First Day Of Kindergarten!

Today is a big day in the Cohn family. It is Jagger's first day of kindergarten! I really never thought this day would come so fast. It feels like yesterday I was in that hospital bed looking at that precious baby boy I was holding in my arms and now, I blinked, and here we are almost 6 years later starting kindergarten! Growing up, you never realize how fast time flies but the older you get the faster it goes. Enjoy every moment!!!
Last night was such an awesome night! Jagger will be in the graduating class of 2027! The parents got together and decided we should do a group picture along with individual pictures. The kids had so much fun running around and playing while we took pictures.


 After the group picture we had to get a picture of the Kindergartener and Senior in the family!! One going in and one coming out!

So anyways, I woke up this morning feeling great! Last night I made sure to get most things sat out. I woke up around 6 to get breakfast going. In our family, Danish rolls are a must! This is something that was new to me when I married Matthew, but he grew up on these. They are basically a cinnamon roll except orange flavoring. My kids love them. I figured the first morning of school would not be complete without a hot orange Danish roll! While fixing breakfast, I got Jagger lunchbox packed. He told me yesterday he would like a turkey sandwich in the shape of a frog (his classroom theme is frogs), ruffle chips, and apples! Frog sandwich coming right up!! We also had frog cupcakes courtesy of Gigi!

 I was so proud of his request, especially the apples...If you know Jagger then you know this is a big deal! The rest of the morning went very smoothly! I thought I would be a huge ball of tears but surprisingly I was not! I did cry yesterday! I actually cried several times yesterday so maybe I got it all out! I am just so excited for this new adventure. I know he is going to have such a wonderful year.
and last but not least the first day of school is not complete without a prayer.....My prayer for you Jagger
Dear God, Thank you for the gift of my child. Please watch over Jagger as he goes  to school this year. Keep him safe every day. Help him to remember that you are right there with him in the halls and classrooms. Help him soak up good knowledge and to dismiss any negative or worldly messages he may hear. Help him treat others with kindness and respect, and to guard his heart with the armor of Your Word. Give him joy and peace! In Jesus Name, Amen.
when I ask him what he wanted to be when he grows up, he answered with own a firework stand!!
 
Hope everyone has a super blessed first day of school!
Lots of love..
