The Final K Blessing

We were blessed to experience our fourth, and final, Asbury Kindergarten Blessing Service.
Although it is a blessing, it is also a time of grieving for this Momma of Four.

I have realizing after sending three of my baby birds off to school, that once they start...I hardly see them again (well, at least til' the next summer). Their teachers actually have more time with them than I do...that's an unsettling feeling - even when you love & adore their teachers!
The wonderful way to combat that uncomfortable feeling is to PRAY for my children.
That is one of the BEST gifts that my own mother passed down to me. She isn't a woman of many words, but she a woman of many prayers.
Speaking of prayers, Pastor Gloria did a wonderful job leading the Blessing Service.

(And an awesome scrapbook...of which my boy wasn't quite calm enough to sit and work on - too much excitement and energy goin' on - this will be an awesome home project) :-)

Do you see an indication of which one of these 5 may end up being a bit of a Class Clown?!
