life as a mom

First grade here he comes!

Seriously. Seriously? Seriously! First grade!?!

I’m not quite sure how this happened. Starting first grade, loosing one of his top teeth and turning 7 all within 10 days is a little too much for this mom to take. But at the same time I am loving it. I am so proud of the little dude that he is and little man he is becoming. Here is on his way out the door for his experience at school all day, every day. He’s excited and nervous but ready too. I am feeling the same way. It’s time. I know this. I can feel it.


He carries this heart in his back pack that we made yesterday . Inside it has 2 little hearts and one star to remind him that God loves him and is with him, that we love him and that he would shine like star for others to see. We also are committing to pray each day that he will be strong and courageous in all that he faces for the Lord God is with him wherever he goes. Good reminders for him. And his momma too. He isn’t alone, but faithfully watched over at all times.

So yay! for another new chapter that we jump into with both feet. Our hearts are full!

And I can’t wait till 3pm when the bus drops him off!

Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

Shine like stars in the universe in which you hold out the word of life! Philippians 2:16

I'm a wife to 1 amazing husband. A mom to 1 little dude and 2 girlie girls. A follower of the ONE who saved me. A daughter to 2 wonderful people. A sister to 1. A friend to many. A runner because that's what I do to keep from not going crazy. And the CEO of this little part of the world we call home.


  1. I’m going to do it with girls next month for preschool. They all were really into it. Mase sewed his own heart. Ahhhh. Just melts me. The trips would be all about it too I’m guessing. Next year Kyra!!

  2. Jaim- how are are kiddos in 1st grade already?!? Thinking of you and miss Cate next week!
