We are wrapping up summer this week. We have done dentist appointments, doctor appointments, car appointments, back-to-school shopping, and we even have our first day of school outfits ready to go.
We They I am ready!
But as ready as I am, when I think about that previous sentence I notice some of those momthoughts start creeping in!
I find myself concerned about friends, bullies, teachers, the potty, and all the fleeting summer moments that flew by.
This week really was a doozy. We did more errands this week than we have done all summer. What can I say? I work well under pressure.
Weeks like this and crazy mom thoughts like those previously mentioned require walking. Alone. So I headed out last night and went to my favorite thinking rock.
I had a good chat with my Jesus up there and I thought I would share it with my sweet readers. It went a little something like this:
As my kids all head back to school I want you to know I am a little concerned about a few things.
(Like not so concerned that I think we should homeschool, but enough that I wanted to talk to you about it.)
But first… thank you for the school system. Thank you for the teachers who have patience that must be sent from the Holy Realms and thank you for giving someone the idea that children should be educated by someone better qualified than me. Oh, and thank you for not making me a teacher. I’ll make sure to send lots of gifts, notes, and maybe even volunteer
weekly as needed…
