Another kindergarten first

Today was Collin's first kindergarten field trip!
Daddy and Madelyn joined in on the fun and chaperoned.  
 I was already out of the classroom two times this week for school business so I decided I should sit this one out.
Daddy did a fabulous job of documenting the day through pictures!

Collin was very nervous about this trip.
He said he "needed me".  
Since starting kindergarten he suddenly feels he needs his momma for anything and everything that involves school.
I was so happy when daddy reported that Collin got over his nerves and had a great time!!

This child would have gotten on the bus and ridden away without any of us.  I don't know that she has ever been nervous about anything!  :)
 This kindergarten crew~

Parents drove separate from the bus.
Collin was just eagle eyeing his teacher to make sure she did indeed make it back onto the bus.  :)

What a fun day for the kinders and their families!

My beauty

A daughter.
God gave me a daughter.
I always imagined myself having one.
Spent some days wondering if it would ever come to be.
 And then he gifted her to me when I least expected it.
 Surprised me with His timing.
 Oh how I've always wanted her.
 Dreamed of all she would be.
 Her beauty steals my breath.
Her squishy hugs blanket me with purpose.
 Her eyes invite me to dig deep into who God has made her be.
 Her giggle is like a healing balm.

 And to think, it's only just begun.
This is just a glimpse of who God made her to be.

All of this wrapped up in one beautiful little girl.
I will spend my life thanking Him for choosing me to mother her.

What a gift she is.
To me.
To our family.
To all who know her.
What a gift...

Spirit Week

This week is spirit week at school!
Fun times, let me tell ya.
Well fun for the littles leads to nightly homework for a momma.
And try being the teacher of said littles who are daily dressed Halloween style.
Yep, fun times!  :)

Monday was PJ day.  I didn't snap a shot.

Tuesday~ Super Hero Day
Collin chose to be Batm@n.
Clearly he took it very seriously...
 Wednesday~ Disney Character Day
Hello Woody!
Insert momma homework.
His makeshift costume turned out cute, yes?!
 Thursday~ Crazy Hair Day
Look at this blue mohawk!

Bring on red and white day!
Yes, bring on some normal!
