Two weeks from today my oldest two girls are going to school. One of them to First Grade, one to Kindergarten. Both attending public school for the first time. And while I’m confident this is the best decision for us right now (more on that in a later post, maybe), it’s still a bit disconcerting to think of them being away from me all day. However, I can literally see the door of their school from my driveway, so there is some comfort in knowing that they are right next door.
These two weeks are for getting everyone ready for a new routine, squeezing out a few more beach days (hopefully), finishing up a few of our summer projects, and enjoying the time together during the day.
We had a great vacation in Puerto Rico last week. Also, more on that in a later post. The Lord blessed us with time away from the kids, which we needed, and we came back feeling more prepared to face the challenges that await us each day in being parents. We’re already dreaming of our next vacation, even if it won’t be for a couple of years…
I shared with you last Tuesday about how slow can be uncomfortable, and about Emily P. Freeman’s newest book that came out. Well, for those of you who may have purchased a book from August 11-28, there is a free Conversation Guide available for download here. This would be a great tool for discussing the book with friends, a Bible study group, or just for your own further learning. And, if you haven’t purchased a copy yet, you still have a few days to take advantage of this free offer!
Because #itssimplytuesday today, I’m also GIVING AWAY TWO COPIES of Simply Tuesday!!
Yes, you read that correctly! Two copies of Simply Tuesday are just waiting to get into the mail, on to your doorsteps, and into the minds and hearts of two of you!
