1st Day of School

Can you believe how fast time flies?! This morning as we all got ready the kids were so excited! I have to admit I was excited too! We took pictures of them before leaving the house and as we headed for the stairs, Tyler said, "Mom, do I HAVE to take my picture with Kylie?" I told him he had to at least once. He responded with "Mom I am getting to old for this." LOL! Oh my goodness! They both had a wonderful first day. Kylie loves preschool and is in class with her best friend, Brady. Tyler is in 1st grade and has made several new friends today. They both love their teachers and we do too - what a blessing! Here are just a few of the pics from this morning. Kylie loves to have her picture made......I think you will be able to tell ;) Tyler is looking like a big boy now! What a wonderful blessing from God to have two sweet kids!

Church, Shots and School

What an awesome Sunday of Worship we had this past week. It is awesome to see how God has molded, changed and shaped Dallas Avenue in the past 2 years! Sunday night we had the opportunity to visit First Baptist Lavaca. My grandfather was saved at the age of 72 and wanted all his family there! To GOD be the glory!

Kylie turned 4 in May and had to get her shots before pre-school started. All you mommies out there know how hard it is to hold your baby as they get poked by needles. I asked Josh to take her because I was dreading it so bad. He met us there and when the nurse called out "Kylie", she looked at Josh and said "I want Mommy!!" :) Needless to say, I had to hold her during the process. She did so well. She had been so anxious about it that she cried the whole morning before we left the house. When the shots were over she smiled and showed me her muscles and said "Mom I am tough". So sweet!

I can't believe that school is starting next week. I now have a 1st grader!! Where did the time go? As I look at Tyler and Kylie and how much they have grown it makes me want to cherish every moment even more than I already do. It makes me think that if I feel that way, how much more does God feel that way about us. I challenge you to search your heart and make sure you are spending quality time with God daily so He can cherish every moment with you!

**Special Moment of the day** Tyler and Kylie woke up and were playing while I was getting ready. As I walked closer to the bedroom I could hear tiny voices singing "He loves us, Oh how He loves us,Oh how He loves." WOW! Thank you God for coming into mine and Josh's hearts and for helping us lead our children to the cross on a daily basis!
