So it begins......

We began the school year today.  It went as planned and everyone got there on time.  I felt very proud of us.  Claire was a little nervous about today.  We had gone to open house but she didn't get to see any of her friends there and thought they weren't in her class.  She found a close one....not the bestie, but close enough.  Lunch is with the rest of the gang.  She ran from the school building today with a huge smile on her face and proclaimed "I had a great day!!!!" Makes this mamas heart feel really good inside.  She is such a joy at this age, everything is still so magical.

First day smiles all around.
Hannah began 10th grade today.  How can that be possible?  I remember MY soph. yr. and how grown up I felt (right now all my 10th grade friends are rolling on the floor laughing....GET UP) and I can't believe that Hannah is that age.  She wants to badly to begin drivers ed studying.  ARGH! Really not ready for that. Kevin will stay home and enjoy some one-on-one time.  He LOVED it today. We are throwing in little fun lessons everyday and he thinks he is in his own school.  He even got a new backpack. I thought he would have more trouble with Claire gone.....seemed quite adjusted today.  I guess it should be heaven for him, no one telling him what to play and when to play it, he gets to chose the movie of the day, he got his lunch choice....this could really be a sweet deal for wonder he was in such a good mood today.  Have a great yr everyone.

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
