The First Day of School

Yesterday was the first day of the new school year. Collin and Mary were very excited.... and a little nervous. Jay gave them each (including Jack, who starts preschool next week) a very nice father's blessing the night before. I couldn't resist peeking at Jack, who had his eyes shut tightly, and a huge grin on his face. He was obviously very pleased. Mary had a nice experience. Afterward she told me she felt all tingly, and I was happy to explain to her that she was feeling the spirit. She was absolutely beaming.


  1. This is the first year I have no one left at home. I cried, and then I did cartwheels!

  2. I am loving your new title layout. I must learn that skill.

  3. Ditto on the banner. Will you write a blog and teach us all how you did it?

    I can't believe how your kids are growing !HOW fun!!! You're a great mother, Alice!
