Happy First Day of School

What a great day! Isabella was thrilled with her first day of 1st grade! She prepared the night before by reading one of her very favorite books, Chrysanthemum. Wouldn't you know that the book of the day for the first day of school was none other than Chrysanthemum. She even got to color a picture of her. She made new friends but her favorite was Jeremy, a boy she met at VBS this summer. Some might laugh at me seeing God in every little thing but my prayer has been that Bella would meet a friend that was honest and kind. A kid from VBS is a good start :)

Elissa struggled with it a little today. She asked where the girls were, Bella especially. She said she wanted to go to school too. She starts K4 next Monday so she will be very happy soon!

Awww! that is too sweet! It just amazes me at how big the girls seem to get almost daily! They are so beautiful and so sweet and smart and precious. I love them so much!!
