Back To School

Our children start school today. I can't believe how fast the summer went!
I have such mixed emotions about sending Hannah to kindergarten. In one breath I think, she is used to attending school, but on the other hand she has only been home for just over a month and a half. I wish we had a little more time with her adjusting to life in good old Hamer. I guess the good thing is that she will only go half a day, and then I will be able to spend some good one on one time with her.

Ashlynn will be in 1st grade! She wasn't at all excited for school to start. Her and Hannah have had such a great time playing together. As a mother I worry.... I worry about her being in school all day..... I worry about her eating her school lunch, she is such a picky eater. I may end up making her a lunch to take to school. I don't look forward to that. She is a smart girl and will do great. Both her and Hannah had their hair done for school. Aren't they both so cute!

Alyssa will be in the 6th grade. She is growing up so fast. She was excited and nervous to go back to school, she will have a strick teacher who expects alot from her students, but she's up for the challenge.

Bryce will be a senior this year. Where did that time go!!! He loves, loves, loves school. He is very smart, and is not at all humble about it. He will have a busy year, he is student body president, and is a national officer for BPA, plus he is a 4.0 student.

Since our children first started school I have always taken their pictures on the first day of school. I think they are pretty darn good looking, if I do say so myself.

I hope they have a great year! If they are half as smart as they are good looking, they will all be valedictorians!

Your girls have BE-AUTIFUL hair (as Juliana would say). She LOVES looking at your blog and pointing out "Plecious" (she still can't make the 'R' noise). So, forever she will be Plecious to us. And, she is.


P.S. 4.0 student? WAY TO GO!!! You guys must be doing a great job. And, he sounds like one smart kid.

Hooray for back to school! You guys go back early! You're such a cute mom to those kids! I hope Hannah enjoys kindergarten!! I'm sure she'll have so much fun playing with new friends!

I heard you went to the hair mom! Isn't she fun? Next time we will have to make a plan and visit during the 5 plus hours of hair doing. This last time it took Lillian 7 hours with 2 girls working hard. The price of beauty, and your girls are gorgeous!

Okay I am blogging hopping, well sorta. I found your blog after looking at the Lucky hill website. I am super ecstatic to find other families that have the same desire to complete their family through adoption. We adopted our son(at birth) 7 yrs ago. Since then we have tried many times, but it just hasn't happened yet for us. One was an adoption through Haiti for 3 children and after 1 yr into the adoption we were told our kids would never be ours because of their 1974 law saying we had to many bio-children. It was devastating for our whole family. However we know that our family is not complete so we continue to search. I am so happy to have heard of Lucky Hill and hope this might be our opportunity. I love to find others that share in the blessings, joys of adoption and having larger families!
