Back To School, Ring The Bell...
One morning a couple weeks ago Easton decided he was going to try out for the school football team. He's never played or even shown interest in the game before and I was instantly impressed with his bravery. Can you imagine walking onto a field with 65 other 7th graders, loaded up with pads you've never worn and learning a game many of them have played for years? Serious bravery. It was that moment I decided our family motto for this school year would be "Be Brave."
Last Sunday we kicked things off with our annual Back To School Feast. I kept the decor up from the baby shower, made a simple banner and prepared dinner for the ones I love most. Ryan talked to the children about ways to show bravery. Bravery is not all show, you know. Sometimes the most brave things we do are simple, silent acts.
These kinds of nights are my favorite.
In other news, we're headed to the doctor this morning for The Ultrasound. You know, the one where we learn the gender of the baby. We're so excited we can hardly stand it! Any last minute guesses?
