The night before Lovey’s first day of Kindergarten we read “S Is For School” before bed.
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.
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♥
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. He 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
