First Day of School
Well...we all survived our first day of school. Luke was beyond excited as he bounced out of the bed when I came in his room to get him up to start the day. He was up and dressed in no time and ready to take on the world. He couldn't stop asking me if it was time to go yet. We talked all through breakfast about the new friends he was going to make, his new teacher, Mrs. Wood, and what new exciting things he might learn this year. He talked a mile a minute about the days schedule and of course reminding me that after snack and recess I was going to pick him up (in case I forgot)!
Hayley woke up not quite as chipper as her brother. At first, she was telling me that she didn't want to go to school and she wanted to stay home with me. Those words actually did my heart some good knowing that she was going to miss me at least a little. But after we talked about Mrs. Holcombe's classroom and all the wonderful babies there were in the housekeeping center, she thought better of staying home. She of course wanted to wear a "beautiful outfit" as she says most mornings. Luke's excitement was contagious, and Hayley too began to get excited after breakfast.
Dropping both of them off was a little tough on me, but they were calm and happy to see all the new friends and faces. After a big hug and kiss from both of them and a gentle "I love you so much" whispered in their ears, my babies were off on their way to new adventures.
I am a wife to one of The Few and the Proud, he loves his country and happens to be the most amazing man who loves me unconditionally and is truly my hero; a homeschooling mama to 3 wonderful children that make me smile everyday, and a Christian trying to live my life for the Lord. Though I fall and stumble in my walk with Christ, I live in His undying grace and mercy. He has blessed our family beyond my wildest dreams and I cannot praise His name enough.
After reading many of my friends' blogs, I thought this would be a great way to keep friends and family up on what our gang is doing! Let me know if you stop by and see us.
