smells like school spirit

The girls were accepted! Hooray! We are thrilled and praising God and so thankful.
They are pleased. They have been excited about going to school next year for a long time. They had no idea the home interview last week was associated with a particular school. I think they would be excited no matter where they went. That said, they have asked about Covenant in particular more than once.
I am really excited though.
It was the weirdest thing. I was out when the mail came. And the girls were out front with daddy. The mailman handed Abby the mail (which she thought was the coolest thing since pressed apple juice). She took that envelope from the little bundle, handed it to Jimmy and said, "Here daddy, it's for you. It's from Debbie."
He didn't know what she meant.
But I do.
When we went to the school a few times to drop off this and that, we visited with Debbie in the office. Abby recognized the Covenant school emblem and made that association.
She is such a little enigma.
Anyway, we are pleased as all get-out. The door has been opened, the prayers answered. Now we will see what they do with it. I am nervous, but joyful in my anticipation.

Non nobis, domine, sed nomini tuo da gloriam.
Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to Your name give glory.
Psalm 115:1
