First Day of School

First day of school, again.  The house is unbelievably quiet except for the noise from the pool construction next door.  Josh got settled in at DBU over the weekend.  Our niece is also a freshman at DBU this year.  She surprised us by coming to our church yesterday with 3 of her new friends.  We couldn't miss an opportunity to have them with us so we invited them all to lunch at our house.  Josh was here - he's still an intern for our student pastor so we'll have him home every Sunday and Wednesday! (yea for us!)  It was so fun to have a table full of students! 

Jacob got out the door earlier than Jess - she has first block off for the senior year.  He was ready to go.  Well, as ready as a 15 year old can be when it comes to going back to school.  I made his breakfast & his lunch -- yes, I still do that.  I will never get tired of doing that.  It's what I do.

Jessica came down, ready to start her senior year.  I didn't cry!  haha!  I remember all those times when the kids were little and I wasn't allowed to go with them to the first day of school.  Johnny always took them so I wouldn't embarrass them by crying in the building the first day.  Come to think of it, I feel a little teary just now.  It helps that our new school is one mile from our house and Jess and a friend are coming HOME for lunch today.  Yes, I will fix some lunch for them.  It's what I do.  I'm the mama!

So, everyone is off and started on their first day.  Johnny already talked to Josh this morning and he was headed to a delicious cafeteria breakfast and then to class.  I guess I'll go get on with my day and get off this computer.  I've got to hit the 30-Day Shred and then to serious work on my LifeWay project. 

Happy First Day of School everyone!

Serving the King,
