Addie's First Day of Preschool!

Since we've been in and out of town, Addie wasn't able to start back to preschool until today. She is in a 2-K class with some of the same friends from last year! Her teacher is wonderful, and I anticipate another great year! We snapped a few pictures before leaving this morning.

Getting ready to leave for our big day! She is getting SO much better at being still and smiling for the camera. My sweet, big girl!

Eager for her first day back at school! Check out those Keds! Having those clean, white shoes just shouts "Back to School" to me! :)

I thought we would all appreciate seeing how Addie looked when she started school this time last year:

Wow!! Can you believe what a difference a year makes??!! In this picture she was only half-way up the door. In today's picture, she was as tall as the door knob!! Wow! What a year!

Distance Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Our little family is definitely proving this statement true! As part of his last year of Medical School, Justin had to take an away rotation in Ophthalmology in Memphis, TN. Go VOLS! Haha! He will be there until the middle of September. In the mean time, Addie and I try to have a fairly normal routine with my virtual teaching and her preschool. We cherish our time together on the webcam at nights, and Addie loves giving Daddy kisses! We are so proud of all that he is doing and getting to experience and are counting down the days until we see him!

Medical Mission Trip

Due to a few changes in Justin's Senior schedule, he had the opportunity to go on a medical mission trip down to Baja Mexico. We have been there before with our friends from Valdosta three years ago - right before I knew I was expecting Addie. The mission/orphanage there has always had a special place in our hearts, and we really enjoyed being able to minister there. However, this was Justin's first venture on a medical mission trip, and he was excited to be able to use his budding knowledge and experience in medicine on this trip. He was able to sit in on a few eye surgeries and ran the general medicine side of the clinic the week he was there. Even though Addie and I missed him VERY much, we were thrilled he was able to serve the Lord in this new capacity.
Dressed and ready for a busy first day at the clinic!
With all of the surgical expertise on this trip - they carved a Scrabble board out of cardboard for their down-time enjoyment. Guess whose idea this was??!!
