getting ready for school
It's a pretty dark and cloudy day outside. It seems like summer has past us by. School starts on Monday. The kids first order of business is finding their backpacks, and getting all their stuff in order. We have loads of school supplies. I buy these things every time they go on sale. Nicole put them away in our art room. I need to take a picture of our art room. We have a pretty impressive supply of arts and crafts material. Nicole is very well supplied for the University (that begins in October). Monday will be very hard on me. I hate to get up early in the morning. I think we need to get up at 6:30, maybe even 6am. That will hurt! Sarah will be going to an all day school (7:20-4pm). She is excited about that, but I think it's going to be hard for her. Last year she only had school until 1pm, and she eat lunch at home. And I pray Philip finds good friends at his new school. He can ride his bike to school. Thomas will continue to attend his private Christian school. Our only concern is getting him there. We need to be sure he takes the right bus and trains. It will take him an hour there and an hour back. Jessica will stay home awhile longer. It will probably take a few months to figure out how we move forward with her situation. We are looking at an over full weekend. I'm not going to give it much thought. I'm just going to keep working my way out of this mess! Someday I'll be done unpacking, done renovating, done moving! Someday I can just get back to living. That will be good, and I'm working towards that normal.
