~Our first day of School~

We had a great first day of school today! My Sarah LOVES balloons, so Phillip helped me blow up a lot of balloons last night and we put them all over the dinning room. The Lord helped Elijah and I to have a good night, and I was able to get up early and make banana sour cream pancakes, fried ham, and a fresh blackberry juice/shake for their breakfast this morning. Each of the kids had a candy treat on the breakfast plate this morning.
(The youngest member of our classroom (Elijah)...came to school in his nightgown today. =)
Then after family devotions, we ran to the nearby park to get some fun school pictures.
Last night I was able to sneak and make some choc. cupcakes and I kept them hidden for an extra treat after our lunch. We thank the Lord for a good first day of school!
(By the way...we noticed today that Elijah (4 months) is getting his 2 front bottom teeth!)
Enjoy the peek into our "schoolroom". =)

Heavens to Betsy! You have so many cute things to look at in this Smilebox that I don't know what to comment on first! Elijah's hat is hysterical! Sarah's outfit is adorable. Your breakfast party is so festive and has such a beautiful menu. And, What a Mama, who can teach her children so attractively at home! I got nostalgic thinking of you getting old, Heather. I cannot ever imagine your kids without their mother. Phillip picked a winner when he picked you to be his wife, that's for sure! Love, Mom D.

I love your Smilebox and it looks like you all had a great first day of school - hope your year goes well! Our year is up and running, but with deputation who knows what we'll actually accomplish this fall. The boys are doing great so far and we'll be able to catch up once we get back home to Mexico!
