The Saturday before school started, the girls laid out their clothes and got their backpacks ready. Making sure that everything was in their bag that needed to be. Gracie needed her "lucky monkey" key chain to help her not be scared. By the end of the night, they had their name tag, a bottle of hand sanitizer and a lucky monkey hanging off their bags.
Sunday was the big Back to School Sunday at church. The bounce houses and breakfast where good but the highlight of the day was the annual Blessing of the Backpacks! The girls look forward to going up front, being prayed over and getting their backpack tag. As soon as they got back to their seat, we had to put it on the bag. That night, they had a hard time going to sleep. They were anxious and excited. Gracie was particularly concerned.
