And it is back to school again …
Pushing them along in the morning.
Doing all the work alone all day.
After school snacks.
Homework. (I hope not!)
Listening to their adventures.
Early to bed. (pushing then too)
A routine again after being lazy all summer.
It’s all good I suppose,
but this is one of the first years I wasn’t quite ready for it.
It feels like we’ve barely begun our summer
and now it’s over already.
Do you ever look at your children and think,
“What in the world just happened?
Wasn’t this child just a baby yesterday?”
And then my brain screams,
“I am not old enough for this!”
Ready for 7th grade.
How can that be?
She wanted to be sure and get her book on the picture.
She will read anything! Anything.
Her dad suggested his old favorites and she’s happy to oblige.
And 4th grade?
Where has time gone?
She loves school, but she thrives for her afternoon
at home when her creative mind is unrestrained.
She’ll probably come home and climb a tree
because she had to sit all day.
Mr. D was not very happy.
He wanted to go to Kindergarten now,
not wait until this winter.
And Sam entertains by chasing his tail.
Madison gets one more squeeze in.
We’re thankful Miss Katie is back for another year.
I am so thankful for the blessing of a Christian school,
teachers with a caring heart for the kids,
and that this Mom doesn’t have to push a year
of schooling into her children.
