School Started! Hallelujah!!!

Ok, I guess I sound a little too happy, but I am and so are my little tribe members! Funds were short this summer, so we didn't get to do as much as usual, so I think they were more than happy to get back to their friends and be in the midst of it all! LOL! Now I have the joy of dropping off and picking up to and from three different schools. Our school district decided to be the first in the state to charge for bus service, so I'm not the only mom taxi service on the road! Although, day two wasn't as bad as day one, there is a significant increase in the number of cars at school now. Anyway, they all seemed to have had two good days, so I'm looking forward to a blessed year for all!

Day 2.....I forgot to take a picture on Day 1! LOL

Feminine Friday

Hello ladies! I know it's been forever, but I'm back and I thought I'd start up with one of my favorite posts. Over at Buildeth Her House, Valencia is hosting "Feminine Friday" again. I love doing this! I think it's so important to show our femininity, especially when society is trying so hard to steer clear of it! My daughters tease me about not being camera shy and making them take my pic for these posts. But they know what they're for and the point I'm making, so they don't mind.

The fashion industry promotes as little clothing as possible, which makes it hard to find cute, fashionable modest clothing, especially for young ladies. It's our job as Christian women to set the fashion example for the young ladies coming behind us. This was instilled in me as a young child and I still follow suit today.

I bought this little dress (I call it little because it's one of the shorter ones that I own! LOL) at Burlington Coat Factory. It can be worn as a skirt also, so I'll probably show that as a look at another time. I paired it with a little khaki jacket and I got many compliments on it. This pic was taken at a hotel in Ardmore, Oklahoma, when I took a quick getaway with my hubby! He invited me along for one of his airport inspections. Short trip, but fun!

Be Blessed!
