Off to School We Go:

Henry started preschool last week and it has been a really fun transition so far. He is so excited about his new class, his teachers, and his new "adult sized" backpack. The night before he started we had a special celebration dinner. We will eventually call it our Back to School Feast, but since this is our first year ever sending one to school it was called our To School Feast. I wanted to make something special for dinner but decided we should just eat something we already had. So frozen pizza it was. I did buy juice boxes for the special dinner. We lite candles. Blew up balloons. And ended the meal with ice-cream and sprinkles. It was perfectly special for a three year old. 

During dinner we talked about school. Talked about what we hope and pray for Henry. And Doug shared stories of his preschool days. 

We picked a verse to pray for Henry this year. I used my minimal artistic ability to draw pictures to hopefully  help Henry remember what we are praying for him. (The next day, Jack grabbed the cards I had made and ran off with them. Henry chased after him, upset, and said "Jack those are so special to me. Give them back." )

Ephesians 3:17- 
Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow into God's love and keep you strong. 

He walked right in to his class on Wednesday and had a great morning. When I picked him up he told me he had a great day but "we didn't do any work.". He is ready to learn and ready to work. None of this just eating snacks and playing on a playground business.
