September 4th, 2012 will be a day to remember! It was the first day my baby girl got on the school bus to start 4-K! I was unsure if I was going to cry or be happy but now that she is sitting in school I am sitting here with mixed emotions. I sure am a blessed mommy who has had the opportunity to spend my days with her and my son. :) I am happy she is only gone in the afternoons and I have one more year before she is gone the full school day. I had been on the fence for a very long time about public, christian, homeschooling choices for education but we determined that at this point we would try public.
Hope you enjoy the pictures! I was very blessed to have one of my past favorite youth group students come and take pictures to capture this exciting day! :)
We labeled everything with our fun Lollipop Labels!
I think this will be our thing each year: When I grow up I want to be....
The cute thing is actually hearing my daughter say gymnastics. Its more nastics then anything else.
You know we love sidewalk chalk so we had to get a photo with the sidewalk chalk sign! :)
Brother was still confused about what all the excitement was all about.
Looking for the bus!
THE BUS IS COMING!
Huge seat-Little girl!
Now I need to jump in the kitchen and whip up a tasty treat and a Taco dinner-her choice! :) Hope all of your kids first day of school was awesome.
Before I end this post I just want to make a declaration...
I declare that this school year God is going to be in the the halls and school! I declare my daughter will be the light in her school and her faith will shine! I also pray for safety for all the students nationwide! I pray for all the teachers and staff! Join me in praying for a great school year! AMEN!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
