Polishing My Bow

Psalm 127: 3-5

3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from him.

4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are sons born in one's youth.

5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

I'm polishing my bow and preparing my heart for the release...easier said than done! Here's Mara Lin on her first day of Kindergarten.

There it goes flying again.

My little girl is a Kindergartner. Can. Not. Believe. It.

Monday was registration day when we got to meet her teacher for the first time. Here's Mara with her teacher...
She is very sweet, warm, caring, motherly, etc....makes the transition for this momma a little easier!

After meeting Ms. Cockrell and hanging out in her room for a little while, we got to go on a Mommy date. I don't get to spend much alone time with the girls so this was a real treat. (Nana had Emily, Becca, and Sam...Sam screamed most of the morning and Becca Sue got two time-outs from thanks just doesn't seem a good enough word to say to Nana!)

We started out at Starbucks to talk about where else we wanted to go...
She got her very own Mocha Frappuccino!
She decided that she wanted to go shopping so we went to the dollar store to pick out some cheap toys. Then ended the morning at Chuck E. much as I hate that place, I really had a blast with my girl. She talked, and talked, and talked, and talked. I needed a nap when we were done!

The only problem now is figuring out how to keep time from flying so fast!

Up next is first day of school pictures...

Catch Up

Ok, it's time to catch up with the blog posts. The last post was photos from May; here's some from July.

This is the amazing sunset we watched as we waited for the fireworks to start on the 4th. Man, God's an awesome artist!
Then the glow sticks came out...

Two-thirds of the girls loved the fireworks, but Mara was very unimpressed. She wanted to see them closer. Oh well, she did love doing "fireworks" at the house though.

So if it were six weeks ago I'd say "Happy 4th of July", but since it's not...I'll just say "Happy August 14th!"
