back to school feast.

time for our annual back to school feast.

a special time to prepare for the upcoming school year.

the unveiling of all the kids school supplies and goodies.

some take it more serious than others.

and the unveiling of our family theme for the year.

the hubs and I picked one of our family rules.
speak kindly.

we read this book, and did some firstday. kindword. roleplaying.

the kids colored our focus bible verse.

as I prepared the much anticipated desert.

trent uses "banana pudding" as a catchphrase.
he says it for anything. everything.
and continually begs me to make it.

I thought it was the perfect treat to remind us to speak sweetly.

we showered them with blessings and prayers for the new year.

no doubt everyone was a bit excited about school,
even mom.

"kind words are like honey, 
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body"
Proverbs 16:24

Trent's love for banana pudding is just like his great grand father Pop!
