Last Thursday Asher had his first day of First Grade!
We officially have an elementary school student and I can't believe it. It does NOT seem like 7 years ago that I was pregnant with this little bean. Time really does fly.
How was the start of Kindergarten a whole year ago already? I'm pretty sure I just took this photo last week. It's no wonder this boy needs all new pants - look how much our door is shrinking!
At dinner the day before school started we spent some time talking to Asher about our family verse for the year.
Let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good deeds and
praise your Father in heaven.
Our prayer for Asher this year is that he will be a good friend, a good listener, and respect his teacher and classmates. We pray that his little light will be a beacon to those who are lonely. We also pray that he'll be surrounded by good influences and have lots of fun!
Get ready first grade, here he comes!
