1st Day of SCHOOL!!!!

I was SO thrilled for the kids! Caidgen was so confident and excited about getting back to school with the same great teacher and friends. And Ami - wow, she was just as confident! I swear she already knew it was HER school from being there so much last year. She woke up early and hugged her dad shyly - - "it's my school day today." HOW blessed do I feel that Blue was there not only for Caid's first day, but now for her's also? I thought last year was a little side blessing from him being in school. But here we are again and dad got to go with us to the first day. It means a lot to him and a TON to us. I feel like the Lord really gives me the little gifts that mean the most to me.






Ilove my poser! SO many little kids were crying in her class and she was saying, " Are we starting yet? When are we starting?" Blue and I watched the teacher lead the class in from the playground - all 25 kids sober and quiet. Some crying. A few trembling. And one little red head not even IN the line, but out of it walking right next to some new girl, waving her hands animatedly as she talked to her. Blue and I looked at each other and laughed. Blue said, "should we just make an appointment with the principal now? I know we'll be seeing him this year."

Just because Ami did not cry didn't mean there were no tears. I was a wreck! I was so emotional - just SO happy for Ami that HER day came. As Goonies put it, "It's OUR TIME." She had always wanted to have that special school thing that Caidgen loves so much and there she was, all dressed and ready to go with her little name tag on her table and everything.

Caidgen still threw his arms around me when I picked him up from school, yesterday and today. Thank goodness he's still excited to see me and share his day. I will be sad when that ends. Not expecting it or allowing that to be any time soon. :)

Love the hair! I didn't know your kids wear uniforms to school. They look so cute. Caidgen is turning into such a handsom little boy!

Thats how Brooklyne was her first day, soooo excited, no tears, just smiles! She starts school this year on the 11th. Caidgen and Ameris both look so cute and excited! You even wore your red shirt to match :) Its so sweet Blue was able to be there for the first day! Its nice how those things work out! So I got your message about friday. What do you have going on? I'm not sure about dinner on sat. Shelby is coming with the kids, and staying at his brothers, and we were thinking of going to the temple after the shower.

I'm so glad your kids like school. It's such a huge blessing isn't it? I always just hurt for the little ones that struggle-- and I always pray mine isn't one of them (some days are better than others). I'm glad it went so good for you, Mommy tears and all...
