The day I dreaded has come! Back to School!

Well I have one off to middle school and the other waiting to be taken to the elementary school! Where in the world did this summer go?! It is very hard getting back into the swing of things. Both Jeremiah and Bekah were troopers this morning though! They did better then their mom who is having a battle with allergies right now and the allergies are ahead! Finding it hard to breathe! YEAH for me!!!!!

Since Jeremiah was in DK (Developmental Kindergarten) I have made a sign for the 1st day of school stating what grade each child is in and different things about them. Here is this years! I am holding back tears as I type because I can't believe how old they are!

Kam and I are going to do something to make ourselves feel better! Taking the day to relax!

This morning in my devotions God pointed up these verses to me! It is my verse for the day, and basically for my life!

Psalms 130: 5 & 6

I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,

and in his word I put my hope.

My soul waits for the Lord

more than watchmen wait for the morning,

more than watchmen wait for the morning.

I always had a hard time with the first day of school too. I can't believe your kids are getting so old - I think Bekah was born only a couple of years ago!

I hope you have a great day enjoying yourself and that your allergies get better!

Oh Kim! You're going to be an absolute wreck when they move out of the house one day aren't you?!!! I love my kids more than I could ever say in words but I do enjoy these days when they're gone for just a few hours! :) Have a great day with Kam!

Great pictures, great tradition!
Thanks too, for sharing Psalms 130:5-6. That is exactly where I'm at...not where I'm studying, but where I'm living.

Oh Kim, love your post today. I take pictures of my kids every year also. I wished I had made signs, that is such a good idea for future reference!! Hope you have a wonderful week!

Cute! I like how you did the posters with the year of school. It is hard to see the kids grow up and sometimes it is nice also.

I love the imagery of "watchmen waiting in the morning." Imagining a brilliant sunrise...

Congrats on the first day of school. Love those signs!!! :~D
