The Big Night
Today was crazy getting school supplies, but God surely blessed. We got the last of two items I was having trouble finding. Fred’s has eight tab pocketed dividers and I just want to shout “glory!” over that.
I just gave both the boys fresh haircuts for the first day of school while we watched the first half of Nancy Drew. We got all the supplies gone through, double bagged, and labeled.
Somehow we have extra “stuff”. I’ll have to try to figure that one out.
My mind is a little boggled by all that needs to happen between 6 and 9 and the AM, on two different schedules but God willing, it will all work out.
It occurs to me that I don’t even know yet what time middle school starts. Seems like that might have been good to cover at open house, but we were distracted that night. We got his schedule. Period. Not the wealth of info a mom needs moving to a new building in my humble opinion. Apparently, he is all grown up now, though he can’t remember to feed the dog and then complains when I remind him.
Should be one wild ride.
Lord, once again, I ask you fill in my gaps. Where I am not enough and miss the boat, you be there for my kids. Be there strong. Show them the way. Guard their steps. Help me teach them wisdom, and help me not panic. You are with them. Let me walk in your gentle strength as you go with me, too.
