New School Year
Today my baby started 5th grade. He was dreading it for the last few days (this morning included), but when I dropped him off he said "see ya later Mom" & went off to talk to a group of his friends.
I cannot believe that he is in 5th grade already. It just doesn't seem possible. I still feel like I just brought him home from the hospital yesterday. I am just thankful that he is growing up into a "normal" pre-teen young man. Yes, we have our days....but who doesn't. Besides, given everything we have been through & are still going through, I am glad that he has such a sweet spirit.
Today was also starts a new work year for me. I am no longer a dishwasher at the High School. I am now part of a three lady team at the Middle School & today was my first day. It went great! The 6th graders are kids that I was the lunch lady for last year, so it was nice to see their smiling faces again. Plus, it gave them a smiling face that they recognized. I am so thankful for the job that God has provided for me & I feel so privileged to be serving the kids each day. I started working for the school 2 years ago & I have not regretted a single day there. No matter how crazy & hectic the days are, I love going to work each day. In 2 weeks, I will be starting the second phase of my new job - working food service for an after school program at Taylor's school. I can't wait for that one to start.
Please be in prayer for Taylor this school year. He will have harder homework & more of it each day.
Please pray that we will find a schedule that is perfect for us. With a new school year starting that also means a new AWANA year. That means that Wednesday's will be full & Taylor will have to squeeze homework in & have a later bedtime.
Please pray for me while I adjust to this new position as well as the added position in 2 weeks. While I am looking forward to it, I know it will mean longer days & shorter evenings. I also know that when AWANA starts up it will mean frantic Wednesdays. But I know that God can & will give me the strength I need to get through each day. I also know that I will be able to find the perfect way to fit everything in that needs to be done.
I'm finding it hard to believe that we are already at the second birthday Daron is spending in heaven. That also means that we are movin...
