Good Bye Summer...Hello School

The Summer was way to fast this year for me...I am sure the kids were glad to get away from me, but I could have used a few more weeks of summer!!!
Today Destinee started HIGH SCHOOL!!!!
What a week..15 years of marriage and our little girl goes to HIGH SCHOOL!!
She looked so adorable this morning. She is such a sweet girl, I pray HIGH SCHOOL is 4 amazing years for her. Please pray for her..she is a go getter and has a full plan for all 4 years...she is taking all advanced classes and doing ministry at church and hanging out with friends. I pray through it all God would grant her endurance and lots of wisdom and discernment. I was excited to see her get up early this morning so she could fit in her morning devotions before she got ready for school. She is an amazing girl!

John Jr. and Spencer returned this year to Toano Middle school. They were both looking forward to going back and seeing their friends. Spencer will continue to play in the school band and John has decided to step out and focus on bass guitar in the church youth band. Next year John will be off to High school too...where does time go?

Gabriel has only been on summer vacation for 3 1/2 weeks due to going to extended school year..but he was more then EXCITED to get up and get on the bus for school today!!!! He is going into 5th grade this year, God has blessed him greatly this year as he will have Ms. Carol again this year has his teacher :) WOOOOOHOOOO!!!! As well has Gabriel will be on the same bus again with Ms. Karen (driver) and Ms. Phyllis (Aide)... God is GOOD!!!
This is Gabe getting on the bus this morning... Ms. Phylis is on the left and Ms. Karen on the right. They are the sweetest ever and they are funny and most important they take great care of Gabe. His bus ride is an hour into school and an hour home, so it is a wonderful thing Gabe loves it and they do such a good job with him :)
Nathaniel started 4th grade today at a brand new school and without Spencer this year. So he was a bit anxious this morning but he did a great job. He is so ADORABLE...I could pinch his cheeks! He is really started to develop his own personality. Looking forward to all the new things he will learn and do this year!

PRAYING YOU ALL (that was just for Destinee ;) have a BLESSED first day of school!!!
We love you guys lots!!!
