With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: First Day of School

First Day of School

Ryan began 3rd grade yesterday. Brenna began 1st and it was Shaela's very first day of kindergarten.
These photos from Jill warmed my heart!
 Up and dressed even before mom awoke!
 Shae, Brenna & Ryan all ready
 A rainy day didn't dampen the excitement of the first day of school
 off they go....
no looking back or apprehension... Shaela has been looking forward to school for a long time!

Nothing more precious than watching them and seeing them express their total excitement about school! Oh, their sweet faces were just adorable!

These little ones sure are cute. Don't you love that you can be part of the experience so quickly.

i think the first day of schools always bit harder on the parents than the kids...seeing their 'baby' starting a new stage in life :)
it is soooo cute that the sisters are dressed the same and in such lovely pink too :D

Adorable photos, LDH. Those darling children love going to school. Way to go. Thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

They are all such beautiful children, Lorraine! What a blessing to have those pictures.

I see the garbage man in that town has stock in the company that produces garbage cans. The harder you toss them and leave them the sooner you'll need new ones. Our own "fella" likes to heave them close to the next door neighbor's mailbox...yeah...he is THAT guy! xo Diana

It's nice to see them so happy to go to school and the girls so pretty in pink. My boys were actually happy to start back this year as their summer was way too long. Even kids need routine at some point. They have to wear uniforms to school so it's a job keeping those clean and ready every day. :/ Hope your weekend is a good one. Tammy :)

Leann said...

I loved how the girls dressed alike! It is always harder on the parents, and doesn't get any easier on us does it? They look so grown up going off together!

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for the birthday wishes!

Beautiful, precious grandchildren Lorraine. I have a grandson who started Kindergarten this year also. His cousin is in PreK and was so disappointed he was not in "big school" again this year with his sister. My other grandson and granddaughter are 9 and 8 (cousins) and they have always loved school and done well.
I also stopped in just to say, and that I am thinking of you in my heart. So many times, there is so much attention those first few days when we loose a loved one, then...because life is so complex and people have so many issues of their own to deal with, the "caring and concern" dribbles away and sometimes during this still "raw missing period" we want another hug, another smile.....So this is a cyber hug from me to you. Blessings,
Lynn

What precious photos of their first day. It must be comforting that they were so excited.

The B's said...

They are all set! I just love pictures of your sweet family. School is cool! =)

Ann said...

My daughter was the same way when she first started school. Jumped right on that bus and never looked back. She left me on the sidewalk crying my eyes out...lol
They do look excited to be going to school. Hope they carry that enthusiasm with them all through their school years
