Today was the first day of school for 3 out of 4 kids. We have a 5th grader, 3rd grader and a 2nd grader. All BEYOND excited for school to start. They were excited to see friends and all three love math and science. It's the first year Josiah and Alayna could ride the bus together. It's also the only year, until they are seniors that they will be in the same school together. It was fun seeing their excitement...until they left...then my little man was crushed to see his best friends all leave on the bus without him. Thankfully we've had a fun day and soon we will walk to the bus stop and greet them with hugs and listen to all their stories about their first day of school!

Friday night we had a double date with Dan's sister and brother in law and we enjoyed riding a surrey bike through Lindenwood Park and great conversation as we hung out.
Saturday we hung out all afternoon and then took in a Red Hawks game and each kid made it in the big screen and they greeted Hawk Eye before we went into the game. It was a fun and memorable night!
Tomorrow we will enjoy going to church together and then we will say good bye until next summer most likely. It's bitter sweet...

As I type this I'm listening to my daughter sing along to worship songs...she is a monotone not so great singer right now, but oddly enough I love listening to her. I wonder if that's how the Lord hears us...He loves the sound of our heart, not the sound of our voice....

We went to the eye Dr today. The whole family got their eyes checked. Josiah is far sighted, but at his age that will hopefully correct itself. Seth also is far sighted and it's possible he will need glasses in the next couple years. It was his first time at the eye doctor and he thought it was pretty fun!
Alayna is far sighted along with her brothers, but twice as much as Josiah. She needs glasses for school and reading. We picked out her glasses and they are ADORABLE...much cuter than my first pair...though they are purple just like mine were. :-) She's not thrilled with the idea and she was worried about being teased.We read "You are special" by Max Lucado tonight and it was just what she needed to hear. After that, she realized how many people/friends wear glasses and she was excited about them. We will get them just in time for school to start. Hopefully her excitement will continue!
