good-bye summer

first day of school.


how can summer have escaped so quickly?
it ~always~ does...i don't know why i question? :)

 kaden- going into 3rd grade. i was nervous for this boy. and i still might be. :)
a transition year into a new building. eeeekkk.
(the same building where i went K-4.
oh how fun and weird it is to go into that building).
i am feeling like kaden will be challenged a great deal this year...
he came down with an old baseball shirt on.
i made him go put some *new* clothes on.
he could care.less. :)

 kaycee-going into 2nd grade. and cares a great deal how she looks.
we love to match. nails and all. :)
and i may not do her hair anymore, unless we are going to fight and have tears. :(
kaycee has the same terrific teacher as kaden had last year.
she will flourish, although none of her "friends" are in her class this year.

oh campbell girl-is going into KINDERGARTEN.
she had a great first day. she loves to get herself dressed,
and my girl has style...she does not have to long as she "feels" good...we are good to go. :)
she comes home at lunch time. much to her dismay...
she would LOVE to stay all day.
we are blessed with a great teacher this year...

calli- is 3. she is a roamer. she is a care taker.
she is a sweet heart. most days. :)
she will start her speech class thursday one half hour a week.
she LOVES it. :) and is showing great improvement.

karolina is one. she is precious. a sleeper.
crawling faster and faster and taking a few steps if she wants too. :)
she has her own language and loves to chatter away.
she loves books. and her nuk and blankee.
she is loved by many. :)

i made them all get out of the car for this picture. :)

i am trusting the Lord for this year.
i am believing in faith, he chose my children's teachers...
and believing that they will thrive in the classrooms where they were placed.
and although i don't feel totally at peace with the decision to pull campbell out
of school at mid-day, i am trusting it is the right thing to do,
and believing my "heart" is right.

did i mention i cried after i dropped them off.
yep. again.
the Lord kept reminding me of this verse.all day long.

For God did not give us a spirit of fear and timidity, but a spirit of power,
of love, and of self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7.

it's getting harder and harder to release them into the world.
not easier.
and i am so glad i am done with "first days"...of school anyway. :)

Your kids are so beautiful Mis! I'm glad to know I'm not the only mom who cried on the first day!! :) Letting go of Allen's hand as he walked into his elementary school was a much more painful experience than labor&delivery! :) I'm praying lots too. Allen & I have been memorizing this verse; "...for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." So comforting. Have a great weekend!
