A Very Big Day...

a very big day indeed...
monday was full of firsts.
sissy moved into her apartment with the help and love of grandma (my mom)

we all drove to utah last week, but the little princess and i had to come home this past weekend because she and bub started school yesterday. i was so GRATEFUL to my mom for staying with sissy and helping her make this important move. it was harder than i can put into words to leave and not be there to help her settle in but i was comforted knowing that she was in good hands. i was happy to hear a smile in her voice and get a picture message of her new room.

and speaking of firsts...
the little princess started first grade. what a big day for her going to school for a full day.

when i picked her up, i expected a tired girl & i was prepared to give a pep talk if needed.
it wasn't needed. her smile was as big as it was when i dropped her off and she was full of excitement.

it was a good day for both of my girls and i'm looking forward to sharing with them all the blessings that this year has in store for them.

Julie,
I was blessed to be asked to go and I so enjoyed being there. Chelsie is settling in and enjoying her new roommates and all the fun that comes with it. I'm sure cupcakes are in the works soon.
Maysn my sweet princess you look adorable and I can't wait to see your new room.
Love Mom
