It’s a special time of the year; time for the excitement of new clothes, notebooks, lunch boxes, and the coolest new must-have gadgets. It’s a time to return to the familiarity of life left aside for the summer and an exhaled sigh of settling into a comfortable rhythm of a routine schedule.
And although the initial prep work required to get those angelic faces back into the seats of education is daunting — because let’s face it, elbowing our way through the school supply department, with the endless list of items we are sure our kids will never use, but are absolutely “necessary”, the night before school begins is always great fun — it is well worth it once there is a moment of quiet in the house.
But soon we notice a pull at our mother’s heart. A small tug that can quickly become a tight grip.
So, today I am wondering:
•What was the hardest part about sending your kid(s) back to school?
•What is your biggest worry for your kid(s)?
•If you could ask God for one thing for your kid(s) what would it be?
