***All 3 kiddos have hit the teacher jackpot and had a great start to their 2nd, 4th, and pre-K school year! We are so grateful for the Lord's provision in the details of our life, both big and small!
Meet the Teacher!
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!
In case you can't read the sign... Abigail still wants to be a teacher at The Rise School with Grace as her assistant teacher.
This year, Andrew also wants to teach at the Rise School, alongside of Abby, and with Grace as their assistant.
Grace wants to be a teacher too!
First day of school!
***A couple of highlights from the first week of school:
Grace (and the rest of us) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Grace's new school! Praise the Lord! I especially love that they love that "she's very talkative!" I don't think her Elementary School teachers will always appreciate that quality of hers (LOL)!
This little girl does not enjoy reading (so a chapter book a week in 4th grade is a tall order for her), but she loves a challenge and accomplishing goals, so it's been such a blessing to see her choose to power through her book without the slightest fuss, even when it's inconvenient.
***Saturday was Grace's 4th birthday!!! This kid has rocked our world in the best of ways! She (in God's strength and provision) has driven us to take permanent residence on our knees, as we have fought (and will always be fighting) for her life, learned how to dance in the rain instead of wait for life's storms to pass, and continue to marvel at how a little person can be one of the mightiest prayer warriors I know. The lessons God teaches me through this little life are such an incredible gift. Who am I that I get to be her momma?
We celebrated this little girl in the simplest, but most special way, doing all of her favorite things! Donuts for breakfast, playing together as a family, taking "baby" to play at the park...
Swinging with "baby"...
I guess Andrew was overseeing the swinging process with a birds eye view...
Ran laps with Sissy to get nice and conditioned for the soccer season (Grace starts soccer in a couple weeks ;-)
Cheering Bubba and Sissy on as they jumped off swings...
Swimming with friends...
Eating cake(I must have missed that picture because I was busy stuffing my face)!
Check out this Anna dress and tights from Bubba and Sissy!
And... LOOK! A real (pretend) make up kit from Mommy Daddy because my favorite thing to do in the morning is make up with Mommy!
Check out the coolest balloon ever that Grace's second favorite princess (after Elsa and Anna), Mrs. Jill brought over for her!
Much love, (((hugs))), and blessings to you!!!
