A Thousand Kisses

I have given this girl a thousand kisses today!

All I've been thinking about is that in the fall, I have to wait 8 whole hours for school to be out to kiss her sweet face again!

Tonight, like every night, Emily and I prayed for her kindergarten teacher. We still don't know exactly who it will be, but I know the Lord does, and we're putting our faith in Him that he will do the very best for us. When we talk about school, we talk about how much fun it will be! There are times when I get this big lump in my throat just thinking about how much I'm going to miss her. But it is usually followed by a thought like "Being sad won't change a thing...just suck it up"! Way easier said than done!

After we finished our prayers, Emily asked if I went into the first grade after kindergarten. I told her yes, and that I went all the way to the 12th grade, then onto college. She asked what college was, and I told her that when you graduate high school and decided what you want to be when you grow up, college will teach you what you need to know. I said, "If you want to be a teacher or a nurse, that is what you would study in college". She said she wanted to be a cowgirl (which she has said MANY times before). I told her that if she wanted to be a cowgirl, then that is what she would study in school (I'm sure "cowgirl" is not even a major). She said, "Momma, what do you want me to be". I told her, "Emily, I want you to be anything you want to be as long as you love the Lord and are happy". She said, "Okay, I guess I'll be a fairy then".

I smiled and smiled after that!

I wanted to show you this picture Emily drew. Chris was thrilled since he's all into fishing lures. I think I may have a future artist on my hands!

Later all!
