Hudson's turn! {back to school 2013}

Friday was Hudson's long-anticipated first day back to school! I made these treats for his teachers...
Printable and idea via {here}.
I love this sweet picture of my baby boy...he was soooo beyond excited that it was finally his turn!
This one is a phone pic, but just check out that smile!!  Such a sweet boy!
When I grow up I want to be...
A VETERINARIAN!!!!
"...and I want to be a doctor too." he he he
His lunch requests..."anything blue and orange...my favorite colors!"
Ready to go!
He looks like such a big boy here! 
All 4 yr. 2 mo. of him!  Love him.
Sweetness!
Mrs. P was also there when Grace went through the same program - we loooooooove her! Hudson was excited to see a familiar face while checking things out...
Cookies for you, Mrs. P!

My dear Hudson,
This is the beginning of a new, wonderful, and exciting adventure for you! Daddy and I are very proud of you for being accepted into this gifted program. You have so much love and light inside of you. When you hug people, you hold on and truly squeeze as if transferring the love from your heart onto them. You also have this way about you, at just the times when I need it most, you will come around and look straight into my eyes, sometimes holding my face with your sweet little hands and sometimes just laying your head down on my chest. It's as if you sense that Mama needs extra Hudson-love at that very moment. 

I pray that your teachers will help you learn while nurturing that loving, sensitive side that just means so much. I pray that God will help you develop all those little skills that are so important in life...waiting your turn patiently, not interrupting, sharing, teamwork...and I can't think of anywhere better than K-4 to give it a go! 

Now that you will go to school every day Monday-Friday, I will miss my little Friday buddy more than you will ever know. Fridays were our day to hang out and now we will just have to carve out time on the weekends to continue having those special moments.
We love you more than words can say!
Mama, Daddy & Grace

I have been missing your posts. Love seeing your sweet days! I have been anxiously waiting to know your back to school theme. Love it! I am having trouble settling on one because my oldest will go to jr high, and I have so many themes for her- ha! As always reading how you find the good in all your days encourages me to do the same. Your kiddos have to be so blessed by their mama. I adore your prayers for them! So glad you share!

Thanks, Kelli!
Andrea~ our last minute Seaside vacay meant we ran out of time for our usual Back to School Bash :(

Our theme is "Rise and Shine and give GOD the glory". We're working on doing our best and always being grateful to God for everything...EVERYTHING!
