Back to School
Back to school. Wow, this summer went by fast! My three teens left the house at 7:10 this morning, one starting middle school, one starting high school and one attending 1 of the only 2 high school classes she has this year. As a junior my oldest teen is beginning classes at the local community college next week. While I have had a few wistful moments, mostly this is a time of excitement for all of us. All these new chapters have loads of good rich past chapters behind them and I am excited to see what continues to unfold in each of their lives.
In the next few weeks my 14 year old and I will head to Central America, specifically El Salvador. The anticipation is tempered this week with the effects of the typhoid immunization pills we are taking. My kiddo seems fine, but more tired than usual. I have a general blah feeling and some tummy discomfort. Thankfully this isn’t the week that I start “back to school”. That is next week for me!
Making Over My Mornings
That’s a lot of big stuff, sending kids off to new schools, going back to school myself and heading off on a mother daughter adventure in the middle of it all! To help me organize and make sure all the big rocks are in place, while not frustrating everyone who is asking “can we add…” I am going back through Money Saving Mom’s Make Over Your Mornings.
Since I’ve already been through this course in depth (about 10-15 minutes a day for 2 weeks), I am going to skim over it in the next few mornings and clean up my master schedule. Last night I was pretty wound up and couldn’t settle down at bed time… the excitement got to me too, and I found myself cleaning my sliding window tracks. Hopefully working over the schedule and making sure all the must dos are these will help me rest more easily the rest of this week!

May the grace and peace of Christ be with you.
