Last week, Mallory and I went to the James Avery jewelry store. I bought both of us matching silver heart charms. Every day Mallory and I will wear our charms on our necklaces and be reminded of how much we love each other. She's wearing her charm on the same chain with the angel charm Nana gave her for Christmas. That way she can be reminded that I love her and she's Nana's little angel. :-) The first day of school, Mallory didn't think about her necklace, but today she told me she held on to it at one time when she was a little afraid and said to herself, "Mommy loves me. Mommy loves me. Nana loves me. Nana loves me." That was precious to me today. I have told her over and over that Mommy won't be able to be with her at school, but that God is with her at all times. It was a wonderful teaching opportunity for me and she knows that she can call on God at any time and that He is always with her. Thank you, Lord, for blessing us with two wonderful days of school!
Here are a few pics of Mallory's 1st day...
Nana made her precious zebra print outfit. And of course little brother just had to be in the picture, paci and all!
I made her backpack and we got her little lunch box at Canton.

It was a great first day! I'm just thankful I don't have to have another "1st day of kindergarten" for 4 more years!!! Whew!!!
