Preston started school last week. (MDO) He seemed to do great. When I dropped him off the first day he ran to play with the trucks and never looked back! With his birthday being in May, he's one of the youngest in the class. Most of the other children in the class are potty-training. I'll be interested to see how this rubs off on him. At home Preston has shown no interest in it...to the point where I was just going to wait until bebe was here and settled before I started that adventure. But after 2 weeks of school now his teachers have said that he's really trying and watching all the others go on the potty is very intriguing. Enough potty talk, now pictures...
A little gift for his teacher on the first day
Got some new kicks for school
the classic 'first day of school picture'...he wasn't interested in smiling!
Sleepy boy...he's not exactly a morning person! ;)
And last but not least, I'm including a link to a post I read. It's about ceremonies and traditions (i.e. starting school) and so much more. It's encouraging and convicting...I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Here's a little excerpt:
If we chose to "exult in monotony," to embrace habitual ceremony, would we be inviting the same God who instituted the observances of feasts, temple ceremonies, the service of communion, to be our strength too?
Perhaps the repetitiveness of ceremony does not stifle the Spirit, but ceremony invites us to regular meeting places, places to commune with the Spirit.
