Kindergarten Open House

Lovey’s Nana joined us for his Kindergarten open house.  It was an opportunity to meet his teachers more in-depth, take another tour of his school and see exactly where our big boy will be doing so much learning and growing over the next twelve years of his life. It was bitter and sweet all at the same time.

The first step in the next chapter of our family’s life.10389148_10201610697589727_2941888604416854421_n10455806_10201610692269594_8357075676146976668_n10612766_10201610696389697_4287403557400574389_n10568919_10201610695229668_10614390_10201610698749756_6274562870891987316_n10580010_10201610697789732_3436053804540359277_n

Soccer Boy

    Since Lovey was a small boy he’s had a fascination with soccer.

Yesterday he and I played a few games in the backyard. We pretended to be captains of our own teams. He named his The Alphabets and I named mine The Rollie Pollie Ollies.s3s2ss1The Alphabets won, 20-19, per Lovey’s score keeping.s4

Counting My Blessings On A Sunday Afternoon

Counting My blessings On A Sunday Afternoon 

is where I reflect on a few of the many blessing and special moments in my life at the end of every week♥    photohihjij

   This week I am especially thankful for!…

~The last blooms on our rose bushes of the season, including a precious picture that I was able to catch of my little Love with them.

~Random Pokémon card houses being built by Lovey and his Dad, sprawled out on the livingroom floor Saturday night.

~A final confirmation that all things are a go for Lovey to start Kindergarten at the school we selected for him. After a higher than average influx of applicants, Lovey was put on a waiting list and we have been prayerfully awaiting a response. Thankfully, everything seems to have worked out as God has planed and he is accepted!

~Summertime traditions with my boys, time down by the river and our favorite pizza place.

~New friends. Mister and I met a very nice couple that has a little boys Lovey’s same age. The boys had a great time playing together and Mister Mister and I were pleasantly surprised how very much the couple and ourselves have in common. We will plan another play date with our boys again sometime soon. 

~Another Sunday night cuddle session in Mister Mister’s and my bed with Lovey watching Frozen (dare I say for the very first time!) Then, once Lovey was asleep and put into his bed, Mister Mister and I watched God’s Not Dead and snacked on chocolate covered strawberries that I made for us. A perfect way to end the week. ♥  

Thank You Lord,

for Your many gracious blessings in my life!

This summer Mister Mister and I celebrated our eleventh anniversary together. 10524362_10201376948306141_7882419521848428463_nHe loves Lovey and I fiercely. He works so incredibly hard to provide for our family. He does His best to right his wrongs – to learn, to grow, to move forward. There isn’t a day that goes by that he doesn’t make Lovey and I smile and laugh. He will forever be my always and I will love him equally as long. xo
