Stella's First Day of Big Girl Preschool

Today is Stella's first day of 4-year-old preschool! She was so excited! In fact, she RAN right into her classroom and never looked back. If only her momma could take it as well!

Lil' Fashionista

Now, this is a look! Stella managed to pull off a great look with my hat, purse, and sandals. Maybe she should start dressing me...

Cheerful Sunflowers

Our sunflower patch has been a great source of joy for me this summer. I just think they are the most bright and cheerful of all flowers!

Second Grade for Porter

Today is the day! Porter is beginning second grade at Garrett Morgan Elementary, and he's actually excited!

Porter's First Day of Second Grade

Grandma Bev is currently visiting with us here in Lexington, and we're blessed that she was able to be part of the first day of school picture.

Porter Walking to School

Here's Porter with his new teacher, Mrs. Howard. She seems really nice (and hopefully tough... he needs that!).

Mountain Views

We're just loving these Colorado mountain views!

Beautiful Colorado

8th Mountain Ranch

While in Colorado, we had the opportunity to visit our friends at 8th Mountain Ranch in Castle Rock.

Porter and Stella at 8th Mountain Ranch

We all had an amazing time!

Stella Riding on Jonathon

8th Mountain Ranch is an incredible non-profit organization founded by our friends, Dale and Amy Eben, that pairs rescued horses with young people who have known pain and struggle. As the two work together, healing and hope are found as they encounter the transforming love of Christ Jesus.

Porter Working with Jonathon

Check out the video below of Stella enjoying a great ride with her new buddy, Jonathon!

Porter wasn't interested in riding a horse, but he was excited to lead one! Check it out:

If you're looking for good soil to sow financial seed, I highly recommend checking out 8th Mountain Ranch's website for more information on their highly transformational organization and programs.
