Day 2

Day two of preschool for Alyssa and day 1 for Bella Grace. They were both so excited and Alyssa loved that her sister was at "her" school this year. They are just too sweet. Here are some pictures as we were heading out the door!

Off to school we go!!

Alyssa started her final year of preschool today! Such an exciting time for her and a overwhelming feeling for me! I can't even begin to describe how fast these last 4 years have gone. I know all those with kids know exactly what I am talking about.
I have a year to prepare her mind and heart for kindergarden. I want her to enter her first year of "real" school knowing that she is loved. By us and even more by her Heavenly Father! I want her to be a leader at even a young age. I want to continually fill her mind with the ways of the Lord so that she will tell others about Him and live for Him all the days of her life.

She did not turn back today as she entered her class. She walked in...and started going at it. I pray that is how she will live her life in the Lord. That she will always press on toward the final goal. She will never look back, never turn back, and never get stuck in her route.

Alyssa we love you and are so proud of you. What a blessing you have been to us and what a sweet young lady you are. You have a love for Jesus and we pray you will always love and seek Him in all you do!

Love these sweeties!!!

I can't believe summer is coming to an end and school is starting back for us. I LOVE a routine. I love knowing what the week ahead holds for me. I like the be prepared and prayed up for the week and for all that will happen and will be thrown my way! We all know things just come up and I am so thankful that the Lord has it all under control. The things we do not see coming, he already knows. What an awesome thing!

It has been an awesome summer with my girls. It has been a whirlwind! So busy yet so relaxing at the same time. We have good days, bad days, tough days, I have lost it a few times, I have loved them more than I thought I could, I have enjoyed just being with them and creating memories that will last forever in my mind and hopefully forever in theirs. They are a blessing. Being a mom is a wonderful journey that the Lord entrusts us to walk through. I look at my girls and can't believe the Lord Jesus allowed me to be their mom. That's something I will never get over.

Tonight we had our open house at the girls' school. Here are a few pictures of my cuties before we left tonight!

I sure do have a couple of little hams:)
