Monday

My grandson starts 6th grade today - middle school - not only is it a new school - he is going to a Christian private school - if you'd say a quick little prayer for him - I'd appreciate it. A lot of you prayed for him to get in this school months ago.  Thanks again.  



Do you think this was an old barn redone as a store or was it always a store?  Just looked like a barn to me.





 


PEACH CROSTATA

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
In a large bowl toss 1 pound peaches peeled and thinly sliced
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon of ground ginger
pinch of salt
1 ready to use pie crust - lay on cookie sheet

leave 2 inch border  and fold over filling

Happy first day of school little man.

Sandra said...

I prayed for GS to find good friends and to have no fear of new school and for protection for him.
i think the store was built like a barn. we have two here that look lie barns and they were built as stores. the Feed and Seed looks just like an old old barn, but is not.

Shelly said...

Prayed for him- he is going to have a greatr year!

Nonnie said...

Prayers for him in his new environment and confidence. Your posts refresh me. Just reading the side bars make me smile. Thank you.

Peach Crostata? Sounds delicious! We're thinking peaches today. :-)

That first day of school is always intimidating, isn't it.

How's the peach crop in Georgia this year??

Jill said...

Love the chickadees and the verse. LOVE it!

God be with your grandson today and very day. I do hope he loves his new school and that they love him!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I prayed last night and again this morning! I know he will be fine! Now you need to take some time for you. Hugs, Linda

Jeanie said...

I hope your grandson has a great first day of school. My oldest grandson is also going into 6th grade (starts next Monday) but his elementary school goes through 6th grade so he has another year before middle school.

Beth said...

I said a prayer for your grandson that his first day at school will be a wonderful experience.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Hoping he has a wonderful day today. What a blessing that he's in that school.

I'll be praying for your grandson and all my grands too that they have a great school year. It's scary going to a new school. I have them all ages from 2nd year college down to 2 months old. When I talked to one of my granddaughters yesterday she was very excited as she's going into a new school too. She loves school and I hope that she always finds it a good place to learn and grow.

Soggibottom said...

Ah, bless, it might be a middle school to us, to him it's a whole new world... good luck little guy.

Not sure about the barn, could be a garage ?
:-)
Thanks for putting up with me a few days ago ha ha.. happy sharing days :-) x x x

Susan said...

Wow! I didn't know school started so early in Georgia. He'll do great, Sandie. And yes, prayers are rolling!

Hey! I like your new profile photo. So cool. You look glam! Susan

Renae said...

oh dear Chatty!

I started my morning off early then headed back to bed. But, when I read your prayer request, I acted upon it right then and there.

I love your thought for the day. Those birdies are so serious and cute.

Me thinks that has always been a store. Sensible building for a store.

happy week! happy monday!

Paula said...

Good luck to your grandson with his new school. I think the store was just built to have that barn look. Just my opinion of course.

Thisisme. said...

Hi Sandie. Yes, I did pray that your grandson would get into the school of your choice, and I am praying now that he will settle in, do well, and make lots of nice, new friends. It is such a worry, isn't it?! Eli will be starting 'big' school in early September. He was only four at the end of June. It's far too early I think, but they only have one intake a year now . Hope all is well with you, and that hubby is now fighting fit again!

Blondee said...

I pray grandson has a super first day and makes some great friends at his new school. :)

Love, love, love peaches! Sounds yummy!

Sally said...

Prayers for GS!

Have a happy day! :)

EM Illustrator said...

Happy First day at school to GS!

Jim said...

Hi Sandie ~~ I prayed for the GS in his first day and then for as long as he goes there. I also prayed for the teachers that have him that they will help this 'new kid' to adapt and help the others to make friends with him.

If it is red and looks like a barn it doesn't have to smell like a barn to be one. My vote is YES. I can imagine that they sell koloches and sausage sandwiches there plus have a little bakery.

I might try (probably not) your peach crostata. The recipe makes it sound really good, especially with some 'Blue Bell Lite Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.'
..
I'll pray for that and for him more. He was already on my prayer list.

Betsy Adams said...

Prayers for that sweet little grandson of yours. I'll bet that all of you were very excited this morning.... Hope he had a good first day.

Love the thought for the day --especially the photo. Those little Chickadees are precious.
Hugs,
Betsy

Alice Arthigton said...

barbara l. hale said...

Best of luck to your grandson in his new school!

Miss Debbie said...

Starting in a new school is always tough.I hope he had a good day today and I pray it is his best year ever!!

mare ball said...

happy to say a prayer for your little 6th-grader. I love the song "Who am I?"

Ann said...

Hope the first day of school was a good one.
I'm betting that was always a store and just built to look like that

Dee said...

Just said a prayer for your grandson...my son went to a christian school when he started The sixth grade and did real well.It was a good decision. He is 38 now. I do not think that is or was a barn. :)

KC said...

G'Day Sandie,

Wow! I can't believe how quickly that's come around - your grandson now in his new school and year six!

I hope he will enjoy his new school and have a wonderful year learning lots of new and really cool stuff!

Much love, Kerrie xoxo

Buttercup said...

You all have my prayers, especially Andy. Hope he had a good day and has a great transition. Hugs across the miles!

jack69 said...

They probably ordered a barn, then decided .. well..Why not!!!

Good for you guys and the private school, I believe it gives a child a leg up. Too many discipline problems in public school anymore, and that is a shame.
SWEET the birds on the cups, appro the captioning.

Michaele said...

A prayer for you, and him, sent : )

Mevely317 said...

I was actually thinking of ya'all this morning while brushing my teeth. (What one has to do with the other, I don't have a clue!)
Hope Andy arrived home this afternoon with glowing stories!

Belle said...

I've been praying for your sweet grandson. I'm sure he will have a wonderful year. I like what the coffee cups say!

Clint said...

I don't know what to say except that grandchildren are so lucky to have grandparents like you. They will remember you forever.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Congrats to your grandson!

Lots of neat items in this post, but the last is my favorite. :)

andy said...

Im banking on that saying of the day! !!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I am so excited for your GS. I have a feeling he will be excited too
love

Angela said...

I hope he had a great first day! I'm trying to get my kids ready for their first day on the 23rd. Did some school shopping today.

Mary said...

That is a lovely recognition of prayer for purpose...I wish him well for his year. It's great to be able to choose the school you feel will best fit for him, the entire family.

SquirrelQueen said...

It just seems so early for school to be starting. It's going to be another two weeks here.

The Crostata sounds delicious. It makes me want some peaches but the ones I have seen so far haven't been that good.

TARYTERRE said...

Hope your grandson had a GOOD day in his NEW school. I'm sure he'll be fine after a little adjustment period. Have never made a crostata. Will pass the recipe on to my mom since I'm avoiding sweets. take care.

Lynn said...

I hope it went well! Sorry I'm always on the tail end. I have a new work function that is keeping me extremely busy at work and then I often have some church committee or other to go to after work.

That peach thing sounds marvelous.

LL Cool Joe said...

Oh big day at a new school! My prayers are with him.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Hope it went well for him.
Love the verse with the birds on the cups. Hope you have a great week ahead. Love, Debby
