Then we took a few quick pictures on the porch before heading out the door.
We proceeded to take each child and get them settled in their rooms. Peyton sat down and immediately began chatting with some other boys in his class. Next came Ava Jane; that big girl walked in, hung her backpack right up and started playing immediately. She wouldn't have even said "bye" to me except that I said, "I'll see you soon sweet girl!" She was completely fine for us to leave. Emerson found his spot at his kindergarten table and settled right in too. Last but not least, we dropped Lawson off in the hallway next to his little buddy Ridge.
After everyone was in their proper places I went up to Warrior Hall to the Tears and Cheers coffee social where I met several really nice ladies and got to meet some new and returning families. I look forward to what this new year will bring.
It was an early pickup today, so I got all my peeps at noon and headed to The Purple Cow to eat with Adam. The kids loved their purple milk shakes!!
I look forward to what this next year holds. It's all new to me--almost all the people who are there are new to me, the schedule and the routine. Every single part of this year will take some getting used to for us all, but I am excited for what this next chapter holds for me and my kids. I'm grateful that we have the opportunity to put our kids in a place where they are taught the same things we are trying to instill in them at home; a desire to be Warriors, not just in mascot and name but in character as they seek first His kingdom and as they move onward and upward in their walk with God. I'm praying that this year will be a great one for us all! (If I look tired in that last picture, its because I.AM.EXHAUSTED!)
