....at least that's what Noah says he wants to be - a Pediatrician. Cool! :) He LOVES his doctor and always says he wants to be one when he grows up. I hope it sticks! He's also planning on being a chef and a firefighter. Can't say he's not diverse. :)
Well, here he is. My little baby all ready for his first day of Kindergarten this morning. He did SO well, too. David and I walked him in, helped him get ready for his day and followed the morning routine posted on the chalkboard. He was very proud of himself and was walking tall. Then I said, "we'll see you later, Noah. I love you," and his smile disappeared. His eyes got red, his mouth drooped, and he started to cry just a little. Oh boy, this is NOT what I needed to see. So we hugged him, told him Mommy would be back after Art class and that we were SO proud of him. He seemed ok and his teacher walked over to talk to him. She said, "I prayed for him last night." (he had cried a little at parent orientation) Wow, what a huge blessing to have a teacher say that to me the first day of school.
I've taken the video out of my blog. I think the linking site is causing problems on my computer. Plus I don't want it to be something that keeps you from reading my blog if the video is crashing your system.
Oh...here are some more photos from today if you are interested:

Alrighty...the recipe I'll share today is really easy and simple but YUMMY. Noah loves it when I make this for dinner. :) It's great when you want something like lasagna but don't want to take all of that time to make dinner.
8 ounces ziti
1 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes, undrained
1 can (16 ounces) tomato sauce
1 tsp. oregano
1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. dried parsley
1. Cook ziti in boiling, salted water according to package directions; drain.
2. Lightly brown beef and onion in a saucepan. Pour off any excess fat. Add garlic, tomatoes with can liquid, tomato sauce and oregano. Simmer for 15 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 350º.
4. Mix cooked ziti and sauce together in a 2-1/2-quart baking dish. Combine Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses; sprinkle lightly over ziti mixture. Sprinkle with parsley.
5. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Yield: 6 servings
Thank you, Lord, for the gift of raising our son. Thank you for trusting me and David to care for him, raise him, and share with him your precious gift of Jesus.
Bless all of my friends!
