Luke's 1st Day of PEACE!

Bless his heart, Luke might have some peace today (at least for a few hours this morning). Pray for him. He either has really bad gas that Mylicon doesn't help with or he is getting acid reflux. I see several of the signs that the girls had.

Anna's 1st Day of Pre-K

Anna woke up excited too! She came around the corner and hollered BOO because she could see that her daddy was awake and ironing clothes in our bedroom. I wish she'd wake up that happy every morning. She was a little more apprehensive about me leaving than Isabelle was. But she knows her teacher from church and has several friends in her class so there were no tears shed.

Please pray for Anna that she doesn't get in trouble and that she has a positive attitude toward school.

Isabelle's 1st Day of 1st Grade

Isabelle was so excited. She was out of bed the first time Anna went into her room. We didn't have to beg her to get up. The first graders at our school have a long walk from where the car riders get dropped off to where their class rooms are. So, I walked her to class this morning and made her lead the way so that I would know she knew where she was going. She only had to ask directions once.
Please keep her in your prayers today as she starts a new year with a new teacher and new kids.

Luker or Wukee

Here is a picture of Luke with his eyes wide open. The girls for some reason refuse to call anyone by their name. They are always making up nicknames for people. Before Luke was born Anna was calling him Lukee. Only she has trouble saying her L's so it come out sounding like Wukee. Isabelle has recently started calling him Luker. So, between the two girls, he may never be called by his name.

Anna's Dress Up

I went to Isabelle's room today to see what Anna was doing. And all I want to know is when did playing dress up mean anything other than dressing up as a princess or ballerina? What happened to my sweet innocent little girl? Hint: For those of you that are hard of seeing, pay close attention to the Barbie bracelet that she is using for a nose ring and lip ring.

Luke's First Sunday at Church

Today, Luke went to hear his daddy preach for the first time. He slept through the entire thing. He was a doll. It was a good day for the Rushings.

Camping With Grandma

Yesterday, all of the Rushings and a few others met at Styx River for a day of fun. The kids got to swim in the creek, the indoor pool, play on the playground, paint t-shirts, eat watermelon, eat homemade ice cream, and fight with one another. It was a fun day with the family. Here is a picture of the kids and Grandma showing off their t-shirts.

Luke's First Bath

After swimming today, Luke got his first bath. He was unimpressed until Nana started to scrub his head. He was content to just sleep through the bath to begin with. Here are a couple of pictures.

Luke's First Attempt at Swimming

Since Luke's umbilical cord finally fell off, the girls asked if he could go swimming. So, we took him out to the pool for about five minutes before we gave him his first bath. Even though he wasn't thrilled about it, the girls were really excited. On another note, Anna can now go underwater.

Luke meets Mickey

If you have noticed the "Countdown to Disney" ticker on the left column of our website, you may have realized that we will be leaving on yet another Disney vacation in less than 50 Days. We figured it might be helpful to prepare Luke for his first trip to Walt Disney World with a Character Meet & Greet. Luke seems fascinated by the little mouse. Let's hope he is just as fascinated when he meets one that is five feet tall.
