Back to School

Back to school, Back to school, to show my dad that I'm no fool! Ok so maybe Chase was not singing that particular tune, but, he was definitely singing "please don't make me get up mom, i don't want to go to school"!!

It's that time of year again when parents are frantically running around the house trying to find this, trying to cook that, and trying to not be late! (well maybe that is just me) 
Chase started the 1st grade this year and he could have cared less. I walked him to his class and he was just walking in circles talking about some catfish he caught last weekend, I swear that kid would talk to a deaf person if they looked slightly interested! 
He looked super cute in his plaid shorts and pale yellow collared shirt (both staples of any true southern boy's closet). 
He is carrying his same book bag from last year but he finally grew into it and it has his name on it so why not?!

Chase goes to our small town private school and we are so thankful that he is able attend a school that is so focused on Christianity and having a relationship with God. The school year kicked off with a convocation in the gym that featured not one, but two pastors! They both preached a little but mainly we prayed for the upcoming year, the students, parents, faculty, and our country. God is so good and I am blessed to have my children in an environment that nurtures that relationship. They say prayer every morning over the intercom as well as say the pledges to the Christian and American flags. I honestly believe this is what is wrong with the public school systems, once you take God out of something it only leaves room for the devil!

Bailey was more excited than Chase about him starting school! She wanted to be in every picture!

The yearly bookbag shot! He has grown i know a good 6 inches since last year!! 
Sitting right between two pretty girls, he is a happy fellow!!

I pray he has a successful and fun year. I am so proud of him:)
