Finding our groove...

Well that's at least been my goal this last week and a half. I don't know about you, but I haven't quite found it yet. Fall activities are beginning, school is in full swing, and soccer season is upon us, but even though we are really busy, I haven't quite gotten us in a good routine yet. I'm still trying, and am confident that we will fall into our groove soon.

This week "A" finally joined Cor at school and officially became a BIG KINDERGARTNER!!! Monday, when her alarm went off, she literally jumped out of bed and was dressed in a matter of minutes.

I have seriously NEVER seen this girl move so fast. After breakfast, we all walked to school and when we reached her classroom, she bounced through the door and never looked back. There was NO hesitation at all!!!

"A" has the same teacher Cor had for Kindergarten who we absolutely LOVE and ADORE. We know "A" is in good hands and we are praying that the Lord will accomplish great things in her life this year.

Next week, we have one more "first" to celebrate.

Riley will begin preschool for the first-time- ever!! He will be going Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays this fall. Today, we met his sweet teacher and a few new friends that will be in his class.
He is SO excited and can't wait to be a "big kid" and go to school now too!!

Hoping you are enjoying a GREAT week and looking forward to the L--O--N--G weekend ahead!

So, so, SO excited that A loves school! She looks SO adorable and grown up! Praying that she has a wonderful year!
Very excited for Riley as he starts school this year, too. I can only imagine all the great stories he's going to have to tell you!

Oh, Little Miss "A" is so dang cute! I hope all goes great for her this year too. Your little preschooler is looking rather sharp!

I feel for you. We haven't gotten into the rhythm here either. I went back to work teaching preschool this year and having to get myself ready and out the door and both boys dressed and ready for school has been a challenge.

"A" looks so sweet and adorable! I know that we are only "blog" friends but I feel like that little girls life will be forever changed for the better by having you as her foster mother. Motherhood is an amazing mission field.

Good luck finding your groove!

"A" is so beautiful. So glad she had a great first day of class.

Anxious to see Riley's pictures.

Enjoy the long weekend.

A looks so sweet going to school on her first day! Has anyone told you she is starting to look like the boys? I think she does. I am very excited about the long weekend! Hope you all have a great one! I just completed my 70 miles running for the last 4 weeks. I finally made my goal. But if you are training for your marathon I bet you are almost running that in a week! My next 5k is in Oct. I am running with both of my big boys and their Cross Country team. They are having a fundraiser and opening up one of their races to the community. SO that should be fun! You still need to tell me how you are training and your mileage per wk. Also, what kind of shoes do you run in. I just bought some new Nike Dual Fushions and they suck! I am still wearing my Shox. I love them, but need new ones.

So glad that "A" is excited for school! And yeah for Riley getting to join the school kids at preschool! I know that Davis is excited to start back on Wednesday. As for finding your groove - I'm sure it'll come. We've been in school for over a month now and we had found our groove, but now that all the fall activities are starting up again, I'm going to have to find a new groove! Hope you find yours very soon!
