First Day of School

Well today is the first day of Kindergarten for little Miss Madi! I'll post a picture of her with her backpack sometime later. We went to open house on Thursday and met her teacher. She is a first year teacher...bless her heart. She is an LCU alum and I went to school with her sister. So I thought that was pretty cool.

Madi was so excited. She barely gave me time to get out of the car this morning to take her in. We had the whole brigade with us, stroller and all. But it was a fun memory for all of us. She is going to one of the new elementaries that LISD just built, so it's a big day for a lot of people.

We are on the mend, I think! We ended up at the ER on Friday night with Mason, just to be sure he was okay. We had already been to the dr. once that day. He has had a horrible bug, not to mention breathing issues. Kyle and I both got it over the weekend, but it was just a one time thing and we were both fine. Mason is still struggling a little bit. They told me in the ER that this can last 10-14 days and to be patient. PATIENT???? I've been thrown up on more times that I can count.

I have another blessing to share! Some friends from Slaton are buying me a whole office setup for my house, so that I can take the kids out of daycare and work from home. Which will do two things for me that I need. One, save me a lot of money, and two, hopefully keep Mason healthier. I am so thankful to them for doing this. I am supposed to get everything set up this week.

Although it's been a hard week, it's been a good week. I've certainly seen the hand of God in so many ways this week!

Today is my sister's birthday. She is 28, which makes her younger than me. And she is my older sister. Yes, she is 28 for the 4th year in a row. Crazy how that happens! Happy Birthday Suzanne!

Okay, so if Suzanne is 28 then I am only 24! Actually I will not go past 25, I just won't do it!! I hope Mason is better, I heard we wasn't feeling well. I hope Maddi had a great day at school, I'm sure she taught the teacher a few things!! Today was Meagan's first day of P-K! Have a great week!!

YEA, YEA, and YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know Madi was more than ready. I am sure she is already beyond most of her class. She will be able to tell the teacher what to expect!

SOOOO sorry to hear about your weekend at the ER and sickness! I hate that you were going through all of that and I was just going about my merry way! PLEASE let me be another resource for you. I know you now have your sisters near by but I am here too!

AWESOME about the home office set-up! For you and the kids. I just knew God was going to bless you in many many ways after the year you have had. Its just going to get better and better.

Oh, and SuzAnne..........She makes her age look good. Yall have some great genes and age has nothing on you!

BTW, I don't know if I have ever mentioned this before, but every time I go to look at your blog I sing the song, "One Day at a Time" for hours after. I used to watch that show as a kid!

That is so awesome about the office thing! If there is any way I can help, I would LOVE to! Are you getting a computer, desk, printer..all the good stuff???? Larissa that is just too awesome.
Hey.....remind me what happened in college? Remember that day at Jennifer's when you were saying you would have never thought you and I would be friends because of ___________. You fill in the blank. Refresh my memory.
