First Day of School 2009

Well, I survived the first day of school (and so did the girls)! I know it was two days ago, but I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to blog about it until now. It was hard, fun, emotional, exciting and probably lots of other emotions that I can't put into words. Fortunately, Gib was home with me all day. We had a nice breakfast at Cracker Barrel after we delivered the girls to their appropriate destinations.

We walked both girls to their classrooms. Jessica's school starts before Emma Grace's so we went to her room first. Because traffic is so bad around the schools, we walked from Jessica's school to Emma Grace's. That was my favorite part of the morning. I loved holding her little hand in mine while she talked our ears off. She was so excited, but very apprehensive once we got to her classroom. She went in and ended up having a GREAT day!

I made them cinnamon rolls for their first day as a special treat.

Of course, we had to have a photo shoot before we ever left home.

I have a lot on my heart and a lot to blog about, but that's all I have time for now. I would love for you to pray for me and my work.....



  1. I am praying for you Tonya regarding work. I had been wondering how it was going and if you started yet. You are close to my heart:) He will sustain us.
    In HIS love,

  2. Hi Tonya...thanks for stopping by my porch...

    Love to you...
