1st day of KINDERGARTEN

after much anticipation and prayer the big day arrived.
mommy had a hard time with this guy going to kindergarten. this guy, on the other hand, thought it was awesome and loved every second of it!

backpack, lunchbox, cool new tee and sneakers...

knuckle sandwiches from daddy...

remember these bracelets we made as kids? i thought it would be fun to make one for the kids to remember mommy by during the day if they needed to. plus, they are cool! (bri got hers last Thurs, brax got his this morning)


brax and bri walking to class...




right outside the new classroom... he's pumped, i'm holding it together.



found his name on his desk, met some friends, started coloring, and waved goodbye...

i am so proud of this guy!
bittersweet day for this ole mom! another milestone in life with my children!

It is so tough to let your babies go to school-I have a 4th and 2nd grader-but when baby B gets here, I will get to enjoy another 4 years before she is in school!!!
Thinking of you!

Did you get my email recently re the TB adoption issues in Ethiopa and China? I did not hear back from you...just wanted to know if you were aware.

We ran in to your crew last night getting off of 840. I asked Braxton how school was and he said GREAT!!!! Briley was pumped too. Your kiddos are too stinkin' cute.

It was so nice to meet you at the Johnson's on Sunday. We are praying for your family's adoption and look forward to your updates.
