The BIG DAY has arrived!

I do not think we could do anymore to get Tori ready for school.
All that was left was for her to go.
My heart is filled with emotion this morning. We drove the 2 blocks to school this morning. Tomorrow I think we will walk. The traffic was amazing. As I turned the corner and began to see hundreds of kids and their parents going into the building, tears immediately filled my eyes.
As we walked into the building holding hands Tori said, "I just wish I knew at least one person." I said, "The great thing is, that tomorrow you will!"
When we walked in the principal said, "Good morning Tori!"
Those words were a welcomed surprise for us both!
We made it into the classroom and Tori found her desk and sat down.
I could tell she was nervous but I know she is also thrilled to be there!
The Lord has answered some very specific prayers and already shown us that we are in the right place. What a comfort it is to know that this morning while I am talking to the Lord about my precious Tori, his eyes are on her.
We can't wait to hear the afternoon report!

Watching Tori and I leave for school was just almost too much for the remaining three to take!
They sure will be happy to see her this afternoon.

Bless you guys. Every one of the Cash kids spoke Tori's name before God last week at the beginning of our homeschool day. We will continue this week. Love you, friend---

What an exciting day for ya'll! Can't wait to hear how the first day went. The pictures at the bottom are precious. It's funny how our little ones are so used to having their older siblings around all day.

I hope she had a great day! I shared the Scriptures from your previous post with my daughter this morning. I really liked them.

Oh my word - those are both indescribably sweet and hilarious at the same time!! I can't believe this day finally came for Tori (and you!!) - God is so good in the details, is He not? So very faithful. I'm thanking Him today so much. Love you!
