Getting Back on Schedule

Well, the "lazy days" of summer are officially over, for this family anyway. This evening, hubby and I went to a parents meeting at DQ's new high school. Great meeting - friendly but
no-nonsense principal, helpful teachers and guidance counselors who are there to help your child (not treat them like an imposition or a bother - but that's another story). Hubby was very, very impressed, as was I.

So, tomorrow is freshman orientation and a luncheon for DQ. Tuesday is TP's first day of school, and Wednesday is DQ's first day of school. Both kids are in the "dreading it but can't wait to get back, either" stage right now. I'm in melancholy but somewhat excited frame of mind. Melancholy because this year is such an important year for both girls and they are getting more independent, and excited because I am so hopeful that this year will be extraordinary for both of them. I am looking forward to making new friends myself at DQ's new school. I am looking forward to helping TP get ready for college. And I am looking forward to more of a schedule - lately, I have tended to put things off rather than tackle them right away, but I can't do that anymore.

So, I pray that the girls will remain safe and healthy this year, and to continue to be role models to others of what a Christian young woman can be, and to enjoy their academic and social pursuits.

I'll say a prayer for all of you with kids who are starting a new school year, too. God bless them all.

LOL..Drama Queen.

Mine are Glorious Girlchild and Magnificent Manchild

Glad the orientation went well and you like the teachers and, yes, thank God for the counselors. Our elementary school counselor has helped us out tremendously with the Manchild and the loss of his father.

Say a prayer for the mom's while your at it! I am stressed thinking about school starting on Sept. 9th. I need to get clothing and supplies and busses arranged. I feel nervous that I will forget something.

Carol: We've had some school counselors who shouldn've have EVER gone into that field, so it's a true blesiing to find one that truly cares about your child. I'm glad you have one like that.

I love the nicknames of your kids!

Darlene: Yup, the moms are on my prayer list, too. The organizational skills and the patience and the nurturing we do are priceless (and can be exhausting). I wish our school system would wait until after Labor Day like yours - it was that way when I was a kid, so it still feels like they're going back to school in the middle of summer!

I'm glad you qualified that, because my lazy days aren't nearly over.
All my fingers are crossed for them, therefore I cannot eat until I hear good news. I hope it will come.

Thanks, Paul. But PlEASE uncross those fingers, or how will you type for your blog and your comments???? The verdict might be out for a few days - and I'd hate to be responsible for the uproar that would cause in our blogging community (and, for an untimely death lest you should starve!).

My kids start school on the 29th and I totally agree, I wish they'd wait until after Labor Day.

I'm praying for a good year for my children and I'm also praying for the ability to keep it all straight!

Have a great day!

Tyra - And I'll say a prayer that all goes smoothly for you and your kids. "Juggling" for moms should become an Olympic event!

Lord be with DQ and TP, you know their needs. I pray for protection and that you would provide each of them with Godly friends and teachers. Bless Mommy too as she sends them on their way this week. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen

It's going to be a great school year for both girls, I can feel it!

Gee, MKM, you sure can say the nicest things!
The only uproar I'm aware of is the one threatening to break my fingers so I can't type in comments.

Oh Paula - Thank you for the nicest prayer. It means a lot that you came over and visited me today! I think it will be a great year for my girls, too - and I wish the same for your kids, too.

Hey Paul - You'd definitely be missed, so just keep those fingers moving!
