It is the evening of the First Day of School. By God's love and grace, our family successfully made it through this momumental first day. However, let's define "successfully": no tears (except Mommy's), no calls from the principal or an English-speaking teacher who is able to translate, 3 pleasant children at pick-up and as Andrew put it--Noah didn't hit anyone with a stick. Yes, this was a successful first day of school. We are so thankful for all those who prayed for us and our children on this step-of-faith-kinda-day. We felt enabled by God's peace and strength that was a result of your prayers. For now, we are taking it one day at time...and we'll see how tomorrow goes! But tonight, we are celebrating a good day and giving God the glory for it!
