first days

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway...let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”
― C. JoyBell C.
     Ya think it would get easier. But each year they keep getting OLDER. The nerve of these kids. They were all really excited for the first day of school. Will is now in third grade. Which mean he heads upstairs at the school. I asked him if he wanted to walk down the hall with us and then circle back. He said "no I am ok. I just go up." Yes...but I am not ok! Luke and Rachel love their teachers so they skipped in their classrooms as well. Which is of course much better than peeling them off of me.
     Seeing them go is always so bitter sweet. Hard to say goodbye to the refreshing days of summer. When bedtimes and wake up times are flexible. Where our schedule is way more laid back. But I also do love to watch them grow. I am so proud of the little people they are becoming.
     Luke said he "was awesomely good" all day. Rachel was the princess who a group of children were trying to save on the playground. Will brought home his book bag, folder, and his lunch box. So I declare day one a success.


  1. Hi Thersa, so glad to hear the first day of school went well. Evan's did too. He loves school! Crazy boy :) Hope things are going well for you in school too! Thinking and praying for you.


  2. Lisa- SO glad Evan's day went well! School is crazy busy! Been missing you all. Maybe you will see us soon some Sunday. Scott is starting his new job and he is on straight mon-fri daylights for a bit. Hopefully we can come out for church! Talk with you soon!
