School Daze

We are back in the groove, the school groove that is.

Our mornings look something like this:

  • Smack at the alarm clock at 5:30.  As I come out of the room, Jared is getting in the shower and Matt is still snoring in his bed.
  • Take Chloe {the dog} or Sweet Pea {the baby} and put them on Matt’s bed to wake him from his slumber.
  • Cook breakfast for hungry boys while nursing my first cup of coffee.
  • Pray over boys as they eat their breakfast.
  • Make sure they haven’t forgotten anything {to no avail!  Most mornings I discover something they forgot after they have left.  This morning it was Matt’s Spanish II notebook}
  • Hug goodbye as they leave for the bus at 6:25.
  • On a good day, I fill my second cup of coffee and get started on my day.  On a real day, I crawl back under the covers and re-set the alarm for 8am.

Matt said his first day went “ok”.  He is on the golf team, which requires a 3 hour practice twice a week.  He had practice last night and that, combine with homework in two of his classes, he was not a happy camper that bedtime rolled around before he touched a video game {I was secretly pleased}.  Jared enjoys school {he is such an extrovert}.  He is going out for the wrestling team this year {although he can’t condition right now because of his finger injury}.

Jason is leaving for MEPS today and will be gone until tomorrow evening.  In about a week, we should know the dates for his basic and AIT training. We signed Miss S. up for her college classes that will begin October 4th.  And, Sweet Pea will be a year old on September 1st.

Life is spinning so fast, I am in a bit of a daze.  I am attempting to embrace each moment as I know life is about to change in big ways.

Embracing Ecclesiastes 3:

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,  a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.  ~Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8
