...and with NO TEARS!!

Today...we started a new life.

Wake up. Get ready. Leave the house.

All for school.

We have all been so excited about this day. Yes, it's bittersweet in some ways, but she is going to LOVE school...that makes it easier on this momma.

I woke up with a nervous tummy this morning...so I began to pray for Ella, her teacher and the other children.

I found a peace during my prayer.

GOD did this. All of this. It came from Him. He has blessed us so much to be where we are now.

Why should I be nervous or upset about something HE put together for us???

There wasn't one tear at school. We took a few pictures, exchanged hugs...and then one excited little girl realized that her new friends were already coloring...she was sold! She proudly took her seat and whipped out her new crayons.

I think she's going to have a beautiful day!!

Oh man! I know that kids tend to dislike the uniforms; how cute does she look in her little skirt?! :) AW! And what cute shoes!!

I'm proud of you for no tears- I have a feeling I am going to sob next week- and Adam is only going to pre-school!

There are no tears here either. Both girls were hopping to go this morning...hours before school started. First time for a houseful of quiet for an entire day. And I think I shall love it, most of the time. The dog is super excited and watching for them to come home. Any minute now.
