Our Second Annual “Back to School Dinner”…

the table…


the highlight of the evening…”sparkly” grape juice…


Galen giving a toast to the “best looking kids in all of Texas”…


Mackenzie waiting for the best part…


Saying “cheers”…


jackorange(no, his front teeth aren’t rotten…just missing:)


Our verse for the year…


Our goals…we had fun reading our goals from last year and then setting new ones…


Jackson, Mackenzie, and Tucker each prayed for their teacher..


A really fun evening together before the busyness of the school year begins.  So thankful for my kiddos and for the opportunity to enjoy this stage of life with them…looking forward to pre-k, Kindergarten, and 2nd grade.:)
