Friday--"Fun"day

Friday morning, Riley was honored at school as a "Terrific Kid"!!!
  Each month, a different student from each classroom is chosen based on three things: showing a positive attitude, exhibiting the character trait of the month, and being a responsible citizen.
This month, the character trait was HONOR!
  We are so... proud of our boy for being recognized for this particular character trait!
Riley is such a sweetheart and I am thrilled to know he does his best to be respectful and kind at school. 
More importantly though, my deepest desire is that Riley would not only be considered "honorable" at school, but he would find true joy in bringing honor to his Lord and Savior in all he does. I pray Riley would know and understand what "true honor" means and that THAT would be his greatest achievement!!!
Romans 12:9-13
 Let love be genuine. Hate what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.  Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,  serve the Lord.  Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.   
Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

After the "Terrific kid" breakfast at school, the little ones and I had a fun play date to attend. My sister, B had scheduled a tour at their neighborhood fire station, and invited us (and some other friends) to come along!

The kids were sooooo excited!!!
Of course, Hudson insisted that Spot (his very special fire dog) come along for the tour as well!
 The firefighters were incredibly patient and gracious as our sea of preschoolers invaded their station.
 They invited the kids to see where they live,  allowed them to play with their tools,
 and then let everyone take turns driving the firetruck!
It was such an amazing day AND one my kids won't soon forget!
