For the past week on my facebook feed, I have been seeing so many First-Day-of-School pictures. I remember the excitement of wearing my new outfit, with a new backpack full of new school supplies (especially that box of brand new crayons!), and getting ready to go into my new classroom. I was one of those kids that genuinely loved going to school.
One of my favorite things about school was the anticipation of opening my lunchbox. I usually knew what kind of sandwich I would be getting, since my mom always asked me what I wanted. Butter, peanut butter, and homemade pickle slices was one of my favorites. Don’t judge if you haven’t tried it! It was amazing!

I went home to IL a few weeks ago to visit my family and friends. While there, I also go to see my mom’s day care kids. The older ones remembered me, but a couple of the younger ones were too little last time they saw me. One of the little guys, Noah, couldn’t talk last time I saw him… but now he has a huge vocabulary! And he was so funny because instead of calling me “Cole” like all of the other kids do, he called me “Cola”. Too cute! (more…)
Starting today, I will be posting three things that I’m thankful for each Thursday because I have so much to be thankful for! God has blessed me so abundantly with so many good things. Psalm 69:30 says, “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.”
So how can I not try to express my thankfulness to God? So here we go!
1. I am thankful for my mom. She has a way of getting me going until we’re both laughing so hard that we are crying and can’t catch our breath.
