First Day of Kindergarten!

The first day photo

The greeting from his teacher!

the family photo - taken by the teacher!

the hug!

the departure!

a bit of hesitation!

a bit more hesitation - (this is his nervous look)

Jack - even more hesitant (it takes him a few times to settle in).
After this photo came the crying and sobbing!

Kyle was thinking - uhhhh  - tell me your not leaving me too?!?!

Hey there Kelly! Thank you once again for sharing your lives with us. I love all the pictures of the first day at school. John stopped by my desk today with Kyle. I was happy to hear that he is off his oxygen during the day... praise God! I wanted to hold him, but last time I tried that he cried and I just couldn't do that again to that precious baby boy! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you guys. I am praying for you as you deal with the issues with your home... I know, it's just stuff.

Much love and prayers,
Tracey H.

I can't believe Kate and Jadon are in 1st grade and Kindergarten...I remember, almost like it were yesterday, the Fall Retreat that they both attended--when they were just babies. I know I have those pictures somewhere. I hope Jadon loves Kindergarten as much as Kate did.

O M G - we laughed & laughed at the caption of Kyle's concern about being left.... Oh we laughed... He is so precious.. and I loved Jack's honesty & just cried... though I remember my Matt being so much like Jadon & being a little nervous but still in control. You have so many more sweet "1st" to experience ~ thanks for sharing them with us... Hugs ~ GranMammy B

Our Story

This story begins with 5 people. John, Kelly, Jadon, Jack, and Kyle (he is only 23 weeks old... and he is still safely tucked away in his mommy's belly) In an hour's time Kyle made his way into the world. 1 pound, 3 ounces- 11 and a half inches long. This family will never be the same. This child is a warrior. He has the spirit of a Lion, and more courage than a whole pride. He is fierce, and fearless- and he is teaching us to fear the Lord- and to believe that God is in our midst and healing even now. Join us as pray, as we praise, and as we journey through this life as lovers of God and all His glory.

Kyle is in the March of Dimes Promo!
