First Day of School

A & R, 11th & 8th, are back to school today. They were both dressed in new outfits and excited about their new year. EK had a very hard time letting them go. She sobbed and sobbed but was able to settle down when I reminded her they would be home right after lunch...ish. :) I am praying God's richest blessings on each of them as they begin interact with teachers and friends. I sent them off with a prayer and scripture and know God is working His Love in them and through them. I give them totally to Him... "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus" Heb. 12:2.

1st Day



  1. I'm glad they got off to a good start. They both look so pretty! I bet EK will be so excited to see them this afternoon.


  2. Shay: I sent a message to you via Lucy, but she just referred me to your blog -- It was great to meet you at the Harknesses, but I wanted to apologize if i sounded pushy about SN adoption in China. I KNOW that God puts desires in your heart for a reason and whether it's to wait for a healthy baby or not is up to you and your hubby. Hope you didn't think I was too pushy about that. I will keep your beautiful family in my prayers as you wait! Ellen
