1st Days and Teen-Age ways

I thought I would update everyone on DD's 1st day of high school. Honestly, I think I was hoping for a, "Mommy, I would like to go back to *** for high school" when I picked her up!

When I pulled up to the school Friday afternoon (the longest day ever!) DD hopped in the car -- as only a teen-aged girl can -- and proclaimed, "THAT is the coolest place ever!" She had a wonderful 1st day of school. I don't think I ever had a day at school as good as the one she had. Friday night we spent several hours discecting everything she experienced (or at least the ones she shared with me!). I am glad she was happy.

Saturday found us, (along with at least half the population of 3 counties), converging on the "big mall" AKA. Mall of GA http://www.simon.com/mall/default.aspx?ID=208 for some retail therapy and to take advantage of our state's Sales Tax Free weekend. DD's is a teen-aged girl and my experience has been that teen girls like to shop! We had a fun day getting school supplies, clothes and had a nice long girls lunch at Ruby's in the Mall. We also visited a great scrapbooking shop, Archivers http://www.archiversonline.com so DD could get some cool papers to decorate her new binders with! Of course, a stop at Ultahttp://www.ulta.com was needed to finish off our day...oh, and a drive through Krispy Kreme http://www.krispykreme.com (the boys deserved a reward for all our hours away shopping!).

Thanks to everyone for the prayers and good thoughts (and especially for letting me whine)! God is good and I am still praying that He is with her and she can always remember "Whose she is".

  4. He is good. Hee has been so faithful (as He always is), but it hs been amazing to see how faithful in a group setting where so many are coming aaint the wall and finding, all about the same time, that He is. Yesterday was a huge day as far as the new Women's ministry I am involved in goes where we had to meet the church's executive pastor (whom we have dubbed "Head of Everything" about some issues) and once again the Lord was faithful Praise the Lord!

  5. Oh, yes we do want our dd's to remember they are Daughter's of the King, don't we?? I'm with you on that. What a great report! I hope I can say the same for mine when she goes on the 21st. And the day of shopping--let me just say what a cool mom you are, to do each of the things you did....mall shopping, ARChIvers (i've only been on their website so I know I would LOVE it!), ULTA, which is my dd's most fav. store, and then KK......uh-huh, you are one hip mamma!!! Glad for the great report and glad to know you are experiencing God's faithfulness and goodness!!!

  7. You always make me homesick, Bell-ah! I miss Mall of America and especially the tax-free day. We lived 3 miles from the GA state line so guess where we went all the time?

    Also, Krispy Kreme in Chattanooga. I really miss it. My eldest worked there and so did my exhusband. We have one here but it's not the same.
    I'm so tickled she had a great day! God is good, all the time.

  11. Sounded good! Prayers that she will shine! And, of course, many hugs to you as well, my friend.

    BTW...Krispy Keeme came into our area and left, ah well.
