The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

~First day of First Grade~

Well it is here already!! My baby is at his first day of first grade. I know you must get tired of hearing me say, "its going by so fast" but it truly is and if you are a mother you know exactly.

This summer we stayed SO busy that I think it was even faster!! Hate so much to see the summer come to an end, we had an AWESOME time!! Couple weeks ago we had one last big hurrah and went on a business trip with Chad to Dothan, Al for a few days and with being that close to the beach who wouldnt make another beach vacation out of it?!?! So 6 days total and it was wonderful!! We went on down to Panama City Beach from Dothan and had a great time!!

When we got back it was time for school supplies shopping and a few more fun days and here we are today!! Back to school ;( Sam is attending Bethlehem Christian Academy again this year and I am SO excited about his new teacher and his school year, just wish it could go a little slower!!

Sam was more than ready to head back, he loves school, and that makes it so much easier and me happy!! I on the other hand did shed a few tears!! His first year to go to school all day, WOW what will I do with myself?!?! Thats another post in itself right there!!

So up and at em bright and early today!! Alarm clock was buzzing for Sam at 6:30 after sleeping till 9:30 or 10 all summer. I awoke and said really??? this day is already here??? Sam is most excited about being what he calls a "luncher" this year!! eating lunch at school with your friends that must be the best.... atleast he thinks so!! I thought having lunch home with me was the best, sure am gonna miss that little turkey =)

Hope you have a wonderful first grade year buddy, i love you, and cant wait to see all that you will learn this year!! you always make me so proud =)

Time sure does fly by :(

Those pictures are so cute, but especially the one of him sitting at his desk. How excited does he look for 1st grade?! I hope being a luncher was everything he thought it would be :)

And by the way, PLEASE tell me you don't look that pretty every morning that you drop him off! The safety patrols at our school would probably fall over dead if I showed up in morning car line with clothes, not PJs on!

Love my 2 BoYs! said...

Thanks Joy!! He had a great first day back and was SO excited to be there!!

and no mam i dont look like that every morning, lol thought i'd get ready for the first day anyways... but you will usually find me taking him to school however it is that I roll out of bed in the mornings =) thanks though!! all i can say is too bad on the days its cloudy and i cant hide my face with my sunglasses....
