First days - 5th, Kinder, Pre-K

to be very honest leaving the kid's schools was in the top five of hardest parts of moving.  especially the boys - they had an incredible group of friends, established positive sports teams, and a school that we all loved.  really their life could not have been better, filled with support, community and simply good people surrounding them.  it was a HUGE leap of faith to believe that they were going to be okay leaving and starting over.  here are the first day of school pictures from our apartment complex.  a very different first day of school, but i could not be more proud of how brave all four kids were and how they have dove in 100% to build a life here.  kids are extremely resilient and our prayer is that it will build character and confidence not ruin there life.

That's true. Leaving school is not easy for kids. They have to leave their friends after all. But, these four kids are really good. They managed everything by themselves. Nice pics!
