Back to School ... Again

Again, it feels like I was just writing about the first day of school for the boys.  Today was Jack's first day of ... gulp ... 3rd grade and Samuel's first day of full-day (Senior) Kindergarten, sniff sniff.  Of course, the boys were excited while their Mama tried with everything she had in her not to break down, at least not before they got on the bus and could no longer see her. 

We're praying that it is another year of growth for the boys, not just academically and socially but also that, as Nikki has so eloquently prayed for her own boys, a year where their hearts are captured by our God.  

And with that, it is with anticipation, excitement and much love that we look forward to seeing the boys grow this year.

And, this little girl?  She's wondering where her big brothers are going ... she will certainly miss them and their silliness while they are at school.

I was thinking of you this morning as I thought of all of the children going back to school and how much I'd dread that.

Wow - you are quick with the pictures today! I love to see the boys smiling faces. Were they not nervous at all? Samuel -- all day now, oh my!

What will little Miss do all day? I guess Maizey will have to entertain her. :) That is so sweet her watching at the door for her big brothers.

Have a wonderful week!
