Meet and Greet: Back to School




Last night we went to my daughters new school to meet her teacher and drop her supplies off.  This mommy is having some emotional thoughts as I type this.  I am so thrilled and excited for her but kids grow up so quickly and I am trying to hold on to her and keep her little as long as I can. 

My daughter seemed a bit scared when we approached the school.  After we got out of the car she had a death grip on my hand.  It was not what I expected because she has been asking to start school and has been so excited thinking about it.  

Tonight she asked God to help her not be shy or nervous for her first day tomorrow... it melted my heart but I know God will be right there with her guiding and directing her steps.   

Tomorrow morning is the first day and sadly I have to be at work before her bus even comes.  :(  The adjustment of working full time is going slowly but it truly is a blessing for me to have this job.  I know God has placed me where he wants me!  My son has been having a hard time each morning as I leave but I know he will adjust.  I am also very blessed to NOT have to put him in full time care.  My husbands job allows him to take care of our son and use drop in care as needed.  Thankfully my son takes a good nap so my husband can get a lot of his studying and other work then and then we only have drop in care as needed.  

I think my daughter will have a great year!  We had a great children's church service last Sunday and we really made some declarations and had a great prayer time covering the whole 2013-2014 school year.  

Have a blessed 2013-2014 school year!  

Look for another post later this week showcasing all the first day of school pictures and summary.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
