gets back this week, Lord willing. =)

Funny little story for you. After the G.B.S. Homecoming service Friday night there were LOTS of people outside on the main campus by the fountain. All of the sudden I saw this little boy and he was SOBBING and looking for His mother!! I talked to him and asked him his last name and I think he said something like, " Clayton!" I said, "I'd help you find your Mommy, if I knew WHO your Mommy was!" So, I just PRAYED that Jesus would please help him find his mother SOON! I felt so sorry for him. =(
A couple minutes later Brenda came out of the crowd and He ran to her crying, "Mommy!" =) I was SO GLAD He'd found his mother! =)


Hoping all is well y'all's way.
