FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!
I love love love you!! Thank you for being such a big kid today and not being angry that mommy was not around to help you get on the bus. I am so proud of you just like you told me you were proud of me for getting a job! I am so thankful that your first day went well and you made some new friends. When I came home you had so many fun stories to tell me about school and it reminded me to just Praise Daddy God for you! I was so thankful daddy drove you and Titus up to see me at my job so we could go out and eat ice cream! :) I love watching you grow up! You are going to learn a lot this year and make some great friends!
Hugs n Kisses, Mom
It was a bigger challenge for me to walk out the door this morning to go to work and not be home to help and watch my baby get on the bus for Kindergarten. I got to work and was glued to my phone waiting for my husband to send me picture updates. Last night we actually took some of the fun pictures! :)
The morning started a little rough for Daddy as Selah's tummy got the nervous ache and ended in some puke! :( Thankfully it was only nerves and Daddy was still able to get her to the bus and to school. It was not fun for me to get a text from my husband telling me she threw up. I was so thankful that my morning meeting was pushed back so I could be checking and using my phone. I was able to call and talk and pray with her before the bus came. When she got home she told me, "my tummy really started feeling better after I met some friends and after you prayed for me cause God is real and He heals!" My daughter is a breath of fresh air some days!
My day was a longer one too since I am in a different school district then her. My school had our Meet and Greet this evening so I was gone from 7-7! I am excited, nervous, scared, and feeling sleepless tonight since tomorrow is the first student day! I know my classroom will have some challenges but I am really declaring some great things for each of my students... I believe some big things are in store! :)

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
