Before School

video
The boys were up and ready to head out the door this morning for their first day at Italian Public School. I am so thankful for all of the prayers for our children. We have prayed for over three years for this day and this transition, their teachers, and new friendships and it is hard to believe we actually walked thru this day. They had a fantastic first day and we are sooo proud of them. It is hard enough to go to school the first day...then being in a new city... and no one speaks their language. They were eager and there were no tears (I didn't cry either). Deputation prepared us for new situations every week and they adjusted to that, so God has prepared them. God is SOOOOO good to us.

Best video to date. Natalie and I had smiles ear to ear while watching.

Keep the videos coming. Our kids love watching them too.

Tell your kids "buongiorno" from our kids. Is that right?

We miss you guys.

I don't think I've commented before...but it's about time! My favorite line was "I don't think they can help it"

Not sure if anyone else thought that was hilarious, but it made my day!

How funny, I didn't scroll down and read Andrea's comment until I had already made my own.

I laughed at that, too!

Also, I love that you boys wear robes to school. That's just like 'Arry Potta.
