'Twas the Night Before...

THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!! HOOOORAY! I don't know who is more excited, me or the children. Quick story, this whole school thing just keeps getting better and better. Today at church, I was talking to a mother of FIVE (God bless her soul) and her three older children attend the same school Lexi is going to. Turns out, her adorable, sweet, bubbly, cute as a button 5 yr old IS IN LEXI'S CLASS!!!!!! I am so excited! Not only did I pray for just the right teacher, I also prayed specifically for God to place a friend in her class that comes from a good family. And I love this family. They are precious. (Mimi and Dada G, you would like them too. They are both Auburn grads!) And then after church, we just so happened to run into them at lunch, so Lexi sat with their daughter and they had fun times and got to know each other a little better. So she already has a sweet friend in her class which I'm sure will help ease the jitters a bit. Tonight the backpack fairy is paying us a visit. She's bringing some school supplies, a cool water bottle, Go Fish Alphabet cards, and some cool gel pens to use at home. Oh and some flip flops. Not that she can wear them to school, but they were like $.50 at Walgreens. What backpack fairy could resist that?

First day of school pictures coming soon! Pray for us!!!

Just hopped over from Mel's blog. We are in FL too, so school started for us today. It's always so nerve wracking (at least for me), but I think we are in the place we need to be.
Enjoy the school year.
