This has been a great week! On Tuesday I made significant headway with Christmas For Kids (thanks to my friend Robin!) and had a wonderful date with Chad to the Cheesecake Factory (thx Jenny for watching the kiddo's!), on Wednesday Shepherd went to his preschool orientation, and I spent yesterday and this morning in Valdosta with the Hicks family!
SO, let me back up a little and talk about Shep's school. Chad and I have really prayed about this desicion and feel total peace about it. He is going to be attending the Christ's Church of Fleming Island private school which will be M,W,F 9-12pm. We are really excited about this program! It's a christian curriculum and I know the director personally from church (the school is in our home congregation)- she's a great lady and we feel really good about Shepherd being under her influence. But more importantly, we LOVE his teacher!! We're going to be having her and her family over for dinner next week so that we can begin to build more of a relationship with her - Shep can't wait to have her over! He starts next Wednesday so I'll post pics after his first day!! :)
Here's a slideshow of pics from our time with John, Melissa and Kayden. I felt like the couch theme was appropriate because Melissa and I sat on the couch talking nearly the entire time! It's so funny because we were interrupted by the kids every 5 minutes and so we both lost our train of thought constantly...we'd look at each other and say "what were we talking about?"....and then the other would say "I don't know!"....and then we'd move on to the next topic! :) We never ran out of topics though and that's one of the reasons I love her - I could've sat on that couch for 2 days straight if I didn't have to drive back to Jacksonville! Please continue to pray for their family...they appreciate them more then ya'll know!
