2Good + 2Be = 4Gotten

We have so many friends/family members starting kindergarten in the next few days/weeks.  It's so hard to believe that Ansley, Cohen, Salene, Vivian, and Will are entering the "big girl/boy" school system.  They are so sweet and we wanted to make sure to express our excitement for them, so we put together a few little school supply items for them to take with them. We delivered a few of the packages today and we will mail out the rest tomorrow.  
 First up, our dear friend Cohen!
Cohen is 4 1/2 and will be starting kindergarten tomorrow.
His mommy is home schooling him.
She has chosen the "Classical Conversation" route.
We are praying for their first day to go smoothly tomorrow.
From what I understand, his requested lunch is packed and ready.
Chicken tender/honey mustard sandwich... crazy kid.
 Salene, my sister and sweet "cousin" to my children.
It seems like just yesterday she was born
How in the world did this happen so fast?
Salene starts school on September 1st.
She's such a smarty and can definitely hold her own.
I have no doubt this will be a great thing for her.
 Aeila, my cuttie pattootie niece.
If you spotted her in person, you'd never think she was old enough for school.
She is such a little shortie, but she's bright as a whistle.  
She lives in PA, so my guess is that school starts after Labor Day!
Mommy will have a quieter house without her around.
 My nephew William will also be starting kindergarten next week.
Right now, he's spending his last week of freedom at the beach.
He's blessed, in that, his mommy works at his school.
I have no doubt he's going to love big boy school.
 Vivian should be entering 1st or 2nd grade with her reading level.
She has been reading since she's been three.  
We will be praying for her mommy to make some good decisions for her.
Her bus picks her up at 645 am, so this will be a huge transition for her. 
She is lucky though to be in Ansley's class and KNOWS the teacher personally.
 Ansley will also appear to be a 1st or 2nd grader, due to her height.
She is probably going to be the tallest kid in her class.
Ansley lives so close to the school that she could probably roll out of bed,
10 minutes before class starts, and be there just in the nick of time.
 The back of their folders relate to our faith.
 Ministering doesn't stop at church or home.
 So, I made sure they bring it into the school system too.

We love each and every one of you and will be praying for an easy transition to take place.  The hardest part is just being gone from home, all day, without any rest.  Otherwise, I think you all will LOVE being at school, learning and playing with your friends. WE, on the other hand, will miss our playdate fun :(  All good things must come to an end, I guess.
