Today is Aubrey's first day of K-4 pre-school. He went last year for 2 days a week and loved it, but this year he wasn't too keen on going. Last night we talked before he went to sleep and I told him that we would have a special treat after his first day of school. He said, "What special treat?" I told him we would go get an ice cream cone at Dairy Queen. He said, "That's not a special enough treat." I said, "What would be a special enough treat?" He said, "I think going to Bompie and Grandma Bonnie's house and going down to the creek with Bompie would be a special treat." I said, "I think that sounds great, and I'm sure Bompie would love that too." So, after school today that is what we are going to do. I am so thankful that Aubrey loves his grandparents and has a relationship with all of them. That will be a special afternoon for him. I am also thankful that he is in a wonderful pre-k program at our church where he is taught the abc's and 123's, but also God's Word and important Christian ideas and lessons. It is such a blessing. There are no girls in his class this year so far, so please keep his teachers in your prayers!
Tonight we get going back into our Wednesday night programs at church. I am leading the first through third grade children's choir this year, so that should be fun.
I'm also in the midst of watching the Republican National Convention. How exciting! I actually watched C-Span last night for possibly the first time ever! Maybe one day I will get to be a delegate. For now I will have fun just watching. My sis in law Amy was actually laughing at me the other day because I told her I had to get my Republican elephant Jibbitz out to wear in my Crocs. Can you imagine?
