First Day of School

Today we started school for another year! Karis started 1st grade and we celebrated the occasion with pancakes. Who knew I could make pancakes into letters?

Joshua had a J pancake. What a goof!

Charlotte had regular circle pancakes - she doesn't know the difference!

Karis and the teacher on her first day of school - gotta have that for memories sake!

And Karis with the principle - a.k.a. Daddy!

Karis did so well today. She was excited and is still very eager to learn. The other children did wonderfully too! I am so thankful. I was concerned about how Charlotte would do since she is into everything now...but in our new home the playroom/school room is perfect for us! She and Joshua played together and side by side the whole time and I sat down and played with her when Karis was busy with some of her work.

Tomorrow might be a different day. I might be anxious, the kids might not do well, but...there will be grace for tomorrow when tomorrow comes.

This morning I read "The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous run into it and they are kept safe." This strengthened me as I thought ahead on this school year. I am running to the Lord!
