On the First Day of First Grade. . .

My Joshua. . .

He had a very good day. He said his teacher was "the best teacher I've ever had." So, I had to ask, "You like her better than Mrs. W?" (Mrs. W. was his kindergarten teacher.) His very diplomatic answer. . . "They are both the best teachers!"
We got into town from the Memorial Service in New Orleans around 9:30 p.m., and Joshua didn't go to bed until after 10. Then, he cried himself to sleep in my bedroom. He woke up teary once again in the morning, but a phone call from his Daddy made him smile. I was a little worried about him, so I got Miss Megan to come watch the little boys so that I could eat lunch with him. And, I can honestly say that by lunch he was doing just fine.

But, he was missed by his Mama and his brothers. I think JCT asked me every hour on the hour if it was time to "go pick Joshua up yet?"

I'm so proud of you, sweet boy. For a sensitive little boy, you are one tough cookie!

He is just too cute Erin. What a dear, sweet Mama you are. Taking the time to be with him was just exactly what he needed.

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
