Schaeffer’s first preschool art project: her face & clothes. The second: the apple tree.

Happy dancey, big girl, school girl.
I can’t help myself from gazing at these pictures over and over. I want to frame every art project that has been sent home in her new ‘school’ backpack.

I can’t believe that Schaeffer Jo has already been in school 2 weeks–and has LOVED every moment of it.

I know you’ll savor these glimpses into her school days, and please, don’t worry, I’ll continue to be ‘that’ mom–and take lots more pictures of my girl going off to school.


“These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” Deut 6:6-9
