We have had fun this week getting ready for school to start.  We visited the kids’ classrooms on Tuesday night. We met their teachers, found their seats and signed lots of papers. I signed up for some things- but truly have no idea what I have signed up for…


We found out that olivia has a top locker this year. She has been so eager to know which one was hers and to start decorating it. I put off the request to get anything for her locker because my sister had mentioned getting her fun decorations.  While we were in birmingham last week, olivia found out what they had gotten for her. A-mazing!!

Before    after  

Yes that is a rug and a chandelier. It makes me want to go see it every day. She was giddy and could not wait to go to school tomorrow. So sweet of my sister to think of ways to encourage olivia to love her new school.

Cord’s teacher had an envelope that she gave us on parents’ night that he was to open the night before kindergarten. So tonight we opened it and it had the cutest letter-

  The envelope contained confetti that he is to put under his pillow so that he can sleep well tonight.  We sprinkled it on his mattress and we are going to see if it helps him sleep all through the night and keep him from being nervous, just like the teacher said it would.


We labeled all their supplies and took them up to school today.  A little reality check on where I live- I asked the first teacher at parents’ night where I would get my carline number. She looked a little confused. I say,”Do all my kids have the same number? What do they call out when it is time to pick up?” She laughed and said,”We aren’t that big- we will just get your kids when you are next in line” 🙂

Thankful for a sweet school to go to tomorrow and praying for each child to believe God’s promise of peace that we have been memorizing this week:

You will hold him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you.  Isaiah 26:3

We put each child’s name in it and went around the table: You will keep Olivia in perfect peace, whose mine is stayed on you because she trusts in you.

So good to know that He is with them, even when I won’t be.
