Back to School!

Monday night Kent told the boys to come upstairs and into the computer room where I was. Kent wanted to give them their Father's Blessings for the school year. This is a VERY IMPORTANT tradition in our family that we do each year...the night before school starts.

Can I say I was in awe of this man that I get to call my husband. I was so thankful he remembered to do I hadn't even thought about it. Things have just been so busy around here that I had forgotten about thee most important thing they were needing BEFORE they went back to school...a blessing!

Kent even gave Brynley and I a blessing as was so nice! When the boys were getting their blessings Bryn would fold her arms for the first 20 seconds and then start to play. But when the boys blessings were done she climbed up on the chair and sat down folded her arms and bowed her head...SO CUTE!! So Kent gave her a quick blessing as she instantly started to wiggle of course.

I am so grateful Kent asked to give me a blessing as well. Didn't even think about me needing one. But man did I ever! It has helped calm me and remember what is really important.

and Cole heading off to their first day of school!

Cole is now in Grade 7...say WHAT?!?!?! Seriously, what the heck...I can't believe I have a kid old enough to be in Grade 7!

Tyson is in Grade 4 and thrilled to have a "guy" teacher this year! His teacher's name is Mr Klinger...Tyson had him as his teacher in Grade 2.

I have to admit I was looking forward to the boys going back to most Mom's! BUT, I do feel bad for them as this Summer didn't feel like much of a Summer. The weather was not good so therefore we just didn't get to enjoy being outside and doing all the fun things we normally like to do.
Tyson was SO excited to go back to school! Cole was so-so about it...but I found it funny that Cole was up and ready before everyone Tuesday morning. So in the end I think he was excited to go back as well.

I remember when I was growing up and the first day of school was ALWAYS so exciting. You got to wear your new clothes, new back pack and see all your friends...what more could a kid want =)

Dang! I wanted to do the father's blessing before school too and totally forgot!!! It's so great that you guys did it and that Kent was the one to think about it!

Oh you bet!!! Father's blessings for going back to school are the very best thing.

Glad you got one too. ; D Mom's need all the help they can get with such busy school years!

Yup that Kent is a keeper for sure!!

Wish we had done father's blessings for our kids. I grew up without them too.
So so glad my children are doing this in their homes with our grandchildren.
Cole and Ty look way too old in those handsome pictures,,,give them hugs for me.
