It’s so nice that their desks are assigned right next to each other at the front of the classroom. On the first day, parents were allowed to spend a few minutes in class before school began.

Well, we made it! We survived the first day of school! The girls were so excited they wanted to leave the house at 7:45. School is only 5 miles away and it starts at 8:30. We all travelled together as a family and I’m happy to say no tears were shed. Not even from me! :)

Instead, the morning was filled with smiles, excitement, and peace. Lots of PEACE. Thank you, Lord! I was probably more anxious than the girls but it’s the best feeling in the world to know that God is with us and even goes before us. 

I was also so touched by all the texts, calls, and emails this morning from sweet friends and family who have been praying for us and supporting us through this transition. Prayers were answered!

The girls had an AMAZING first day. They loved it so much they CAN’T WAIT to go back tomorrow! I so enjoyed hearing all about their day on the ride home and daddy even came home early to get the full scoop.

I usually don’t bake but I wanted to make something special for the girls when they got home so I made their first after school treat. MONSTER COOKIES! You might as well call these things EVERYTHING cookies. Turns out the cookies were simply icing on the cake to an already spectacular day. :)

We’re so proud of your courage and bravery, girls!

Keep shining your light for Jesus!
