Well, our girlie is officially a 7th grader. I was glad yesterday (orientation, getting set up with lockers, etc.) went really well. And this morning one of the girls (classmate) she kind of knows came up and gave her a hug. I saw the relief and happiness in her eyes and I must say, I felt the same way. She got a big hug from another girl yesterday, too. 

The teachers all seem nice. She's all set up with backpack and athletic bag for P.E. Binders. Pencils. Paper. Folders. I still need to go get her a calculator later today, they were all sold out at Wal-Mart. 

She had a hard time going to sleep last night, so we had a nice long worship. SHE read to me. In the back of her Bible, there are pages that say, "What to do when..." and then say "if you're afraid," or "if you need comfort," etc., and have verses you can look up. She looked them ALL up! ha! It was a lovely time and I'm so glad He is the one she turns to when she's afraid or nervous. 

I asked her what specifically she was nervous about and she said not knowing what her schedule is. So I found the "parents packet" they gave us and gave her a copy of the schedule. She felt lots better after that. See, they only get 3 minutes between classes! But the building is small, so I think she'll be fine. 

I will be thinking of her all day! I guess that's what it means to be a mama--your child is always in your heart. No matter where SHE is, or no matter where I am, I'm always thinking of her and praying for her.

Sorry for not writing on here lately. I don't know where the summer went! Our move to Keene went well and now we are settling in as much as possible. I have some art to share, but since we have no Internet at home, and may not for a while, it's difficult to get my photos up on here.

All for now,
