Asher's 1st Day of Kindergarten

Can you believe it?! My baby is in kindergarten! Here he is on his 1st day with his teacher Mrs. Kruegur. He was so excited. I was the dorky mom with tears in my eyes and the camera. He is going to school right here on base so we all rode bikes to and from school together (which Asher thought was awesome). It is weird for him to be gone for such a significant amount of the day but I also know it is good for all of us. Anna and I have been having a rough time together since Joel left. I am not sure if it is because I am doing all the discipline myself so it seems harder or if she is testing the waters, but it has been rocky. Amazingly, she was much better with Asher gone since I could focus my attention on her and enjoy some one on one time. Please pray for wisdom on how I can be the best Mom these kids need right now, to discipline in effective ways, to have fun moments together, and still deal with everyday life.

Our daddy projects are doing well...look at our baby tomato plants! The kids have been so great at watering them everyday and this is what happened in one week. I never expected to see sprouts so fast.


  1. Asher! Way to go. Grandpa and Grandma are so proud of you. To think you are in Kindergarten already. I wish I was there to have a glass of "Grandpa water" with you. Love, Grandpa Thorson

  2. asher looks SO big!! i'm sure he is going to love kindergarten! connor had mrs. krueger and he really liked her!
