Special Friends Day at School

Sunday, April 29, 2007

Friday was "special friends and grandparents day" at the boys school. Since, grandma could not make it this time, Kate was the "special friend" for the day. I must admit that it was challenging to get any good photos with the crowds and my big camera and the kids. However, it was a very nice day with the boys and the wonderful community of people at their school so I thought I'd share what I have.

Harry's class sang songs in the chapel. They sang Jesus loves the little children, He's got the whole world in His hands, cum-bay-ya, Jesus loves me this I know and others such as these. It was so sweet.

Will's class challenged the friends and grandparents to a game of "Are you smarter than a 3rd grader?" Will earned two points for his team and I earned one for ours (the capital of Washington State). I think the teacher ended the game when the children were ahead by one. Then, we had a nice lunch with the boys.

As Kate and I strolled the halls, teachers, staff and parents stopped us to meet Kate and fuss over her. I was overwhelmed with how many people have been praying for Kate Emerson this year. Harry's incredible teacher is in a prayer group and many of the teachers have been praying for Kate all year. It was so nice for them to finally meet her and for me to meet them too. I appreciate each and every prayer and I know that is why this transition has been so easy for our family. Thank you.


  1. Grand Parents Day is so special. The kids always seem to remember it for years and years! ;)

  2. Congratulations on your baby girl. She is so precious. Your boys are darling too.

  3. Thank you for visiting my blog. Your children are beautiful. I love the photos where her big brothers are holding her. I wonder if the people who have prayed for our daughters to come safely home truly know how deeply we appreciate and needed those prayers.
    Welcome Home Kate

  4. Oh Kim, That is wonderful that they call it special friends and grandparents day. We live so far from family that Ian has never gotten to be part of this event!

    I can't think of a better special friend than a sister!


Thank you for your kindness.
