First day of School, Part I

The sweet...



and the bittersweet.



New things are always a little hard for the G-man. We're praying for him A LOT today.

Sadie's official first day is tomorrow so after the flood subsides, I'll post more then.

Thank you everyone for your great, and might I add nutritious, lunch suggestions. They really were helpful and I'm sure I'll be coming back to them time and time again. Unless tuition happened to pay for a little elf who will flit into my kitchen each morning and prepare yummy lunches for my little turkeys. Yeah, I didn't think so but it a girl can dream can't she?

Poor thing! That almost made me cry! I was the child resistant to change as well...never did go over quite well with me. :0)

Crying for the second time today over a boy and school. So sweet though- that picture literally is worth a million words. He'll love you for it one day.

A father's embrace...

Not casual at all - but so very intentional.

This photo touched my heart.

I got tears in my eyes looking at that picture. You see, we have a Graham too, and he has those exact tennis shoes.

It was a good sale at the ole Famous Footwear.
