"I hold on to You for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post..." Psalm 63

A new scholastic year...




It's been a busy weekend...


getting the shop moved to storage on Saturday,


and finishing up all the last minute school details.

But, we're ready...and a new year officially begins in 8 hours! I am NOT a morning person...so this presents a challenge to me, especially when Emma informed me she'd need an HOUR to get ready in the morning. Not happening, though...no one should need THAT much time to get ready for 7th grade! We compromised with 35 minutes....plenty of time, really. Nick prefers that I wake him 15 minutes before the bus comes...but that presents another problem since he takes 15 minute showers.




I'm really ready for tomorrow...ready for a routine and somewhat of an organized schedule...but it has been a really great summer. So full and rich...and at the same time, so packed with emotions of all kinds. We've had lots of firsts, lots of lasts, lots of new discoveries and some really great family times. It's been a great 3 months!


Nick in a Gabonese orphanage ...

A week at the beach...

Alot of laughing...

Tommorrow I take the annual "First Day of School" pics...but there will only be two. Missing that third one...but SO pleased with where he is, what he's doing, and the friends he's making.


Yes...it's been a good summer all around....

good morning Sweetie! Hope you get to enjoy a quiet day, a good cup of coffee at Panera's this morning, and some quality quiet time with the Lord as you begin this next leg of your journey. May He give you definite direction, a peaceful heart, and patience in the waiting room. Can you hear Him singing over you with love?
I love you, too! Mom
