Watch Out, World: Elliott's in 1st Grade!

Problems uploading have delayed this post...
From August 30, 2011. 

My Elliott is a worrier if ever there was one.  He worries about anything and everything you could possibly imagine.  So, of course, I was a little hesitant to talk to him about starting public school for
the first time ever (we homeschooled him for Kindergarten).  But, what do you know, he wasn't worried at all!  Only excited--full of hope and anticipation.  This is Elliott on his first day of school: anxious to see what its all about.  (What a blessing, thank you to those of you who were praying for him for this transition!)
Elliott's first day of first grade was today.  All things considered, he did great! He only cried once...  The only problem is that although his first day began with hope and excitement, now that he knows what's what, the anxiousness and worry has set in for him. We're talking it out and praying with him, encouraging him.  He could use your prayers, too!

There also happens to be a very large hole in our kitchen ceiling (and water falling out of it...) so we decided to have dinner out tonight, partially in honor of our crippled kitchen and partly in celebration of
Elliott making it through his first day of school!  Just like the day he was born, Elliott had a lot of people rooting for him today and we couldn't be more proud of him!
Good job, Elbow! We love you! Keep on punching your fears in the face and we'll be right here for you to help you through it.
